Students express appreciation!

Samantha spent 3 months with us in Costa Rica. She was such a blessing to us and the school. She helped us with school administration and getting all our student information on the computer. She willingly helped with whatever project or outreach activity we had. In this picture she is showing some girls different ways to wrap scarfs around their neck for a new fashion. They loved learning new things from the “gringa”. It was a joy to have her volunteer her time, enthusiasm and love.

Daniela is one of our sponsored students who is excelling quickly. She wrote this letter in English.  "Hello, my name is Daniela Picado. I live with my mother and my brother. I walk 40 minutes to school everyday. My favorite foods are soup, pizza. I also practice scoccer every saturday. My hobbies are listen to music, read amazing books. Studying English is important to me becasue I want to be a turistic guide, English teacher or work in a call center. I am so grateful for the English Classes. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to study English. I'm very happy."

We try to listen to our students and ask questions that stimulate thinking and self-evaluation. Building self-worth and confidence is a very important part of what we do.

  Our neighbor Pablo came over to have Bonnie help review for his English test. He had dropped out of school and is working during the days to financially help his family. He now attends night school so he can receive his high school diploma. Bonnie has made several games to make learning English fun and create a safe learning environment. We encourage kids to stay in school and not drop out. Bonnie also gave Pablo an New testament Bible in Spanish and one in English so he could compare the words and increase his vocabulary. The word of God never returns void so this will open his heart as well as his mind. 

Cornelio and Cailene are so thankful to be be parents and to share God's love to the next generation! May each of us be faithful today in the role that God has given us.
Lets begin this summer with a fresh desire
 to serve HIM with our whole heart and use our time and talents to honor HIM..

Jesus ministered by approaching people with mercy and compassion. He did not judge he loved. It was that love that drew people and initiated a response. John 15:1
