  1. I love it! Tell Jocelyn and Pierre they did a great job and I miss them a lot! I will work on my flashcards tonight and be ready for next week’s lesson. What a great idea 🙂

  2. I love this!!!!! Great job Jocelyn!! I will look forward to my lessons each week so when I go back to Haiti next year I can communicate better!!

  3. Hi Jocelyn and Pierre
    Thanks so much for the Creole lesson. Pierre, it was great to see you on the video. How I miss Haiti and I can hardly wait to come back. I was part of the Canada team that came to NWHCM back in May of this year. I hope to return to Haiti with my family in August, 2011 and I would love to come to see you in de Mole. Until then we will faithfully study creole each week with you!
    Sister in Christ,
    Elaine Peters

  4. Wait – I know that student! He does not belong there.
    Great job guys and Leigh and I miss you and really want to be back there! Sorry I did not get to say good bye as I jumped on the luggage truck and did not realize that I would not get to say bye for now.
    We will keep watching and learn more Creole!
    How is the cistren going?
