After a few days of no internet, we are back online. I (Krischelle) am a bit backlogged on the “Day by Day” posts, though! I will be catching you up in the coming days. In the meantime, if you are on Instagram, check us out @lemuelministries. It was a bit easier to keep up the…

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….

They’re smiling so nicely for their picture. But Josiane and her crew have just spent a long day traveling to Gonaïves for supplies, only to meet with rioting and flying rocks. They hid out in a side street for a few hours before heading back to the Plateau. Two to three hours one way. Roads…

Mme Celisa is responsible for the Lemuel House kitchen. She makes lunch during the week for the admin office staff. She loves learning new recipes, and has quickly mastered quite a variety. Today, Krischelle’s mom, Jane–who is visiting for the week–showed her how to make Shepherd’s Pie with ingredients from the local market. It was…

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…

Ann sèvi fòs pa nou ak resous pa nou pou chanje kominote pa nou! Let’s use the strength and resources we have to change our community! Men continue to work in the large water hole, enlarging it by hand. When the rain falls in the mountains, it is diverted into the hole, which can hold water for many weeks for everyone’s use. Things don’t change simply…

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!

In the campus office: After the day’s work is done, Dadithe (R) and Mme Dieufort work on sewing projects… Over the summer, Dadithe–our campus manager–pulled three ladies into her staff who Lemuel may never have been able to reach otherwise. She has been investing heavily into them, and they have become a great team. They…

Sorry for another vehicle picture, but…well, we look at our vehicles a lot. The Ford water truck has its new tires, and was supposed to go for water today. Unfortunately, when Wenson was verifying the state of the vehicle, he discovered that the right, rear leaf spring was broken. This despite the fact that it…
