Today Arick, Rachel, Bree and Emily left for the USA and home; we miss them so much already!
Been a quiet day, Courtney and Auntie Di went back to Maranatha Orphanage for Courtney’s last presentation on the Circle of Security for Byron, Shelley, Sue, James (from CA) Katie and myself. This is the English DVD that is going to be translated into Creole for Courtney’s next trip in February 2014. Very enlightening for us all!
The rest of the day is being spent resting and catching up on reports, for Courtney; her awesome work never ends. Everyone here (teachers, caregivers, and families) is very appreciative of all the information she has given them on how to care for infants and toddlers who have been through neglect and trauma. These Haitian children are precious and they are the generation who will make positive changes for their countrymen and their country.
A.J. spent the day fixing a washing machine at Maranatha. He always does great work, learning new skills as he goes, and innovating with the tools and parts he has available. He has such a willing heart to serve, and will continue to be a blessing in the coming week.
