Eveline came out of Haiti with Jose in January. She has been absolutely AMAZING! I don’t know what we would have done without her these last few weeks. We had talked to her school before she left about her being gone for so long. They told us she could go but in June she will have the big government test. If she doesn’t pass then they won’t let her continue in school. She still has 3 years left. She felt like she could study here. We’ve been blessed to have Rolgard come and tutor her each week but it’s not the same as going everyday to school.
With Gigi’s mom being here now – it makes it much easier for her to go back. She didn’t want to disappoint us by leaving early but she knows if she doesn’t pass that she’ll lose the whole year and she is already 18 years old. I’m so glad she was able to share her worries with us. I would never want to jeopardize anyone’s education for babysitting!
We called Erika and Andy Olsen and they are going to take Eveline back to Haiti with them next week. God is good and has worked everything out. His timing is perfect. We have an extra set of hands to step into Eveline’s place and good friends to take her back to Haiti this week.
I have to tell you she was really precious this morning. When I talked to her about going back to Haiti she said she wanted to take Gabriel back with her. She said she didn’t think she should leave without him!! 🙂 I told her he would be fine. She got teary-eyed and said she’d really miss him. There is a lot of things I don’t know – but one thing that I DO know beyond a shadow of a doubt…….Eveline really loves our little boy. She will be dearly missed. Please pray for her during her travels back and that she’ll be able to quickly catch up with the other students in her class.
