Praise and prayer

Praise

  • For the first ECA Conference of the year that was held on Sat, Sep 21 here at ECA. It was a great time of teaching by Pastor Andrew Lupton on how to be better parents and how to better understand our children. We can’t wait for the next ECA Conference!
  • For safety for our ECA community during last week’s strike and the disturbances on the streets.
  • For HS Service Trips where our 9th-12th graders were able to serve in La Calera, Soacha, Lijaca, Tunja, and Pacho. Besides leading recreational, English and Bible activities, they were able to interact and encourage/challenge the students from these different places. In some of the places, relationships were forged and we saw God work as students made decisions to begin deeper relationships with God. In other service sites, our students were met with resistance and learned more about what God’s persistant love looks like. Besides the service opportunities, classes were able to bond and deepen their own relationships.
  • For the 7th/8th Retreat where our students enjoyed recreational and spiritually growing times together in La Vega.

Prayer

  • For Beth’s recruiting trip which begins the week of Oct 7. Overall, Beth will be visiting over 15 colleges and universities, speaking in education classes or participating in recruiting fairs. Pray that God will be planting seeds in the hearts of future ECA teachers and that He will specifically draw the ones to ECA for the 2020-21 school year that are needed. Pray specifically for interactions in the following places, and if you know any possible teachers that Beth could connect with anywhere along the route, contact the ECA office and pass along the information.

After 3 days in the emergency room, she was moved to a regular room in Clínica Palermo on Friday. Pray for her recovery, and for the medical professionals to have wisdom from the Lord.
