I hope you had a Wonderful Christmas

Prayer Requests:
1. School: We are opening the Christian Nursery School on January 11, 2021. Most of the parents and children are non-believers, so please pray for the Lord to use us to reflect His love, to share the gospel, and to be a light as we care and teach our students.  

2. School: For provisions to run the school – we are stepping out in faith with the expenses, assisting families during this pandemic as well so please keep us in prayer for the everyday expenses to keep the school afloat. 

3. Family: This is my second year away for the holidays, so please pray that just as the Lord has filled my heart with peace that He would overwhelm my parents and the rest of my family with His peace as well.  My parents are at high risk so I appreciate your prayers for them to remain safe and well. 

4. Personal: For the Lord to fill me with wisdom, humility, and strength to lead this school, to share the gospel with my neighbors, and to remain close to Jesus everyday more and more. 

Thank you for your prayers!!Happy New Year!!!
