Teacher Summit Thursday update

The day was incredible again!  The Summit went smoothly and at the end we were honored to ride to a Haiti Partners School in Cabois with the principal.  He and the assistant showed us all around the school.  We then climbed even higher up the mountainside and visited several teachers houses.  It never gets old to be walking on a dusty path, pass by a bull, then see a child with a container of water on their head, and then pass a river with a person and a cow bathing.  The line of young kids begins to follow us as we walk along.    

2014 Teacher Summit Wednesday update

Praise God -the team arrived in Haiti safe and sound!  The adults on the trip have all been to Haiti before and are thrilled to be back.  The students that came along with us were slightly overwhelmed at the Port-au-Prince airport but also very excited to be here.  The kids and adults parted ways for just a few days.  The students are leading a VBS at the Children's Academy and are being well cared for by John and Merline Engle and Tonya Grotenhuis.  The teachers headed to Leogane for the first session of the teacher summit. 

2014 Teacher Summit

On Tuesday morning at 1:30 a.m. we are off to the airport to depart for our Teacher Summit in Haiti.   There are 16 of us traveling, 6 being high school students.   We are so excited to go and see our Haitian friends again!  All 9 of the teachers going on our team have been to Haiti with this group previously so we are ready to dive right in with them!  

Leech Lake Mission Trip Wednesday

Hello everyone from a very sunny and warm Cass Lake, Minnesota. We are excited to give you a little update on the work we have been doing. Today was the day that we switched our service sites. A few students worked in the OSC - Outrageous Sports Camp- that also takes place at the Boys and Girls Club. In the OSC we work with Middle school and High school kids. We play basketball and other sports. From 9:30-11:30 we play lightning, do drills, and scrimmage. This is a time for them to get all of their energy out!

Leech Lake Mission Trip Tuesday

The day started out with a delicious breakfast of waffles, sausage and many other scrumptious selections.  After downing a few waffles and making our lunches for the day, we prepared for a time of meditation in the word of God.  It was an awesome way to reflect on yesterday's blessings and today's opportunities.  Following devotions, we headed straight to our work sites for the day: kids club, work projects or sports camp.  At the work sites, we planted a tomato garden and continued to scrape paint off of buildings in the community to prepare the spaces for bigger and better things.
