Lee Petersen, June 2019
The end of the spring term for Branch Schools is in mid-June. What tremendous blessings God has showered on Branch Schools this school year! Enrollment at the three schools was 654 children - about 100 orphans and more than 500 children from the surrounding neighborhoods. Despite an October earthquake and ongoing unrest that caused the schools to close on occasion and drove up food and fuel costs, the schools flourished. God willing, the 2019-2020 school year will be even more successful.
The directors and teachers celebrated the end of the term with a closing worship service led by Pastor Rona. He traveled from his home near Cap-Haitien in northern Haiti to near Port-au-Prince, to the orphanage and school run by Yvette. In the first photo, Pastor Rona is leading the service. The second photograph shows the teachers after the service.
Thank you, friends, for your faithful love, concern, and support for these children. Please join us to pray:
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank you for your blessings on Branch Schools for the 2018-2019 school year in which Pastor Rona, the superintendent, directors and teachers shared the Gospel message of salvation earned by your son Jesus. We humbly ask for your continued blessing on the schools. Keep all safe over the summer and bring them once again to the schools for the fall term.
In Jesus precious name we pray,
Branch Lutheran Schools of Haiti, Inc.
