Pool Day

Last friday we took all the kids from the school in Mata Gorda to the pool for a special end of the year trip. It was so much fun! We took them to a place called Rancho Dos Rios, which is actually a really nice hotel/restaurant here in Jarabacoa. The manager was so nice and gave us the admission price for half off. This was such a special treat for the kids. They had so much fun swimming and eating pizza. They especially loved floating around in the inner tubes.

This is the jacuzzi-turned-kiddie pool where my class spent their time.

I posted more photos to facebook, you can check them out here:

Women's Bible Study Update

The women's Bible study is going great!! Praise the Lord! We got rained out a few weeks in a row, but this last week we were back in action. One of the women commented to me that this has been the most successful Bible study group they have ever had. She said she has never seen the women so excited and talkative before. This is wonderful and such confirmation that God will take control. I was so worried about this study that I would not have enough so say to "lead" these women, but God has stirred their hearts and He is leading them and I just get to sit back and watch.
