We’re excited to share an update with you from Maria Antoine, our local hero at Ensanche Altagracia.
We praise the Lord for many reasons, I have to shout to the Lord because for many years, this past December was the first time we were able to pay all the teachers their Christmas bonus—this was a miracle, THANK YOU for your special help. My children were very excited when the laptops arrived at the school. Wow, it was like a dream come true for many of them. This was a HUGE prayer request and now we see how the Lord provided.
I have to say that one of the more significant moments already in this 2014 was to go to the retreat with all the staff. It was really wonderful. God spoke to me in many different ways: As a teacher, I was challenged to be dynamic when teaching. As a preacher of the gospel, I was challenged to not only preach during any special event, but every day to my children at the school when they are in class, as a daughter. I have to reflect in the importance of surrender all to Jesus. One of the moments I will never forget was the time when they pray for us, the Holy Spirit ministered my heart with great words. Wow, thanks God for all of this.
I praise the Lord because almost none of the children are ill! They all came back from the Christmas break and are doing fine!
