Erica and I went to Khin, Kyi Shew, and Eh Dah’s house again last night for dinner and spent a good couple of hours there. We watched some movies of dances they did in Burma and their mom showed us pictures of her dance group. She also brought out some outfits and ended up giving Erica and me an outfit each. It was a cool experience. With Erica and I in our outfits and us just hanging out in their house and eating their food I really felt like I was in a different country. It was crazy when we finally left to find we were right down the street from our house.
A huge praise we have right now are three senior girls God has lead to Wherry this past semester. They will be graduating this May and are all interested in helping with Wherry more and possibly interning. This Friday we are all going to have lunch, plan for the center, meet with John, and they will spend the night at our place in Wherry and just get to know each other better and so they can get a deeper feel for what we do within the community. Please keep this Friday, as well as each of these girls, in your prayers.
Lately there has been a couple of incidences with some of the older boys that go to our program, like fights and arguments. I also had my first encounter with an upset parent, which has discouraged me a bit. Please pray that God will give us the discernment on how to handle each situation and also that these boys can begin to see how God wants us to treat each other.
Several people have been donating clothes recently, which has truly been a blessing. We’ve had the opportunity to let some of the girls pick out what they want from a very nice selection of cute clothes given to us by Jennifer Frazier, Morgan Roberts, Amy Adkins, and Stacia. I’ve definitely seen a boost of confidence in one of the girls in particular who has worn a new item of clothing every day to the center since she got them. I could definitely see the holy Spirit at work as we passed the clothes out. Their joy was such a cool thing to experience.
This Friday we will be having show and tell if anyone wants to come by. We are also going to be taking pictures for Mother’s Day soon and planning some cool projects in May once Erica and I are out of school. I will post more info on that as we plan them if anyone wants to help out. One more week of classes then exams for Erica and I both—-PLEASE PRAY FOR US TO MAKE IT THROUGH!!
As always, thank you all for your interest in our ministry. We love you all and God Bless!
