We have had a great few weeks here in Haiti teaching. It has been raining a lot here but we hear most of you all are having different weather too with rain, or a warm day & the next day cold!
Teaching is going great. We have been talking about China in my first grade class. I brought some chop sticks for them so they loved trying to eat with those. I was also able to share so many things that we got on our trip to Taiwan last summer & our story of going to get Lyndlee. They loved to hear it & we also watched some of Lyndlee's Chinese videos. They thought every child on that video was Lyndlee!
Lyndlee comes to recess everyday with my class. She loves that & my students love it too! She looks so cute with her school uniform on, running around with my students!
She has been speaking a lot more lately saying please, thank you, and sorry. Her latest is to say "no way" We aren't for sure where she learned this, Brennan says I say it a lot! So she says it sometimes at not great times, you know when we are asking her to pick up her toys!
She is our joy & we are so thankful she is in our lives.
Brennan surprised us with Valentines on Friday. He went to the 7-11 here & got me chocolate & got Lyndlee a sucker. We were so surprised, I was surprised to see how much it cost but the thought was so sweet. We enjoyed a nice valentines meal with our staff, which was prepared by a group that had come in earlier that week.
Saturday was spent with a few teachers & I going to a orphanage nearby & bringing home some babies to spend the day with us. I chose a baby boy named Judah. He was precious, so quiet & wanted to be held most of the day. Lyndlee loved on him, calling him Ju Ju! It was a great day & we were sad to see him go but know we will keep visiting him & having times where he can come over. Please keep the orphanage in your prayers, they are in need of a new home to keep all the children. Right now they are using the owner's house to keep a lot of the staff & all the babies. Living space is very tight for them, their faith & trust in the Lord is very inspiring.
Better close for now, we love you all & pray you are well. Thanks for all the encouraging and uplifting words you send to us! Keep praying for us as we teach, pray for all our students & all the teachers here at Sonlight!
Janna, Brennan & Lyndlee Jya-Ying
