Hello everyone! We have had good last few months here in Haiti & we pray you are all doing well. I love my little first graders & cherish the funny & serious times with them. One of my students recently wrote a love note to another student. I didn't even know that 6 & 7 year olds could write love notes! They bring me such joy.
Lyndlee is changing a lot each day, she is becoming such a big girl & quite the praying girl. Some nights when we forget to say prayer, she puts everything down, folds her hands & waits for us to pray. She is a constant reminder of the Lord working in our lives. And we can't believe she will be turning 2 in less than a month.
For those of you who don't know, these next summer months will be bringing about some changes in our life. After much prayer, we will not be returning to Haiti in August. We love the ministry here, love & cherish our friends & students but feel God leading us elsewhere. We have appreciated all your love, prayers & support while we have been ministering/teaching. We feel so blessed to be apart of the ministry here in Haiti & we thank God He brought us here & let us be apart of His work.
Cap-Haitien is where we just got back from! Mr. Jonny, Miss Emily & our family all took a few days off during our spring break & traveled to Cap-Haitien. We stayed at this hotel that was gorgeous. We got to travel & do some amazing sight seeing. It was such a fun time with our friends, such a great time of seeing more of beautiful Haiti.
This week continues our spring break & also breakout. Breakout is a conference for our high schoolers. The teachers speak on different workshops, lead music, and games.
Please keep this in your prayers, that the students' hearts can be open & ready to listen to God.
This month of April marks a special time for our family. It has been exactly a year since we went on the waiting list for a second adoption through The Home of God's Love in Taiwan. Now many of you know, we have no idea when we will get the call, we just know to wait & keep praying. We cannot wait to see how God will bless our family again with another precious Chinese baby! So please keep that in your prayers as well.
Continue to pray for all the teachers & students at Sonlight.
God Bless you all!
Brennan, Janna & Lyndlee Jya-Ying
