Ok, this is back in August before QCS started this school year. We still lived on campus in our apartment at QCS. Over the summer we often visited the Bresma orphanage children or brought some of them to our home & the campus to play & eat. Two of them in particular (Stanley & Kenkins) stayed with us all summer long! We also had a few Movie nights when we had EDH & brought a group or 2 of the Bresma kids to watch & have dinner & popcorn.

The next main event we failed to post earlier was our journey moving off campus. To make a long & confusing story of events short, I can tell you that finding a home to rent, negotiating, getting it in fairly livable condition (that is with some sort of working electricity & some sort of water to the place) & actually moving into it & making it into a home is a totally different experience than in the states…& Sean & I had plenty of experience buying & selling homes & moving multiple times, even throughout multiple states…but this was not an easy task by any means. Fair enough though, we had been warned by many fellow veteran missionaries whom have lived for some time off of any sort of compound or complex in this third world country of Haiti…so we were prepared right??? Not. But now all is well & we feel very fortunate to have a “home of our own” here.

Another major thing was the first day of classes at Quisqueya Chrsitian School for the 2009-2010 school year!
