Dear Friends and Family,
We have been very busy so far this week.
Our days begin when the sun comes up, about 6. First we hear the sheep and then the birds. (Roosters on and off all night). Coffee at 6:30, breakfast at 7. Daily devotionals at 7:20 and the girls work for an hour and a half beginning at 7:30. Showers and clean up at 9 and classes begin at 9:30.
The new class of 18 young women is getting into the swing of things with 4 English classes each day. They are benefiting (I hope) from hearing 3 distinct English accents; American, Australian, and English with a slight French accent. First test is Friday.
Dan’s eight third-year business students are showing some level of anxiety about accounting class and he is trying to find ways to keep them interested and awake in class.
The sewing/craft room opened last Saturday with 18 students making hair accessories. They had such fun and will be introduced to sewing this Saturday as we attempt to make 18 travel pillows. Dan is on call for all sewing machine repairs.
We had a lovely surprise visit from TLC graduate Roxana at lunch today. She is continuing her smoothie/snack shop business at orphanage Emmanuel where she grew up. Roxana is saving money to hopefully attend nursing school someday.
Nice break from the rain today.
Looking forward to a visit Saturday from friends Jose Rivera, Bill Goodman and Jim Wilson.
Headed to Wednesday night bible study now. We feel blessed to be here and thank you for all your prayers and loving support of this ministry.
Dan and Chris
