Celebrating Flag Day in Gonaives under the statue of Dessalines.



Hope you have enjoyed the last couple of sunny days. This has been such a cold spring.

We wanted to share with you the children's celebration of Flag Day in Haiti. Flag day is a holiday in Haiti and very celebrated. The children dressed in the colors of the Haitian flag and were each given a small Haitian flag. Then the children traveled to the Plaza in Gonaives and visited the statue of Dessalines. Afterwards they had a celebratory meal in the Children's Village. Celebrations like this really lift the spirits of the children and staff.

We just finished our yearly evaluation by IBESR (Haiti's social services) and we again received the highest rating possible for an orphanage. Thank you so much for partnering with us in taking care of the children, we really appreciate both your financial support and especially your prayers. 

Blessings, Chris and Mike
