Dear Prayer Partners,
God is so good! We have many blessings to celebrate.
Mission partner Mary Bonelli (in pink with anchor) blessed us with a visit in January. She is working on the Norwegian cruise lines for her job. During her vacation, she volunteered at Yo Soy Jesus school in Lima and at Comunidad Cristiana Yo Soy Jesus church youth group Somos Uno (We Are One) with mission partner Abigail Varillas (next to Mary in black with brown purse).
Later, in February Abigail came and volunteered in Florida at Christ Classical Academy in Tallahassee and at Colquitt Christian academy in Moultrie, GA. She guest taught about Peruvian culture, education, geography and climate (pictured below). Classical Christian Education International, Inc. donated maps to CCA in Moultrie, GA as well as Yo Soy Jesus school in Lima, Peru for classrooms. CCEI also sponsored CCA Head of School Kelly Coyle to the new ClassicalU online professional development resource published by Classical Academic Press. http://www.classicalu.com/
When Abigail had to return to Peru in late February for the beginning of their school year in March, mission partner Richard Hendricks and his family went with her, carrying many school supplies, toys and learning aids.
ACCS Annual Conference is coming in June, 2017. CCEI will sponsor Brown County Christian Academy in Ohio – they have more than doubled enrollment and are hiring two more teachers – Praise the Lord! We also expect the head of school and possibly a teacher or two from Grace Christian Academy in Long Island, NY to participate. For more information on this year’s special teacher tract: http://2017.repairingtheruins.org/essential-training-for-classical-christian-teachers/
Please be in prayer for start-up and young schools in Moultrie, GA; Ocala, Florida; Uvalde, TX; Brown County, Ohio; Lima, Peru; as well as increased enrollment for Grace Christian Academy in Merrick, New York (Long Island) and Christ Classical Academy in Tallahassee, Florida.
God provided funds for us to apply to have Abigail continue in our Spanish translation project with our home church, Real Life Church International. She is applying for a religious worker temporary visa to come for 8 months to learn and work in church outreach and as a translator. Please be in prayer for her paperwork to find favor with the government.
Also, please send us your prayer requests so we can pray for you! Let us know if we may share them with our board for additional prayer support.
In Jesus’ name and service,
David and Christy Anne Vaughan
