School Daze

The rain has stopped, so today Camille will visit the school again. (There's no school if it rains, since the kids all walk to get there.) The picture below is the morning group (some go in the morning, some in the afternoon) just before they walked to school Monday. They always have a circle prayer before starting the school day. I just love that. One of the children leads the prayer, and the others repeat after him/her.

Some doors are opening at the school that we'd love to have your prayer over. The director would like for me (Christie) to teach English classes to the elementary grades (up to grade 6) this year. He also spoke to Dan about the need for the seven schools in his district to have a religion class. It seems this is a new school requirement, and he asked Dan if Paraguay Missions could handle this. SURE! In the same conversation, the director asked if we had any youth functions happening on the campground, because the students need a place to "hang out" on the weekends. What an opportunity!

I'll be walking Camille to school when she goes this afternoon, to talk to the teachers about Project: Puente. Thank you to those of you who have already contacted us about being a part of this. There's excitement on this end, so let's see what God will do!


  1. Sounds like some great opportunities! Can't wait to hear more about it

  2. How exciting!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to be there and help! :)

  3. Wow, sounds like God is really opening doors for you to make an impact through education. That's HUGE!!! Gracias a Dios.
