It has been a couple weeks since I updated for the summer… but here ya go =)
Since the end of May I received a couple Moody ESL interns. They are doing their Camino Global summer internship for school credit. They are required to teach tons and tons of English. The last two weeks we have been working hard to push through and get hours done.
They are teaching in a local junior high right in front of my house in the mornings and are LOVING it! They come home every day with great stories! Please pray for them as they have the unique opportunity to share the Love of God with hundreds of junior high students! They are also teaching two nights a week at the community center in Palmas and the orphanage.
This last week Rod had a group from Mount Calvary. Every time we have a group we get to do things we can’t do on our own… and love every minute. I was sad that I couldn’t spend more time with this fabulous group but treasured time spent with them and the conversations that were had.
A highlight of the week were the number of wheelchairs and hearing aids we were able to hand out! I never get tired of seeing the faces of the recipients and their loved ones when they get the gift of mobility or a little freedom from whatever handicap they deal with daily. Of course, they also hear the Gospel and how God is the one that can heal you spiritually which will impact your eternity.
We also had yet another soccer tournament last weekend. Maybe the last one in Palmas because of new rules and regulations that have been put into place that make it hard for us (Christians) to do what we want. However, fun was had by all AND Jonathan told the short version of his testimony of being in jail and what God did through that.
This next week will be tons more english hours before a two week group from Indiana gets here. That group is going to spend a ton of time at the orphanage, teaching classes, seeing the sites and sounds of mexico city, eating tacos and seeing where I will be moving to in August! I am excited for this wonderful group to come on down.
You can pray for us as we continue to have a busy summer and look forward to what God has in store!
