Keeping the prayer page updated proves to be a challenge, I hope you will continue to come back periodically to check the things we put here. They may not always be up to date, but we do believe prayer is important and we are committed to seeking God's face for His Will do be done in us and through us.
Will you join me in praying for these things:
1. Our children are on holiday from school. Pray especially for the safety of our children from the orphanage who go home to visit family in their home villages during this break time. Only children who have extended living family in safe situations are allowed to go to the village, but it can be a difficult time for an orphan.
2. Our leadership transition team is doing a great job learning how to care for the children. They've stepped up to the challenge of purchasing supplies, making repairs and managing building projects. In fact, they are getting a LOT done! I'm very proud of them and so eager to see them succeed.
3. Our School administrators are using the holiday to train community members and staff! This is so exciting to me. They've done a training session for all Grace Center department heads. Next week they'll be training the School Management Committee, the PTA and (my favorite) the Mother Board (this is a group of women chosen to oversee the girls in our school and meet with them to encourage them to stay in school and plan for a bright future). At the end of August, the training will continue as 16 of our teachers will be trained in the new National Reading Program curriculum. These are exciting days as we add 7th grade to our school in September and look forward to the completion of our registration process any day!
Thank you so much for praying!
