Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas with love to each of you!

Merry Christmas with love to each of you!

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”  Luke 2:11

We want to send our love and greetings to our family and friends far and wide! Thanks for your love and support. We miss all of you, but remain blessed and thankful to be serving here. Evan is here for three weeks, so we are enjoying our time together!

And this month we had our second Haiti anniversary! God has been faithful in providing each and every day for two years. Thanks for your continued prayers and for the many deeds and expressions of support. We couldn’t do this without what you do to back us up.

May God especially bless you and your families this Christmas!

Teachers Needed at Cite Lumiere Christian School!

On Friday the entire school comes in uniform! Three teachers will be leaving at the end of the school year.

On Friday the entire school comes in uniform! Two teachers will be leaving at the end of the school year. Several missionaries are already sharing an open position this year. The support is incredible!

A Wonderful Opportunity!

Grace attends the local Christian missionary school here at Cite Lumiere. She loves the small size and the great teachers! Unfortunately there are teachers moving at the end of the year and gaps need filled. Do you know of anyone who would we be willing to teach for one year or possibly many years in Haiti? This is a wonderful opportunity for the person or family with the heart to serve! Is God calling you?

For more information about available positions, salary, and housing, contact the school Principal, Mrs. Karen Martin, at clcsprincipal@gmail.com.

Please pass along this information to anyone you think may be interested. Thank you very much!

Getting ready for Christmas in Haiti is just as exciting as at your house!

Only in Haiti… (4)

Here are photos of some amazing things we think are sort of unique to Haiti! What do you think?

Mud cookies, 1/2¢ each, are a mixture of mud, cornmeal and salt. The sad reality is this is the only affordable food for some families. It's sort of like eating a piece of pottery.

Mud cookies, 1/2¢ each. It’s probably like eating a piece of pottery. The sad reality is this is the only affordable food for some families as food prices have increased 100%.

Mud cookies are sold all over Haiti, but Haitians appear to be ashamed of them.
