What an amazing year God once again gave us at Haiti Awake. Here are a few of the highlights.
In January, God sent Hattie Pridgen to work with us. What an amazing lady she is. She worked harder than any of the rest of us each day . . .and was still looking for more that could be done. How we enjoyed having her in Haiti!
February brought sadness as one of our staff members lost his godfather through tragic circumstances. But we all came together to support and encourage him during his time of grief.
March and April allowed us the opportunity to host two separate spring break teams - one for Amplified Youth with Pastor Rusty Smith and one with a group from Wilmington Christian Academy.
June brought teams to Haiti Awake, as well as a new baby to Steeve and Manoucheka's home - Lorie. One of the teams was from Mission Made Jewelry. We are thankful for our partnership with Mission Made Jewelry.
In late July, The Bridge Church sent its first team to partner with Haiti Awake. What a blessing! We're looking forward to more teams from The Bridge in 2017.
Steeve began his second year at STEP, and Becky was able to spend a long weekend in Haiti in September, specifically focused on the children and their future.
October was difficult, but we saw God use Hurricane Matthew to expand our ministry . . .and open doors for 2017.
We had the privilege of hosting another team from Mission Made Jewelry in early November, and Rick and Becky also were able to go down in late November to visit the work in Les Cayes.
And, the highlight of December has been Steeve and Polo's US visit. So thankful for the opportunities God is giving them.
We look forward to 2017 with great anticipation as we praise God for all that He has done in 2016. Glwa pou Bondye.
