- For the challenging and refreshing time on our Sep 2-4 Staff Retreat in Villa de Leyva where we were able to dig into this year’s theme of LOVE with our guest speaker Jeff Holwerda, a pastor from the Chicago area. He highlighted the love of God, the love of self, the love for others, and love at ECA. Jeff was significant in loving and discipling our HS Bible teacher, Robbie Becker, when Robbie was in high school, so it was a privilege for him to see our ministry here at ECA where Robbie has played such a significant part.
- For the arrival of our MS math/science teacher, Roshan Thomas and his family. Pray for the family’s adjustment to Colombia since this is their first time living outside of India.
- For Carolina Rico (Spanish), who will be having major surgery on Thu, Sep 16. Pray that the doctors will be able to do everything they need to do by laparoscopy, so the surgery will be minimally invasive. Pray for a quick and successful recovery.
- Those who obey God’s commandments remain in fellowship with Him, and He with them. I John 3:24
ECA 7th and 8th graders are anticipating their annual fall retreat on Fri, Sep 17. The theme is Fellowship – Strengthening Friendly Relationships. We want to provide an enriching time for our students to reconnect and strengthen their friendships as they learn about the love of our Heavenly Father. Pray for our special speaker and the teachers who will be leading this time, and for our students to have receptive ears and hearts as they fellowship together.
- For the upcoming HS service trips on Fri, Sep 17. Due to the pandemic, the service trips are just 1 day, so students will not have a lot of interaction with people. Pray that our HS students’ efforts will be a blessing, and that the time they spend together as a class will be joyful, encouraging, and memorable. They will be serving at:
Hogar de Paz, El Codito
Centro Colombiano de Hipoterapia, Sopó
Reserva Natural Ecoparque Sabana, Sopó
Planting trees and sorting seeds
Finca JUCUM, La Calera
Planting trees and general maintenance
