Celebrating Scholastic and Spiritual Success

One of the things I do in Puerto RIco is teaching English to Puerto Ricans. Here are some 11th graders that I teach celebrating their success and promotion to the 12th grade. 

My favorite part of teaching them is the Bible lessons we share in the mornings. 

It can be exhausting teaching young kids, but it is also energizing as well. It certainly is well worth the effort. English may give them an advantage in life, but it is Christ that has the power to change those lives into something truly remarkable.

Mother's Day

We had a nice Mother's Day service today. I preached a sermon from Judges 4 & 5 contrasting two notable mothers: Deborah, a mother of Israel, and the mother of Sisera, the oppressor of Israel.

One of our young ladies, Wilmarie Negron, did the shopping and prepared the dinner for her mother and the other mothers of our church. Thanks, Wilmarie!
