We are excited for this trip because it marks our first trip serving as Directors of Education. We are laying some groundwork for our ministry duties once we are in country permanently. We plan to take Devenel on a university visit to UCI (United Christians International) or in Kreyol (Université Chrétienne de la Communauté de Caîman). He will be our first student that has the opportunity to attend university in Haiti! Pray with us that he gains clarity in his long-term goals through this process. We are proud of his commitment to finishing high school and exploring options that will allow him to be a leader in his community in the future. At UCI we will meet with the missionary family that runs this ministry. We will discuss educational options for our students, tuition costs, and career placement.
We will be assessing the kids at HHH that are unable to attend traditional Haitian schools. Our goal is to determine the best plan of action to prepare them for an independent life after their time with us. This may include on-site education, but will definitely include vocational training. We pray that they will be a positive influence on their community as well.
There is always so much preparation that goes into a trip to Haiti. So many things to remember!
Our plans also include some video work! Stay tuned next week for an announcement….involving baseball….!!
