Guatemala Missionary News, June 2014.
Cooking classes have been incredibly fun this month. Sharie has amazing patience working with the students and is doing a great job teaching them. This month they learned to make Mediterranean food, Gyro burgers, ice cream desserts and many other delicious meals.
Our carpentry classes have really taken off. We have spent a long time working to get to this point, and it is exciting to see it finally paying off. Over the past month, we have been working on setting up the workshop in a way that makes it easier to teach the students.
We built some new cabinets and worktables and also started exploring how to make wooden bracelets/bangles. They have been coming out beautifully. As part of our vocational training program, the students sell the products they make and all profits either go to them or are placed in savings. Everyone who has seen the bracelets and pens have loved them and we are in the process of updating our website so we can sell online.
We have continued having Bible classes with the teenage girls from Fundaninos in our home. Our memory work this month has been the Sermon on the Mount, and I am proud to say that almost all of them have memorized it.
At the Precious Moments school, we were blessed to receive a visit by a team from Orphan Outreach. They played games, did activities, shared a message of Christ's love with the students and brought a huge donation of donated school supplies for the students and teachers.
