The Wall Must Go Up - Part II

Today, we poured the third shear wall since renovations on campus began. This pour completed the west end of the girls' dorm (Clare Heureuse Building) and puts us at the half-way mark for the building renovation. The Philo class pitched in and did a great job. It reminded me of the old days when we were involved daily in construction. It was a great day!

Taking Care of Business and Making Some as Well....

This past week, we had the pleasure of having a personal meeting with Archbishop Guy Poulard, who was recently named to be the Archbishop for Port au Prince. We flew to meet him at his residence in Les Cayes where he has been bishop for only 20 months. It was a wonderful meeting. At the end of the meeting, he personally drove us back to the regional airport. He is a wisp of a man with steel spirituality. He is humble, but a strong advocate for the people and a capable leader. 

It's a Wrap—Almost. It's a Start.

As we wait for the final announcements of Haiti’s election results and the next steps, in the Louverture Cleary School (LCS) community we continue to build from the ground up—literally.

The roof will be complete on our 10th house build today. The doors will go on by Friday. Presto: A house. To make it a home we will continue to work with Alype, who helped build the house for his family, as he works to parent his two children, who are both in the Timoun program. This home, small as it is, will provide an integral part in preserving families in our neighborhood—the fundamental unit in any society.
