Endings and Beginnings
The last couple months of school here have been busy. The teachers worked on making costumes for the drama and they and the students have been faithfully practicing for an hour every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, learning their lines so that on October 27, they will be able to act out the chosen Bible story of Balaam and the Donkey.
Myra planned a surprise birthday party one evening for when Maria turned 19 and invited all the deaf girls to stay the night. Maria was truly surprised and pleased, and we all had a grand time, sharing memories, eating snacks, and playing games that involved popping balloons.
The students are feverishly studying their words for the final competition on October 20th and are all excited to be almost done with school. Thank you for your support and prayers throughout the year, and please continue to remember all the deaf the next few months during their “summer vacation.” God bless each of you!
