Men and their songs

One thing that we can say for sure, our men can really wail on their instruments.  Each men’s meeting begins with pulling out the guitars and our bongo, and we have at it playing our favorite songs.  The guys are really doing well playing.  I often find myself singing along without an instrument.

Crafty women

Every moment that they had free, they were cutting, pasting, designing and creatively producing stuff having to do with our theme.  One of our sites has been decorated, now we need to do the same with the hall where we’ll have the kids meet.

Getting the right moves

The youth spent the week practicing 6 new choreographies for the songs that will highlight the VBS.  They’ve worked hard, now it’s time to teach the kids.

Last minute notes

As we ended our week of preparations for VBS, Adi took the time to remind us all of our duties and of our remaining homework.  Pray with us that we don’t get so overwhelmed with the work that we forget to connect with the kids!

Full House

Our girls are now all back.  We picked up Keila this last week at the airport and like Kiana, she has many stories, photos and new friends to present.  The house is once again filled with laughter, chit-chat, and clothes thrown all around.

School’s out for…

We had several students graduate from elementary school this week.  They were ready to leave their schools in anticipation for what’s ahead.  We also had some middle school students graduate to high school.

True to Form

As we’ve trained musicians, we’ve also begun using those seasoned students to begin teaching the classes for the new ones that show up.  They are doing a great job spending time with them and encouraging their students to have patience, and practice.
