It's been a few busy weeks in Haiti. Beth came and helped out with administration as we prepare for the transition as I will be leaving in August and Sandra stepping in in September.
Last week. Steve and Camilla from St. Joe's University came to work with the ladies doing the gem cutting and train 3 new gem cutters, as well as teach a new cut. At the end of the week, the 3 newly trained gentlemen received certificates. They produced great pieces throughout the week and are eager to produce more.
Today, the McMurry team from Texas arrived, accompanied by my mom, Linda, and Marlis, who will be running a children's program for the week. The McMurry group will be working out the house out in Canaan as well as helping out in the clinic. We look forward to a great week together!
