As we get closer and closer to the end of another school year, I just wanted to share a few updates and things to be praying for as we enter into summer.
The big event coming up is our Colegio Missions Day next Thursday. On this day, our middle school classes (7th-9th) will each present about one country's culture and religion, and how they would share the Gospel with a person there, and we will all pray for these countries. My class (9th grade) will begin preparing on Monday, and the other classes have already begun some of there work, so please pray for these students as they learn about these other countries and the problems the people there face (Ethiopia, France, and Syria).
After Missions Day I will only have a week and a half left here since I am leaving early for my brother's wedding. There is lots to be done here in the time I have left, but I am also looking forward to going back to the States to celebrate with my family (and another two friends who are getting married in June. Wedding central over here!) So please pray for my return trip and a summer spent at home with family and friends, and opportunities to share about what God is doing!
But would you also pray for my students this summer? Summers can be a hard time of temptations with not being occupied in school everyday and being out from under the watchful eye of their teachers. And I have many students who will be facing the difficult decisions of what to do with their lives. Our first class of 11th graders will be graduating this summer, and the University at Destino will hopefully be opening in January. But this leaves seven months for these students to lose their motivation for school, or decide they would rather just get a basic job and work. Please pray for all the students to stay focused and motivated over the summer and come back (in September for the school, January for the University) with renewed purpose.
Thanks to all who are praying for me. I will have other updates to share when I am home. [insert suspenseful pause] :)
God bless you all, especially the mothers today!
