November

A Look Back

Families,

October was super fun!! Learning about Cambodia had us diving into Bananas and Coconut Milk, starting our first sewing project, and learning about the sweet missionaries who work at universities in Cambodia to be a support for the students that have left their Hindu ways for their faith in Jesus Christ! We continue to pray for the lost in Cambodia and all over the world! We are soo thankful to our church family who helped us get soo close to our goal for our Derby Fundraiser! We were blessed to receive $1400! Only $400 to go, please be in prayer with me that the money will be provided!! I think our students had a blast fundraising for their track and raised quite the excitement with their efforts!

This is Happening!!!

~This month we will be enjoying the sights and adventures of Colorado as we dive into the lives of missionaries who serve there.

~We will begin taking an offering for Lottie Moon Christmas offering to help provide for our International Missionaries! This offering goes to provide housing, transportation, supplies, food, etc for our missionaries abroad! Please be in prayer as our program and church begin collecting for this very needed and appreciated offering!

We are soo blessed with the 50+ shoeboxes our church is able to donate and would love for all to be a part of this special process of delivering them! We will return quickly to the church for small refreshments and a time of thanksgiving together! Your children will be ready to pick up at 7 as usual!
