June 2015: Graduations in Haiti.

June has been filled with many great memories, but below are 2 specific moments that I will never forget.
I had the joy of going to 2 school graduations this month!

The first was the Leveque Kindergarten graduation, & it was extra special because Debus graduated! I could probably write about this for days, but I’ll keep it short: I am unbelievably proud of this kid & his family! It has been a joy to watch the Lord provide for him, & to see the community support him. I’m believing big things for this kid!

Kindergarten graduation is a HUGE celebration here in Haiti, & below are some fun photos from this joy-filled day!


anxiously awaiting his turn!

Ozanna is proud of her boy. Look at that proud mama look!


The second graduation was the High School Graduation at the School of Hope. 125 graduates walked the stage, & there was so much joy & excitement that filled the church. It was incredibly fun to see some of my friends included in those 125 faces. A local Village Champion, an employee’s daughter, friend’s nieces & nephews, & my beautiful friend Macline. Macline is no stranger to those of you who read my blog, & it was SO fun to celebrate this day with her. She is the first MOH orphanage child to graduate high school & she has dreams of becoming a lawyer to help the children of Haiti.

Below are some photos of this exciting time for these students & the Graduation Party for Macline!
