Dear Prayer Partners,
Please forgive the lateness of this newsletter. Much has happened for God’s glory and we thank the Lord for His mercy and Grace.

In June, CCEI sponsored 13 educators and heads of school to the annual Association of Classical and Christian Schools conference held in Dallas, Texas. Colquitt Christian Academy in Moultrie, GA and Brown County Christian Academy in Sardinia, Ohio sent groups and Grace Christian Academy Long Island sent Head of School Steve Schultz. CCEI, Inc. sent David and Christy Anne Vaughan, Ann Preece and Kevin Long.
CCEI also helped Harold Naylor of Advance Christian Schools (@advanceChristianschools) sponsor a meeting for new and young schools. The meeting was so well attended that we will need a larger room next year at ACCS conference in Atlanta, GA.

In July, Christy Anne and mission partner Abigail Varillas from Yo Soy Jesus school in Lima, Peru traveled with a group from New York, including Grace Christian Academy science teacher Tanya, to help plant a new school in a Haitian settlement in the Dominican Republic. Lessons and snacks were provided for more than 100 students who otherwise would not have any schooling. The students speak Creole and Spanish but most do not read or write much in Spanish, the language of the Dominican Republic.

Big shout out and thank you to mission partner Martha Phelps, Real Life Church, Clewiston, FL for donating more than 100 beanie babies. The cute toys as well as Spanish Language Bible story coloring books and candy were given out to the Haitian-Dominican Republic students.
