Nov 30 We have arrived in Haiti. Bessie with Tony and Myrtha at their home.
We had a wonderful flight into Haiti. All the suitcases are here. Tony and Myrtha are doing a brunch and then we will go to Jeanton to see the preschool building.
Tony, Bessie and Barry visited Jeanton School. It was Saturday afternoon and very hot. But more than 100 preschool age children came to show off their classrooms to us! Here are the preschool children singing to Bessie. They came to the school on Saturday afternoon to show off their school classrooms. Thanks to the donor who provided the preschool classrooms in Jeanton! http://youtu.be/gxYy9koJOnU

An estimated 500 people joined the celebration and dedication. — with Bessie Dewerff and Antonio Boursiquot in purple, Star of Hope's project manager in Haiti and for this project as well.
