- For our Staff Retreat – About 90 ECA staff members gathered in San Francisco to be challenged by our special speaker, a former missionary to Mexico and then a pastor in Texas. Besides the inspirational talks focusing on service, staff members enjoyed times of recreation and fellowship. A moving foot-washing ceremony highlighted Jesus’ example of serving humbly, despite His leadership position. Altogether, this retreat met and surpassed our expectations as far as team building and personal growth, preparing us to lead our community, living out the theme of service for this 2019-20 school year.
- For the arrival of Ric and Sharon Wiles to join our ECA staff team – it is a real answer to prayer! Despite the hurricane in the southeast U.S., the Wiles were able to arrive and begin serving at ECA in our MS and HS.
- For Grace Kwon‘s (MS math) and the baby’s health these last weeks before the birth.
- For the HS Service Trips – High school students will be serving at four locations outside Bogotá from Thu-Sat, Sep 19-21. Pray that God will use them to minister to others, and will use this time to change their lives. Pray also for safety and protection on the trips, and for wisdom and patience for the leaders. See more detailed information in the Secondary section.
- For the 7th/8th Retreat Thu-Fri, Sep 19-20, as the students focus on building and maintaining healthy relationships at a retreat center in San Francisco. Pray that students will take advantage of the teaching and fun times!
- Our students and staff will be praying during lunch times today and tomorrow for the HS service trips and the 7th/8th retreat, so feel free to join us wherever you are midday as we pray for these events.
