From our seats, we can feel like we are in a boot camp tent. Well, our chapel has a.c. and we are using it these days as the weather has been toasty.
Mornings we begin with songs and sharing stories – working on conversational skills in ASL as well as Bible skills such as knowing where the books are located and how to find them. We are still reading through Andrew Murray’s Ministry of Intercession plan. We are all learning some new words from an older version of English and some new concepts that we would not normally pray about. All part of Bible Book Camp – learning to be more discerning and wise in our prayer lives.
After chapel while the room is still cool, we often stop by the bell tables. Already working on Christmas music. Already have one scheduled Christmas recital.
Christmas is just around the corner and while we are not in a hurry to get there, we are wishing for the cooler weather that comes with the shift into autumn and winter.
Our photos are not allowing a complete picture of our lives right now.
We have Natalia missing – 5 years old and sweet as can be. Pray for her as she anticipates a baby in the house around Christmas time.
Salem, we have not yet seen this semester. Her parents are working on a timetable and we are praying that they are able to join us and she joins our preschool to learn some more ASL.
Pray for Mizael and Henry as they grow from boys into men. This is a tough time of life for everyone. Trying to comply with school and trying out their adult brains at the same time.
Pray for all of us!
In August we celebrated Amber’s birthday. Always fun.
We have been studying MOLECULES in science class which led to creating crystals. So far, not much to report but we will keep trying!
THANKS also to those who send a lunch bonus! While we try to spend frugally, once in a while, we have PIZZA from a place nearby. This week, we welcomed Dave and Annette Markle to the ministry. Today we asked them to stop by Pizza Hut and bring us lunch! Maybe next week we can order fresh lobster – Perhaps Dave can find some while snorkeling.
In all August was a great month. Looking forward to the blessings coming in September.
PRAY – for our students – they are being challenged to be young MEN. One recently asked, “How can I pray better?” Oh that they would continue to have a desire to learn.
