Foundry's Haitian interpreter in DC

Jean Claude, Foundry's beloved Haitian interpreter, is in DC on his first trip to the U.S.  Today he had lunch with Rev. Snyder, Rev. Hand, and other staff at Foundry, then saw many of the monuments. This evening he's having dinner with several former Haiti VIM team members. Foundry's congregants will have opportunities to meet Jean Claude this weekend at Foundry -- Saturday potluck brunch at 10 am and Sunday light lunch (and VIM team report-back) at 12:30 pm. We hope to see you there!
