Teach, Eat, Sleep, Pray, Repeat,...

Our life the past month and a half has been constant of these four things: teaching, eating, sleeping and praying. 

Everyday we have the opportunity to share our students about the love of Jesus and His goodness. 

While we've definitely found our rut, it's been a blessing to see the subtle ways in which God works each day- whether it be seeing growing interests in the gospel in our classes, unforgettable moments of bonding and laughs and tears with our family group, or being encouraged and loved on by our fellow teammates. Everyday is familiar and alien- a grandiose recipe of fulfilled expectations and events we could never had imagined. God continues to blow our minds.  

Things We Have Taught Our Students:
  • The most important thing: many stories from the Bible, and shared about just who Jesus is. 
  • "Live long and prosper" (with the hand motion)
  • The five rules of life: (These are Brian's Rules)
    1. Jesus
    2. Dinosaurs
    3. Breathing
    4. Eating
    5. Love (said with an eyebrow wiggle)
  • In Mikki and Abbey's classes, they memorize a Bible verse each week. They have learned John 3:16, John 14:6, Romans 6:23, and are learning Acts 4:12.
Prayer Requests: 
  • For divine conversations with people
  • Continued health
  • Energy and Strength
