JUDE...another ASAPH leader.
Jude is ASAPH's very capable soccer coach. It's true he helped lead the team to 2 championships out of three 3 so far. But, the greatest successes are off the field. Jude is helping young people to grow up better!
Jude continues to work with the team. They play soccer often in the afternoons. When P.L.L. sprained or lightly broke his ankle playing soccer, Jude was there. With WEC, they made arrangements for P.L.L. to visit a hospital. It ended up being a few trips, but in the end his foot was in a cast. Jude is always a great contributor when 'his players' are in trouble. He is there.
Jude is teaching. Last year or so, he set up a coconut branch shelter next to his mom's house so that he could teach in the afternoons. (Kind of following my model...building a place where I can teach without being part of any institution.) He does academic lessons for kids not doing well in school, and helps motivate kids who are doing okay. Jude is (when Haiti allows) attending university...studying to be a teacher. Some people will be teachers when they get a degree. Jude IS a teacher.
Jude is also planting. He recognized the need for people all over Haiti to live better off of the land God put under their feet.
