So, he started at a new charter school here in January that teaches in English, Spanish, and Chinese, and we pray this will give him the new network of friends and activities that he needs. Please keep him in your prayers as he navigates this challenging time.
New Special Assignment – In order to meet William’s educational needs, and for Barb to complete a Ph.D. in Youth Development at Texas A & M University, we will be based in College Station, Texas for three years.
During this time, we both will remain connected with the projects in Chile — Girls’ Clubs, Beekeeping, Rainwater Harvesting, Men’s Volunteer Relief Network, and others.
Barb will introduce the Girls’ Clubs project to some of our partners in Latin America, providing mentor training, materials, and ongoing support. Dwightwill work in help and consultation with partners and development projects, initially in Mexico and Nicaragua.
This development comes out of a long period of seeking God’s way, in prayer, and in consultation with our Area Director and our partners.
Our new assignment helps us meet a priority need for William’s education and growth, and at the same time enables us to respond to a call to enhance and expand the Girls’ Clubs project, and to strengthen ties of partnership in development and relief work.
