Lancaster Bible College 2016

March 10th, 2016

LBC 2016

Lancaster Bible College has come to us with a work team again this March.  These people KNOW how to work!  In fact, they worked so much during the past five rainy days, they earned an extra half day of sight seeing.  This morning, (Thursday 10 March) they are off to see El Yunque and then Old San Juan for the afternoon.  Tomorrow, we are all going to the beach for some fun and playing together. Saturday evening they leave – so we are not sure of the Saturday plans.  Probably a little more sleep and then some cleaning of their dorms.

It’s been a good week with them – seeing the Bible stories they have presented in clever and entertaining ways, learning more of those characters presented – Joseph, Ruth, Samuel – to name a few.

Several of the girls served as substitute teacher for Betsy who was out with a cold a few days.  Most have been working on grounds work, painting, scraping, cleaning, and generally helping in a variety in places. We are excited to see God work in their lives and in our lives as we spend time together.

Thanks for your prayers.

Tonys Group 2014

Pictured above is a group of young men and women from Hanover PA who came to serve with us November 2 – 8. Having them was a blessing as they came with three teachers who were able to substitute for Betsy so that she was able to attend a conference for educators of the Deaf.

In addition to cleaning, they painted a dorm room, scraped ceilings and enjoyed several inches of rain. The team was predominantly teens and their leaders were ever present faithful servants during the week.   It was a joy to get to know them and to see how God used them in the lives of our staff and students.

Our next work team is not scheduled until March 2015. There will be lots for them to do!
