In the 8th week of VBS at Mission of Hope we have as many kids as ever and are still having so much fun! I finally remembered to take my camera and grab some pics on Monday! The morning starts out with chapel, songs, and games in the church with all of the kids. They are then split up into 4 rotating stations... crafts, community health, Bible story, and sports. The day ends with everyone eating in the cafeteria of the school.
Yesterday, I got to load in a van with 5 kids who got the best scores in school this past year (Mackenlove, Widler, Miseline, Marielaine, and Marie Jeanne) and 3 who got the highest points for the last month (Nacheline, Christella A., and Cassanlove). We headed to the resort for a full day of swimming, snorkeling, yummy Haitian food, and smiling... a lot!
This summer has been so great! I owe a lot of the fun I have had to all the ladies I have gotten to live in community with this summer! I feel so blessed to know each of them! I want to introduce you and I'll start with my 2 roommates!
Brianna: here is a pic of us at the Sugar Cane Museum! Brianna is the new head of 3Cords and is hilarious when she's dehydrated!
Cassie: She is our amazing architect that is currently working on more projects than I can remember! She also owns the coolest hat on campus!
And now for the Hope Village Gangstaz!
Kara-Lynn: I pretty much still consider her a roommate and LOVE her heart for her work with all the kids here! She is an art therapist that came for 6 months to work with the orphanage. Bup Bup!!! (there is a large hole in my life without her here.)
Rachel: We are pretty much the same person (minus the whole blond/brunette thing). She is the Associate Director at the Village of Hope orphanage and she flew to Florida with me to see Harry Potter!
Last, but not least, my BEEFS!
Bailey: (aka B) She is more passionate about teaching than anyone else I know and... she can do the Jerk! (I miss her more than she knows!)
Courtney: C is the hardest worker on campus and runs all mission teams that come through MOH! She is Ellison's bestie and we both agree that UF is the worst!
