One month in and I can honestly say that Paraguay is beginning to work its charm on me. It’s an impossible place to describe, I can’t explain what it’s like – it’s old but modern; it’s eccentric but understated; it’s poor and it’s rich; it’s beautiful and it’s plain; it’s exciting but it lacks vibrancy. I think it’s a “have-to-be-there” situation. I have tried to explain it, and some of my thoughts and emotions, on my blog: hannahparaguay.blogspot.com – please feel free to read!
I’ve really appreciated your prayerful support thus far, and I hope to be able to send home regular prayer letters with a brief update on what I’m doing.
School is very busy at the moment with exams and class trips/retreats – I’d appreciate your prayer for school:
For the pupils:
- for God’s protection in every aspect of their lives.
- that exam time would be stress-free and that pressure from parents would be minimal
- for safe and memorable trips, especially for the 3rd Form in their final year of school
For the staff:
- for energy and enthusiasm to get through the next few busy weeks
- for wisdom in dealing with difficult pupils and parents
- that our lives would reflect Jesus and help point our pupils to Him.
Please keep in touch, I love hearing from home! And of course I’d be more than happy to fill in a bit more detail about what exactly I’m doing.
