In January of 2017, Brad and Danyel and their children took the plunge to move in to our neighborhood and help us in our work here on the Plateau.  In the months from then to now, they have had almost every experience you can have as an overseas missionary: frequent illness from new bacteria…

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves…” Twenty-two years ago, God used these words to prompt me to reach out to the destitute around me and to be a voice for them where their voices could not reach. Today, these same words prompt me to bring their voices to you. As we close…

The 2017-2018 Lemuel Yearbook is ready, and you can view it right from your computer (see below)! We are pretty excited about this digital booklet full of pictures and stories from the past year! As you look through it, we hope you are encouraged to see all that God is doing on the Plateau. Be…

  Phew, everybody!  I do apologize for the delay in getting a blog post up these days.  For one thing, the internet (need I say more?).  For another, there’s been a lot going on as we close another school/work year. So let me catch you up on what’s been going on as we wrap up:…

  It’s final exam week–school is almost out! Which means, I am a bit late with this post.  But, I’ll give you a peek into the final weeks of fifth, sixth, and seventh grade.   Fifth Grade   With seven students, the fifth grade class is the smallest in the school this year.  Their favorite…

  This year is just flying by!  I can hardly believe the students have only a few more weeks of school.  As construction continues on the school buildings, the kids have been moved to temporary classrooms.  The first, second, third, and fourth graders are in the cafeteria.  Meet them below, and find out what they’ve…

One of the men pictured above is Sebyen.  Sebyen wasn’t expected to really go very far in life.  He is fully functional, but mentally slow.  There is no specialized help for people with mental disabilities out where we live, so most of them are cared for by their families, but also generally laughed at and…

Primary School: The second floor is poured, the walls are up, and one staircase is poured!  Currently, there is a crew working on the next stage for finishing the walls.  (It’s called krepisaj in Creole, but I can never remember the English term.)   Pouring major cement slabs is always quite an event.  Catch a bit…

Last month, Pine Grove Community Church in Wisconsin came to run the last English Camp of the year.  The kids have the time of their lives! They get to color, play games, meet new people, and experience a change-up from their regular routine….and of course, they learn a lot too!  See the proof in the…

  This week, the construction on the primary school building has been in full swing.  We are so thrilled and thankful to see this dream becoming a reality.  Lemuel’s co-founder, Ginger Muchmore, was there at the beginning, when Lemuel’s first school started under a tree.  Below, she shares her perspective looking back–a testimony to God’s…
