A Birthday, A Salon, and A Visit

May 25, 2017

Good morning,

Today is Joseph Rahm’s birthday and the ladies sang a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday in English and Spanish this morning at devotionals. Joseph must be very careful today, one birthday tradition involves cracking an egg over the head of the person celebrating for good luck.

Community Service

Each quarter the student body of TLC performs a community service project either in one of the students home communities or locally. Past projects have included a water purification system, a recycling center and seminars on community organization.

This quarter the students decided to honor the women in the neighboring community of Los Valles with a day of pampering. The Salon (our largest room) was decorated and prepared with various stations for hair dressing, manicures, foot washing, pedicures and massages. Childcare was provided. Refreshments were served. About 50 women attended with about 60 children and the event was a great success.

Congratulations ladies of TLC for a job well done.

Heart to Heart Visit

Also, last Saturday, we had a visit from friends Oscar and Amy Serrano and Mary and Lyle Frenter of Heart to Heart Ministries. They came to visit Sarah who is now a first-year student at TLC. They are looking forward to the upcoming visit from a team of Trinity UMC to the Children’s Village in June.

 

Classes

Classes continue. We are in week 5 and the English students now have a basic vocabulary to draw from. They can tell you what they do for fun, what time it is and are writing a small story about their families. They are such a joy.

 

Thanks to all for your support of this ministry.

With love from TLC,

 

Chris Moore
