Jubilee School of Discipleship Team
Alex Hammontree, Jubilee School of Discipleship
My name is Alexandria Hammontree, and I am from a small town in East, Tx. I’ve been living In Haiti since January of 2016. I live and work in the community of Jubilee. A big part of what I do is just being apart of the community day in, & day out! My friends are here! In the last year God has opened doors for me to build & develop the Jubilee School of Discipleship. A 16 week program with 8 weeks of lecture and 8 weeks of hands-on prayer and outreach. The program is designed to challenge, discipline, and help each student come into the call the Lord has on their life! .
I am blessed to be apart of this community, & do life with these beautiful people!
Hello, I am Aaron and I was born in 1992 in South Germany. I grew up with stories of Haiti; my father went and worked there as a carpenter in the 90s. Already when I was 16 I knew God wanted me in Haiti but it took me 5 more years to get there well now since then I'm stuck, in the good way. I love every bit and piece about living in Haiti. After one year in an orphanage and another year on myself doing little youth groups in different parts of Gonaives I wanted to do things in a more professional way, true longterm change! I went home to Germany and started preparing to work in discipleship and training program in Haiti which is now where I am at now.
Hi, my name is Keaton Patterson, and I am from Brunswick, GA. I am a recent high school graduate, and will be moving to Haiti in July 2018. I have always loved missions, local and foreign, and have felt a call on my life. I have been to Haiti several times on short term mission trips. I’ll be working with Emory Wilson in the Port Salut area for part of my time in Haiti, and also assisting Alex Hammontree in the Jubilee School of Discipleship. I am excited about what God is doing in Jubilee, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to be a small part of it over the next year.

Laura (@laurahagy) is a patient advocate! She works hard to connect our patients with resources they need, which looks different every day. She runs our Malnutrition program, giving fortified peanut butter to children below target weight, and also runs the Infant Formula program for babies who have lost their mama, or whose mama has HIV. Laura provides education for the families in both of these programs, as well as working with any special cases to connect patients with treatment if they need to go elsewhere. She is incredibly compassionate, and we are so thankful for her support!

Jubilee School Staff
Laura Lynn Nichols (LaLa), Jubilee School
Hello everybody! My name is LauraLynn Nichols. I am the school administrator here at Academie La Saline. I have been here since the first year the school was opened back in 2010. I am from Jesup, Georgia. I terribly miss my parents and my sister Casey and brother Shelby while I am here, but I know this is where God has called me.
Due to a terrible home situation and severe malnutrition, the commissioner of Gonaives asked me to take custody of a little boy name Youvendjy. Now my son is in first grade and nearly as sassy as I am. He brings a light to my life that I hadn’t known before. We are forever working on paperwork to get him home to the states to visit his grandparents and his proud aunt and uncle. He is learning lots of English in school and at home. I love the opportunity God has given me to live and work in Haiti. I pour my heart and soul into this school because I believe education is the way to break the chains of slavery.
