Event Tomorrow: Brigade March

Tomorrow the Brigade program will march through the streets of Chambrun after the conclusion of NVM’s church service.  For those who don’t know, Brigade is an after-school program for students above the age of seven who seek to grow in areas such as discipline, leadership, and spiritual maturity.  It is for both boys and girls and is led by staff-member Clerice Attis.

Essentially, Brigade seeks to empower the future generation of Haitians

While they usually meet once a week, Brigade came and prepared for the march each school day of last week.  Then, last night, 6 June, they held their final preparation session by engaging in a time of spiritual development.  This included prayer, worship, confessional time, practice of the march procession, and, of course, free time and fun games!
