The RMI Family is Growing!

We are excited to introduce you to the newest additions to our RMI family…
Joselyn 2
Joslynn Stakes - 2017-18 School Teacher

Joslynn is serving with RMI for the 2017-2018 school year where she will teach 6th-7th grades at Cite Lumiere Christian School. She taught 5th-12th grade Health and PE for 5 years at Highland Baptist Christian School in Louisiana, her native state. She has visited her sister church Petit Trou through RMI four times.  It was during these trips that God laid it on her heart to serve in Haiti as a teacher.

Janae 1Janae Stork - 2017-18 School Teacher

Janae has been living in Les Cayes since March 2015 and spends her summers with her family in Illinois. She plans to move up to high school with her students at Cite Lumiere Christian School (CLCS) this coming 2017-18 school year. She has previously taught language arts in 2nd and 7th grades in 2015-16 school year. Janae also taught 5th and 6th grade language arts for half of the school year while being the main 8th grade teacher during the 2016-17 school year at CLCS.  She is looking forward to spending time in the Sister Church communities as her school schedule allows and joining teams on weekends when they are near the Les Cayes area.

They join another RMI teacher…
Courtney 1Courtney Westcott - 2017-18 School Teacher
Courtney is a native of New Jersey, and has previously served in Les Cayes, Haiti during the 2014-15 school year where she taught First Grade at the Cite Lumiere Christian School.  She is looking forward to returning to Haiti for the 2017-18 school year where she will teach her former students as they transition to Third Grade.  Courtney also accompanies teams out to their Sister Churches when possible.

Josylnn succinctly explains the importance of school teachers in the lives of missionaries.  She shared, “On my first visit to Haiti where I learned of Cite Lumiere Christian School and its importance to RMI, I thought of Aaron holding up Moses’ arms during a battle and how he was critical to the victory even though he was a background player.”  It’s a great analogy.  These gals’ ministries directly affect the Rob Thompson and Lee Nunemaker families as well as several other missionary families.

They are currently raising their support and are asking for your prayers as they need their funds to come in quickly since they need to be in Haiti to start classes at the end of August!  You can donate to their support HERE.
