Two weeks ago I returned to Costa Rica from my third project trip with EMI. This was my fist trip as leader without a co-leader. We served Colegio Cristiano Avivando El Fuego (Fanning the Flames Christian School) in Tizate, Guatemala. Tizate is a small neighborhood across the highway from Pastores, near Antigua.
Colegio Cristiano is a ministry of Global Shore Opportunities, a Canadian based ministry. They provide Christian education to the poor of Tizate and the surrounding area. Currently they offer classes through third grade and intend to add a grade each year as their existing students continue. Eventually, they intend to have 350 students.
Here are some pictures from the trip.

Thank you so much for praying for me and my family once again! This was a fantastic trip full of wonderful memories. I know it is because of your prayers that the project was a success, the team was flexible and my family did well in my absence. Thank you Jesus! I love my job!
