We were blessed with the opportunity to visit a local Christian deaf/handicapped school this week. Our main purpose, was to find out more information about the school, then distribute Christmas gift bags (similar to the shoebox projects). The school is located down the road from our home, in the village of Simone. As we toured the school, Madame Lukner shared the story of how the Lord inspired and gave her the vision of the deaf school. The school consists of 3 classrooms, and 3 bunk rooms. The bunk rooms are for the children that don’t have family or that live too far away to commute daily. This school provides a safe, Christian environment for kids who would otherwise might be uneducated, social outcasts in Haitian society. We enjoyed visiting the school, but really felt an all-too-familiar communication gap, that we hadn’t felt for awhile. (This time it wasn’t because we didn’t know Kreyol, but because we don’t know sign language.) Thankfully, knowing sign language was not necessary to see how excited and thankful the children were to receive the gifts. They shared their love and thanks though their expressions and hugs.
