Hello everyone! The last couple of weeks have been good but busy! My parents returned home well, thanks be to God, and my second weekend of serving at All Saints' Church in Belize City also went well despite a couple of dicey moments on the streets. But I digress.
Over the last week we have been enjoying the visit of a team from Mosaic Anglican Fellowship in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Tuesday they put on a graduation retreat for our exiting Standard 6 class at St. Andrew's school, and Thursday and Friday they did the same for the Standard 6 classes of St. Barnabas' and St. Hilda's schools. We were incredibly blessed to have them with us, not only for the benefit of our graduates, but for the strong relationships they built with our six older youth who helped lead the retreats with them. Please pray that God would use the many seeds planted this week to grow his Kingdom and increase his glory.
Please, please please keep in your prayers the start of our youth group Bible Study. We're planning on holding it every Tuesday evening at 5:30 PM at the home of one of the youth. I think that this will be a major step forward for discipleship with our youth, so please pray that God will empower us to lead and draw many to come and participate!
This is our last week of classes for our three schools here, and we hold graduation ceremonies on Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. We are so tremendously proud of our students and wish them all the best as they continue on to high school or other vocations. Saturday another team from Trinity Anglican Church in Thomasville, Georgia arrives to offer a Vacation Bible School to our children in Georgeville next week. Please pray for us as we prepare for their arrival and coordinate for the VBS and other activities with which they will be involved!
In other news, my computer has been diagnosed and has experienced a "catastrophic hard drive failure." As I type, it is on its way back to the United States for repair: hopefully the Macbook Pro is still under the extended 3 year warranty (worth every penny, if you ask me). Please pray for safe passage, inexpensive repair, and swift return to Belize!
