Where did she go?
I am sorry that I haven't updated the blog in a long time. I lost track and before I knew it february was over and we are desperately waiting for the spring to warm us up again!
Alot of things has been going on here with our ministry, I would like to give you an update on several programs starting with an update on our friend Phinias.
Phinias underwent surgery after two radiation treatment, his pain was too much for him to handle because the cancelous tumor was enlarging and almost attacking his spine. So the surgery was to maintain the spread and to make sure that it doesn't do any damage to his nerves. After his surgery, Phinias had a few complications with some infections that has taken a while to get out of his system. Phinias should be released from the hospital today or tomorrow, please keep him and his family in your prayers.
In the Fall of 2008, First Presbyterian Church started an ESL program that catered to African refugees. It was a great moment of witness for both the refugees and the tutors. The children absolutely enjoyed being a part of the choir eventhough they were not used to the songs that they were learning. The families learned a lot, and got a different view of the christian community. This class has come to an end, it was a sad evening full of tears and shared memories.
Our after school program is still moving, and it's almost spring break, the students can't wait and neither can we! It's time to take a little break from the math and geography and kick the ball around a little bit. If you are on spring break and staying around come and join us in the afternoons as we'll be enjoying afternoons of soccer and other outside activities. The spring break is March 16th - March 21st.
This spring break, we have the privilege of having a mission team from Mississippi join us for a few days. It will be a week of great fun and service to the community.
Come join us for your spring break!
