My dreams are coming true, I'm realizing my passions, and believing in all of my potential. My program, "Learn English with Alyssa," aka the main reason I came to Haiti, was a success. Thanks to all of you who supported me throughout this journey!
Check out my December Newsletter, capturing the essence of Learn English with Alyssa and the beauty of teaching in another culture.
The holiday season to me is a time of love and giving. Although we should give at all times of the year, we feel a little more festive and loving around the holidays. As my time here in Haiti is coming to an end, I just wanted to take the time to share my customs to tell all of my new friends and family that they are appreciated. I am smiling ear to ear for all the things the holiday season has to offer. Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones! <3

This month, my focus has been on the mountains of Bouvier and how they have done so much to change me. As I traveled back up the mountains this month, I wanted to highlight one of LIFLIM's and Frontier Projects' most special initiatives.
Check out my October Newsletter and watch how I say thanks to the mountains for changing my life!
I'm going to start today's story quite simply; I shared tea with a friend. That's it. The tea may have changed her life forever and I could not be more convinced that divine intervention is real.
I have been in Cavaillon for almost a week now with no electricity or running power. Once a day, if I have the chance, I give my phone to Total and let him charge it, but it is dead for most of the day and I don’t think I mind too much. Here, I feel relaxed. Yes, I hate the mosquitoes and I constantly feel like I need to shower, but the reality here is so simple. Life is so simple. I spend hours on the river, swimming and floating. I just let the water take over and let it consume me. I know it will never hurt me. I trust the river, in the same manner that I trust the ocean. I am one with waves and I feel most happy within them, moving slowly; sun hitting my face. It is the most calming and relaxing time to be alone in the river with my thoughts. With a brain like mine that moves 100 miles per second, I need time to be at ease, and the water provides that for me. My thoughts slow down and become more clear. I understand my place in the universe and it is easier to talk to God this way. It’s just myself and Him, together.
I’ve been skipping out about writing about very significant differences. I feel like once you say something once, there’s no reason to repeat yourself, but I think I need to.
