The country of Haiti is back to school after yet another extended 'grand vacation'. The government pushed the starting date from early September to October once more this year even though there was no earthquake, hurricane or volcano episode. As is the custom, SOME schools opened their doors today, October 1st. Many will wait until Monday the 7th because "school doesn't start in the middle of the week...Tuesday". Some schools will wait until the 14th. But then the 17th is a holiday, so that week might fall by the way side, too. In short, school is not a priority in Haiti.
With the start of school, I'll be back into my regular schedule of private music students and English clubs. It seems like forever since I stopped the schedule back in June.
The two young men helping to take care of me and my buildings were off to school this morning. Smiles were wide in their brand new uniforms. We read Psalm 121 and talked about the 'mountain' before them. God is our Help as we climb each day. Amen!
