The US Marines stopped by to say goodbye – many have been sent home and the rest are being transferred to places with a greater need than Grand Goave. We will miss them and really appreciate all they have done to help us!!

One of the Haitian speaking Marines sat with a group of kids and gave them the ‘don’t be a fool, stay in school’ speech. The kids hung on every word!

Mackenley couldn’t keep his eyes off the Marine, even to drink his water:

He shared some family photos with them:

An organization, Terre des Hommes, has lent us 6 large tents for the kids to sleep in. They are great! Here is a picture of the younger boys new house… conveniently located by the playground:
