July was kicked off with a great team from CC Chelmsford in Mass. They were a whirlwind of activity.
Not everyone has the knowledge and the energy to do a multitude of projects, repairs and ministry in the same week. They installed screens to prevent cats from getting in the ceiling at the school. Installed a new roof vent at the school. Repaired the ceilings in the class rooms, repaired and cleaned the gutters in both the school and the feeding center. They repaired twenty chairs in the sanctuary and almost an equal number of desks at the school, and much, much more.
While Cal and Jessie were in California Elvis Jarquin and Gustavo Cruz stepped up to do the teaching on Sundays. It is a blessing to see locals being raised up to serve the Lord.
In August Bryan Randolph returned to do a dental clinic that blessed many church members and neighbors from the barrio.
In September we have the Nicaraguan Independence Day celebration. Of course the school had a re-enactment of the Battle of San Jacinto, dances and other cultural activities.
The school continues to be blessed by the Lord.
The Lord has given us good support from the Student Sponsorship program in keeping the school open but we still have a few months to go and we are praying for a few more sponsors. We want to thank those who have sponsored the children and kept the school serving the Lord and our community.
Sandra del Carmen Bermudez was baptized in September and she was so full of joy that day.
Sandra wore a special white dress to symbolize being a new creation and her bride-ship with Christ.
Lastly the school just celebrated the Bible being translated into Spanish 444 years ago with a special activity in the sanctuary.
