WHAT'S GOING ON...
Confirmation Preparation: Our Haitian missionaries who live at our base are on a roll with jumping into ministry. Reginal hosted OneEight Confirmation Class last week and this week Mirey shared a testimony about how last year she wasn’t really looking forward to Confirmation preparation and that she ended up loving it so much that she would go through the whole thing again!
Formation: This week in our Bible formation, Amanda & Sara led us in praying and share on the word “Fast.”
Lenten Mission: The Co-cathedral of our diocese is having a 40 day Lenten mission, with a speaker and praise & worship every night of Lent. This past Wednesday, Amy, Danley, and Sara joined Fr. Louis and Marc Arthur.
Coffee: We had 5 local women here this week to make coffee that will hopefully be sold at the Life Teen Men’s & Women’s retreats.
Stations of the Cross: Sara went to St. Charles “Stations of the Cross” last week.
Visiting Groups: A group from Franciscan University just joined us on mission for the week. There are a few other friends and past summer missionaries (in America & Haiti) joining the group: Meagan Bradford, Ricky Vasquez, Tim Tylec, Melissa Larsen, and Austin O'Connor.
Glory Story: We had a training for every community member to learn to be an altar server, to lead morning prayer, and to set up for mass. Some of the Haitian community members had been resistant to doing this for a long time now, but they seem to be enjoying being more involved in our prayer life.

Life Teen Missions has been in Haiti since October of 2012. We were extended an invitation by Bishop Dumas of the Diocese of Aun-se-vou and Miragoine to be a part of the New Evangelization in Haiti specifically with the youth. We currently serve the teens in our area through Bible Studies, Life Nights, XLT's, and one-on-one discipleship. We enjoy visiting our teens homes to bring the Gospel to their families and inviting them to return to church. Currently there are 10 full time Life Teen Missionaries serving in Haiti, including the smallest and best missionaries, Nathaniel and Therese Albert. We feel very blessed to be in Haiti serving the youth who are so hungry to know Christ.

Pray for all the missionaries as they enter a time of rest and retreat. Thank for such a blessed summer and we can't wait for the fall!
