Students from our graduating class of 2005 recently gathered for a class reunion. “Most of us were raised in a miserably poor family,” said Roland Henry—now a school teacher in Haiti. “If it was not for New Missions, I ask what kind of people would we have become? It’s truly a grace from God! I cannot find a word to express the love I have for my graduating class.”

On a Thursday afternoon, they returned to the high school chapel where they had graduated from 10 years prior. The focus was: What’s happened since 2005? Reflecting back, they remembered fellow classmate, Durvil, who died during the earthquake in Haiti. “We miss him so much. I want you to stand to have a minute of silence in Durvil’s name,” stated Nerylne Movil. Their silence shouted how much they missed him.

From an architect to teachers, photographer, nurse and a pastor—the jobs these graduates found varied. They represent a new generation of Christian leaders.
