Dear Friends and Family,
We understand that many of you are experiencing very cold temperatures. Looking at sunny skies and feeling warm breezes makes us so glad to be at The Leadership Center.
Student and Faculty Visitors from Lafayette College arrived last Tuesday. They have been hard at work providing seminars, cooking meals, performing morning chores and tutoring all our students. Our lives are enriched by their activities and friendships are forming. They are giving of themselves and being blessed by our students in return.
Today they are off campus exploring nearby Comayagua.
Our weekly activities continue: teaching class, tutoring, bible studies, reading group and sewing. Accounting class and Entrepreneurship is well underway for Dan. It is a challenge for students and the teacher alike. We hope they are learning the valuable life lessons of the entrepreneurial mindset.
First year students will analyze Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man at the Bridge tonight at reading group. Tea and cupcakes are a part of the attraction.
Four second-year students will take an SAT-like exam in March and I am trying to assist with an extensive Algebra and Geometry review. It has been awhile….
I am also undertaking the painting of the fence surrounding Bloom Park. I am hoping for a Tom Sawyer-effect. Only a few takers so far.
We are also lucky to have ever-so-handyman Jeff Hayes with us for a few weeks. Many are asking for repairs and new projects, so he is a very busy man on campus.
On Thursday we will receive the first of three groups of 18 applicants for their interviews. It is wonderful to have so many interested prospective students. Selected students will begin at TLC in April. This will be Cohort 10, surely a milestone.
We are in need of a liberal arts teacher beginning in April and appreciate all our friends and family keeping their eyes and ears open for possible candidates.
We are ever grateful for all our supporters back home, you are a very important part of this ministry.
If you ever wish to see firsthand all that God is doing here, please let us know.
Sent with love,
