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!

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!
