Nazareth House Kabala School in session today, Closed Tomorrow in memory and respect of Fr. Robert M. Haux

Today the students at Nazareth House Apostolate School in Kabala, Sierra Leone will attend school as usual
They will make the long walk up the steep hill, through the morning mist to their beloved school. A school made possible through generous hearts who made their education a such heart will be buried tomorrow, but cherished in memory with love forever.

As Pa Foday rings the bell, the students rush to enter the building, a school building that a little over a year ago was only a dream.

As the desks and benches fill up...

...the straggling students arrive and another school day begins. Thanks to you, education is a HUGE reality in Kabala...

(note: all students now have uniforms completed and are in use, these pictures were taken a few weeks back)

Back in the capital city of Sierra Leone, Freetown. More and more lives that have been touched by Fr. Bob's love assemble with signs to pay their respects. Pa Sorie and Sanu (manager of the internet cafe) at the Internet cafe that James uses most to bring updates and news to us in America.
