The student's letters and photos in the sponsoring program were completed. Student's letters were written, translated, scanned, and sent out via email to the many sponsors. Wow. A huge undertaking that was handled beautifully. I was, and still am, impressed. I informed Liette and Yvette that I had one important thing to say about the whole thing - ' they both need to come back again next year and do likewise '. What a team! I will be hoping and praying they can return together, as a team, again.

On December 11th Jessie and Seth will be leaving to spend a month with their families. Mariah, too, will be leaving in December, probably on 16th, to spend time with her family. She will return in January to stay until school is out in June. The children are going to miss having these three around but Dana and children being here will fill the gap for ten days. Ti Luc will especially miss Mariah. They do have a lot of fun together and Mariah is a tremendous help for me with that special boy. Ti Luc can now do most things the other children do, but not all. Yesterday morning he told me he wanted to feed himself like the others do. He put a lot of effort into trying to get the spoon to his mouth. Not yet successful but proud of himself. So am I.

Thanks again to all of you for being a part of what we do here, for helping us bless people in this area, and for making a difference in the lives of the students by seeing them get an education.
