Electricity has arrived at La Concordia! At the second parent-teacher meeting, held on September 29th, the school was just glowing in the darkness of the poorly-lit village. Inside, all reports were glowing as well, from all ends of the conversations – teachers, pastors, parents.
Over the past month the students have learned the first 6 commandements, the Lord’s Prayer, the Apostles Creed, and three hymns. After the meeting, many of the parents and children remained in attendance for the Wednesday night worship service. the children sang together with great gusto the hymn – “Praise God from whom all blessings flow” – and then remained at the front of the church, with front row seats to witness the baptism of a classmate and in younger brother. What a wonderful picture of the little children being welcomed by Jesus into His family through His death and resurrection!
