Hello Friends and Family from Gayla and the PVBC team!
We had another great day ministering in the Mole! Betty finished her study of Revelation. The ladies seemed really engaged – she is so good at keeping their attention!
For today’s parenting class, Lisa and Sarah had around 160 ladies! They just kept coming and coming! Pierre and the guys were busy dragging in more chairs the whole time! It was a little chaotic but our ladies did a great job of sharing their “mom” hearts with the moms here.
Our friend Colleen, taught the final lesson for the New Discipleship Ladies. She taught about counting God’s blessings. I’m sure she will blog more about this herself so I will skip to the end. After class, the church ladies who have been helping disciple this new group, gave out their rewards for attending this 8 week session of studies. Each lady received 4 hens, 1 rooster, and some feed! This is a blessing from God which should help them feed their families through eggs and/or baby chickens. It was a blessing for us to watch! They had to go in the chicken coop to catch them and then hand them over to the ladies. They tied their feet together so it would be easier to carry. Then the feed sack went on the head! I don’t know how they do it but they make it look easy. I hope there will be some pictures on the blog so you can see for yourself!
Tomorrow we want to finish strong! We are going to Preskul in the morning to do a lesson, snack, and craft to whoever shows up when we get there! We are planning to do the Good-o-Meter skit again. If you are curious about this, you can Google it and find a video on YouTube! Tomorrow evening we want to bless the staff here by cooking a Mexican Fiesta.
Thanks for your prayers and support which have allowed us to be here! Keep praying and we’ll see you soon!
Hi Lauren and Hannah- Love you both! Thanks for your comments, it’s been a busy day and so nice to hear. I will call you Friday as soon as I can. Sorry to hear you missed Girl Scouts. Hopefully, dad figures out how to turn the cookie order form in. J Love you guys, mom
Hello. This is Colleen. We had a great day today with lots of good Bible teaching. It was wonderful to see how many women came to the parenting class. We had to keep getting more chairs. I gave a short talk on blessings. The ladies were happy that I spoke to them a little in Kreyol. We made bracelets to count our blessings each day. Then the ladies were each given chickens. So I held those while they figured out how to carry them. Funny. It was great to hear from Isaiah and Cameron. I love you, boys.
