And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God!
Eph 3:18

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

Phil 2:5-8

A sad week at ABC

This week we were reminded of the tragedies that surround us here in Africa...

We lost a beautiful 3rd grade girl to Malaria this Wednesday morning. The entire school is in shock and mourning. Her name was Alisha. She was an only child. Her father was lost to Malaria 2 years ago. Please pray for her family, her friends, and our school. 

Also pray that we will be strong to proclaim the message of Christ and the assurance of His salvation during this time!  Many teachers were able to share the joy of the good news as they helped their classes to deal with the pain and fear this brought into their little hearts. We are reminded that this is why we are all here. Life on this Earth is short, and full of pain and loss. We are here for a moment as we prepare for our final Home. Alisha has exited this world of uncertainty, and has found joy. But her family and friends will miss her as they continue thier journey through this life without her.

Thank you all for your prayer and support.

God bless you and keep you!

Until next we "meet"...
