Time has been flying by since the boys returned from break! Dave began assisting with coaching junior high basketball and loves it. This has also allowed him to be able to spend more time with some of our boys.
We do devotionals with the boys during the week nights. Monday nights, we have given the boys a chapter of the Bible in which to read, study, and journal about. Tuesdays, we go over the assigned chapter and they are given the opportunity to share what they have learned. Wednesdays, we read the biography of George Muller, which the boys beg us to continue reading from when we reach the end of each chapter. Each night, they share prayer requests and pray for each other and their families. Thursdays, we are blessed with dorm cover for a couple hours and the boys get to have devotions with another RVA missionary and play silly and loud games 🙂 Just last week the boys began going to the 8th grade boys dorm on Mondays for a combined devotional time – led by RVA’s student chaplain – on the topic of staying pure and fighting temptation.
Please pray for our guys to seek (or continue to seek) a personal relationship with God. Please also pray for them as they face questions, temptations, and conflicts in relationships. In addition, pray for their families as they travel and live life in Africa while they are away from each other. Thank you so much for your prayers and support! We could not be here without you!
