School Teachers

School in Port-au-Prince
While at Bethel Reformed about a month ago a friend was asking me about the school in Port-au-Prince.  He was wondering whether the work was complete.  I told him that the school is far from complete.  Classes were taking place, but we call a halt, the main teacher (she is among the few who have agreed to make sacrifice to work with us for a meager compensation.  She is not easily replaceable); she was due to give birth to her first baby in May (I think, I need to check my facts on this one, Elidia was not available to confirm for me).  There were also some security concerns.  Elidia was getting scared for her safety. But the classes are due to resumed once the teacher is back to her post. Please pray for the safety of our friends in the Bolosse area.  Pray for the number of workers willing to take over and to continue with the work and for it to improve.  Pray for Elidia that God will bless her with leadership skills along with brother Marc.

Good News
Saint Francis Xavier University (Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada) is offering a scholarship to Grace Corps helpers in Haiti.  If somebody has collaborated with us in the past and wants to take advantage of the scholarship at Coady International Institute, they can apply online.  Once they are approved they receive a 60 to 75% off the tuition for a number of ongoing workshops that the Institute organizes to help good standing organizations in developing countries.  We have a number of candidates already, myself (Robers), Marc Isma, Elidia Jennifer Jean, Thamar Ameris, Sheila Henri and others.  Grace Corps will be responsible for their airfare and about $1000 of the $3500 for the classes and lodging.  The government of Canada will cover the rest.  So any help you can provide to cover Grace Corps' expenses will be welcomed.

YES Camp and Binard Medical Clinic
The Binard Medical Clinic was the first step toward establishing the camp in the Southern part of Haiti.  Binard being one of our sites we want to make sure that there are adequate medical materials available in case of emergency with the youth teams that will be going up there. One of our teachers is responsible to get it going.  The Camp will be based in Cayes with sites in Baraderes, Pestel and Binard.  We will be building the first camp of its kind in Haiti.  It will essentially be an educational camp to help young Haitians understand, protect and carefully use the environment to their benefit.
