Thank You, Lord, for Bringing the Children Home!

By the grace of God, all 26 orphans who lived at Angel House Orphanage were granted "parole status" visas and allowed to go home to their waiting families in the United States and Canada. Many volunteers and adoptive parents worked hard to achieve this goal for the children after the horrific earthquake which took place in Haiti on January 12th. So many families and friends of Three Angels prayed for the children and their safety. In the end, God heard each prayer. The children arrived in the U.S. in the early evening of Monday, January 18th.

Please visit this link to view a wonderful video created by Missionary Flights International. It was this organization which flew all the children and escorts to Ft. Pierce, Florida to meet with their families. Without the assistance of MFI, these amazing and heart-warming reunions would not have happened.

Three Angels would like to say thank you to everyone who helped bring our children home. Thank you, Lord, for bringing the children home to their forever families!

Even In the Midst of a Storm...

...there is sunshine in these smiles.

God, thank you for the opportunity to see our children during this time of devastation. Please be with the people in Haiti as they ride the wave of effects from the earthquake. Watch over our families of Three Angels and protect them. We love You, Lord, and are forever grateful for you faithfulness and devotion. Please be with Abbey as she takes care of the children, and please bless Megan for her selflessness to check on the children and send these photos to us. Heavenly Father, thank you for sending these sunshines of smiles to us today. In Your son Jesus' name, Amen.

***These photos were sent from Megan Haug, our past Angel House Orphanage manager, today. Megan has been traveling several miles each day, from the mission in which she currently works, to check on everyone at Three Angels. She has been sending updates to us when internet is available. Words can never express the gratitude and appreciation we feel for Megan's heroic efforts to keep us informed.

Much love and prayers to our TA's families in the U.S. and in Haiti,
Colleen Monfils

The Treasure Chest

Miss Abbey has a special way of recognizing good behavior in the home school classroom at Angel House. Each child is able to receive a sticker on a sticker chart for following the class rules, doing seat work, getting along with the other students, etc. Every so often, the kids have the opportunity to go shopping at the "Treasure Chest Store" and pick out so fun surprises based on the number of stickers they have earned.

The kids have responded so well to this new incentive program. Not only are the working on behaving during school, they are learning the value of saving up for something special. This is a wonderful way to accentuate the positive behavior but also allow the children to have some personal treasures of their own.

Thank you once again, Miss Abbey, for making home school so fun! You are such a blessing to all the children at Angel House!

Pumpkin Bread - Yum!

It wouldn't be any fun if we didn't get to EAT the pumpkin bread some of the children made. After baking the bread and letting it cool, everyone enjoyed a piece of fresh pen gimou in addition to their regular snack of Baguette and mamba.

Pumpkins In Haiti

It's fall in Haiti, too! Last week we read a book about the
pumpkin patch, so of course we had to make something
edible using PUMPKINS!!!

The older six children helped make an amazing
loaf of pumpkin bread.

As we went through the recipe, each child got
the chance to taste each individual ingredient (tongues out!)
except for the raw egg! :-)

The children at Angel House were introduced to a...newly-found snail. Edward, as the children named it, spent a couple of days at the orphanage.
Wanting the children to enjoy the amazing creativity of our God, the week was spent learning about snails and other wonderful animals God has created. What a fun way to learn --- hands-on with a really cool visual aid!During Edward's visit, Reece was the only one brave enough to hold the snail (including the grown-ups!) So once the snail lesson was complete, all the kids decided it was best to let Edward go back home - into nature, another one of God's awesome creations!

Thank you for making learning fun, Edward!
