I waited until I arrived in Puerto Rico to write a new post. Since my last post, I went to camp with one junior age girl and two of our teen girls. The camp we attended had its own staff and counselors, so I was able to let the junior age girl be involved with her camp mates and the activities. I was then able to spend some time with the two teen girls. It was a blessing to talk with them and know that they want to serve God. Both come from difficult home situations, so please pray for them that they can overcome what is in the past and follow God's leading in their futures.
I flew to Puerto Rico yesterday and hit the ground running by playing the offertory last night. Today, I will probably do a little shopping, and then start working in my classroom. Please pray as that lives will be changed this year.
The school finally got the approval to start working on the fellowship hall/lunchroom that was destroyed during the hurricane. The building and labor together is going to cost $56,000. If you would like to help with this project, you can let me know by e-mail email@example.com, and I will tell you where to send them. Right now, the kids are crowding into a tiny house on the property for lunch and Bible class, so this building is important.
My friends in Nepal sent a new update. Please pray as they continue working to build a larger school and children's home facility. They went from 30 something students to 51 this year, so they desperately need the new building. If you would like to help them, please e-mail (above) me, and I will tell you how to send money to them.
I should be updating every week from now on.
Please continue to pray for my sister Janna and her tumor, my aunt Lydia who is extremely ill, my mom's back, and Anchor Baptist church.
