It was a stressful weekend as we evaluated and made decisions based on the erupting and unpredictable political tensions in our country. We postponed a group due to arrive today for a visit. And we were not at all sure about Gigi, Pastor Beerley, and Jane making it to Port-au-Prince for their flight home today….

Every school day, our wonderful cafeteria crew prepares a hot meal for the school kids and staff. It’s a lot of hard work shopping in the market, lifting heavy pots, cooking in the heat, and washing piles of dirty dishes, but they are a cheery group, always ready to greet visitors to their kitchen with…

Today, Lemuel co-founder Gigi Muchmore showed the kindergarten teachers how to make a good batch of playdough. Every Tuesday, Judy prepares some kind of training for the kindergarten ladies. These girls are motivated, hard-working, kind-hearted, and always eager to learn new things they can apply in the classroom. Even more, they are a great group…

Nou kapab rebwaze kominote nou! (We can reforest our community!) Learning to value and care for trees is part of our curriculum! Every Friday, the kids in Lemuel’s school work together with their teachers to water the trees in the school yard. These students and the young trees will grow together!

Read and live through a medical emergency with us on the Plateau, and find out how it became a testimony to the love of God… On Wednesday afternoon, the air was suddenly shattered by loud cries and commotion on the road in front of Lemuel.  One of our first grade students was crossing the road…

These are the teachers, classroom aids, admin members, and other staff who will be pouring themselves into the next generation in our school this year.  You will get to know them better in the days ahead!

The first day of school was September 4th.  We opened with a special prayer service to commit the year to the Lord. We spent time encouraging and praying for the students, the parents, and the school staff. Classes started the next day! Thanks to some kind friends, each child received a brand new backpack with…

People are both what we will leave behind on this earth and what will endure beyond time into eternity. Last year, Lemuel experienced a lot of growth, and God provided for some exciting projects, such as the well and the school construction. This year, the Lord has laid it on our hearts to slow down…
