Paz (Peace)

This week has been rainy and cold almost every day. I think we've seen the sun like twice. Let's just say this has made the kids crazy because we couldn't go outside for recess, and no one likes that! However, we did have some fun with our indoor recess in first grade :)

Aren't they cute? Gotta love them. 

Friday we only had a half day with the students. The buses took the kids home at noon and brought all the parents (mostly mothers) back to the school. Teachers met with the parents of the kids in their grade and gave out report cards for the parents to sign. The Honduran teachers were also able to talk with the parents of some of the kids who need extra practice with their work at home or those who don't pay attention in class, so the parents know what is going on and can hopefully help out at home. 

Saturday Rhonda picked up all us Americans and we went to lunch with her and another couple who was visiting Destino from the States. In the evening we had our English teacher's Bible study with homemade pizzas and Ephesians 2, then Sunday we picnicked in the a park with other English teachers in Sigua and played some Frisbee before church.

I love verses 17-18 from Ephesians 2: "He [Jesus] came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. For through Him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit." I am so thankful that because of Jesus's sacrifice and the Holy Spirit living in me I can come before God with confidence with whatever is on my heart, and He hears my prayers and brings His perfect peace, the peace that passes all understanding. I need that peace every day, and He is gracious to give it. Even in the midst of crazy school days, screaming kids, and busy schedules, I can still find his perfect peace, and rest in His presence.
