Masson's Summer Program
// Rachel DeTellis
Even in Haiti, summer is a time for students to have a more relaxed schedule—to cool off in a stream or the ocean, and play with friends.
We also know kids can become bored and get into mischief after a while if they don’t have much to do. Pastor Richard Gay from our Masson campus recognized the benefit of providing a structured time for part of the summer. Since 2010, he has led a summer program during the months of July and August at his school. This year, there were 150 students participating. They arrived at 8:00 a.m. and left at noon.
His desire is to help the students academically, but he also wants them to have a fun experience. Each day they had a devotional, sang songs, prayed, and then the teachers taught the students French, Spanish, and math. They also had a session of games and sports. The reports from both students and parents were very positive. We thank God for Pastor Richard’s vision and hard work. He has served with New Missions since October 1990, and glory to God he is continuing on strong! ~Rachel DeTellis
