High School Buddies

Within walking distance of Angel House is a Christian school called Quisqueya. Quisqueya School is associated with Port au Prince Fellowship Church where many of our mission teams attend service on Sunday mornings. It is a K-12 school; which serves missionary families and the Haitian bourgeois in the Port au Prince area.

Most recently, Angel House and Quisqueya School have teamed up to work together. The first Thursday of each month, 10th graders come to work with the children at Angel House. The ratio of teens to orphans is 1 to 1, so the children are getting lots of attention! In addition, the children have been paired up with the students for the school year allowing everyone to form a special bond.

This month the teens played group games with the kids, ate lunch with them, went crazy with stickers and face paint. They played with the giant parachute and decorated cupcakes. The kids loved the attention and affection and cannot wait for their High School Buddies to return.

Lukeson is our youngest at TA and he still needs a Mama....

In fact we have 2 baby boys and Stephy that still need families. We will put them on the website, but we were getting so much interest for a while that I thought we could find them homes just from referrals internally. He is a snuggler and all three kids are paper ready!

Taking time out to play in the rain with Teacher Abbey. (You know the nannies thought they were crazy!) Thank you, Abbey, for teaching our children to write, read and to play!

Here is an update that Abbey sent to us this week:

· The older kids know their number places 1-10th and a nifty little song to help remember!
· Hermann has responded well to the one-on-one tutoring with Marcia and Marcia has discovered that his best time of day is right after nap time.
· Abbey began reading Price Caspian with the older kids. They’re all hanging with it thus far (but I think Reece is getting the most out of it) and we just finished chapter 5.
· We had a team of 32 teens from Quesquaias Christian school in Thursday. They played with the kids, did activities, etc., and will be volunteering the first Thursday of every month!
· All of the older kids are finally on the same page with their handwriting.
· Fritzner helped with school two days in the afternoon & it was very helpful.

Thank you, Abbey and Marcia!
