We thank God for those of you who are praying for us and with us. You are a blessing.
Thankful for Rachel– We give God thanks for bringing Rachel to the team. She has been here in the DR for about a month now. We pray for her as she settles into a new life and routine in a new country and context. We pray that God will guide and her protect her throughout her time in the DR as she works to help improve programs and also seek how we can better measure outcomes.

Upcoming APRENDI trainings– Upcoming APRENDI trainings in February include: Managing Discipline in the Classroom (2/13), Managing Classroom Environment (2/15), Budgeting (2/22), and Strategic Planning (2/22). We pray that God would use these trainings for his good plans and purposes in the lives of the participants as well as in the schools and students they work with. We give thanks for the partnership with APRENDI and ask that God would continue to bless our relationship with them.

Wisdom for school leaders– We lift up all the school leaders we work with (directors, proprietors, administrators, etc.) and pray that they would be filled with hope and encouragement in order to continue doing the amazing work they are. We have been amazing by the work we have witnessed despite the many challenges they face daily. They often ask that we keep them in our prayers.
