Library room update

Last week, a small group from Iowa helped us update our temporary library room as well as do some needed maintenance in the school. After painting the room, all of the kids and teachers came through, picked their color, and left their hand print on the wall. The kids also enjoyed practicing their English skills on the Iowans.

A true man of God

Last week, Neal Williams, a true man of God and a close friend passed away and is now with the Lord. Neal and his wife Linda went with us to language school in Costa Rica in 1987, and not only ministered as a preacher and a Dentist, but helped us and our 4 kids keep our sanity as we learned a new language and a new culture. The funeral is today (Tuesday the 5th) in Gladewater, TX where he grew up. He leaves a strong Christian legacy.

University students

Many of you know that Barb and I are helping with an English course at the local university. While we want to help them with English, we also want to make a relationship with them and input spiritual values into their lives. We invited all our students to visit our school and have an "English night", and these came. Got to eat American brownies and practice English.
