Carnaval and Prayer

Well, this week presents us with a 4 day weekend. The holiday is called "Carnaval" and is basically a time before Lent that people allow themselves to do whatever they want. As you may imagine, this is a time full of moral degradation. We will obviously not be joining in these festivities but we do get two days off from school to be able to catch up on some work and relax.

On a sadder note, one of my roommates had to leave to go home this week unexpectedly. She has been battling with perpetual headaches and she needs to be cared for back at home. This leaves a family here in Language School without a nanny and teacher for their two youngest children. Please pray that this hole will be filled quickly and please be in prayer for Danielle's health.

School is going well, the family of one of my students is preparing to leave on furlough and will be gone in 2 weeks. I can hardly believe it! Please pray for them as they need to raise more support back in the States and for their 4 kids' transitions. Okay and also for mine because I will be sad to see them leave!

So that's all for now, I hope to update you again soon!
