It’s a bittersweet day for the Espwa family - our Assistant Guesthouse Manager, Kens, left for the United States yesterday! He is off to immerse himself in his education in South Carolina, where he will be attending university.

Kens is incredibly bright and has been a warm and welcoming face to everyone. On Sunday we had a little party for him in the Guesthouse with cake and friends.

We will miss him dearly, but we are excited to see what his future holds! Bon chans, Kens!

Update: August 3rd. Have had the chance to speak with Kens several times since his arrival in the states and am happy to report that he is doing very well. Thanks for all your prayers and support. The folks in Greenville, S.C. are truly exemplary in their hospitality. Just amazing!

Bon Vakans (“Bon Vahkans”)

Bon Vakans (“Bon Vahkans”):

As older students finish up their exams this week, they may be wishing each other a “happy summer” by saying bon vakans! It’s the season of pick-up soccer games, jump-roping, and attempting to stay cool in the hot Haitian heat. As summer officially kicks off this Fourth of July weekend, maybe you can wish your friends a bon vakans too!
