New Bible Workbooks, a Wedding and other Updates!

New 1st and 2nd grade Bible books are here!

It was exciting to finally get the new Bible materials shipped here and sent out to the schools last week! We have been planning for this for over a year and we are happy that the kids in 150 schools will start having a Bible class every day. We are starting the program slowly with the 1st and 2nd graders this year. As they get used to the new material we will keep adding a grade every year as they move up.

High school Bible teachers are currently getting trained to teach the older grades and we will be doing a trial run with Bible courses in three high schools this year. In a few years, over 10,000 kids will be in the Bible daily!

Presenting the Salvation seminar in L’asile recently.

Teaching salvation is a privilege!

Salvation seminars continue and we enjoy the interaction with the people and the questions we get afterward! There is always a great hunger for God’s word. Once the pastors and teachers complete the Salvation study, they return them to get “graded” and then they get more studies and Bibles so they can teach their 7th or 8th graders in turn!

Audience participation has been very helpful!

A new Bible for each teacher allows them to fill out the study!

We were able to help with a wedding right after we returned to Haiti, serving as main taxi for the weekend! David and Kayla Brown got married, and their guests came from all over. We picked up people at the bus station, delivered people to and from the wedding and reception, as well as took David and Kayla to and from their honeymoon! What a Haitian experience!

Transporting family and friends to the wedding!

We would pull up at the designated bus stop and the whole crowd would try to pile right in! Once we even had to pull several boys out so the old people could get in. One group demanded that we take them somewhere else, but we had to get to the reception ourselves, so they had to give in!

The looooong wedding service!

Transporting several loads to the reception!

After a hectic week and a very long day, the couple was visible exhausted at their reception!

David and Kayla are the first married in both of their families. They are important Christian role models to their siblings and the entire community as very few people get married at their age.

It was a blessing to part of this David & Kayla’s wedding weekend!

Grace has settled into her 6th grade class with a new teacher from Louisiana, Miss Stakes. She keeps busy with her friends and continues to be very creative.

Part of the 6th and 7th grade class at the opening day program!

Hard to believe Grace is a 6th grader already!

Afternoons are for friends and the freedom to still be a kid!

A fun day of swimming and fun with friends at nearby Camp Mahaniam!

Evangelism training courses continue as time allows. We try to take along the ones we have been training to continue to teach them more fully. It is a blessing to work in different areas, but we see a big difference in Bible knowledge from the urban areas to the rural.

This is how some of our visual aids made it to the church, Haitian style! Can you do this?

Trinity and Madam Yadley are in front here giving examples!
