It has been a long time, too long, since my last update! I don't even know how to describe the last six months except to say they have been busy! On this side when people are away for furlough we have to just fill in and make it work until they return. This spring I filled in for our Superintendent of Schools and then immediately stepped in to the Tree of Life Village Director's position when he left for time off. Life can be crazy over here with just your own job, so working two has kept me running.
Term two started in May and shortly after that camp season hit. Our kids started out the season with their own mini camp and learning about GRACE! We had hundreds of Americans come over the last two months and pour into thousands of our kids! It has been a joy to watch both the Americans and the kids enjoy camp week after week.
This camp season we opened seven homes throughout the village and were able to move in over 100 kids into the village. What an amazing time of celebration to watch these kids get to move home and be able to rescue even more children from terrible situations.
This past season God has been stretching me, humbling me, and pushing outside my comfort zone. Man, I never could have imagined what all God had in store for me when I moved over here, but not a day goes by that I don't feel your prayers and know how blessed I am because of all the people praying and encouraging me from back home!
“Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you."
