Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 
New teammate– We are excited to announce the addition of a new Edify team member in the Dominican Republic. Leandro Peguero has recently joined Edify in the DR as the Christian Transformation & Training Officer. Leandro is not new to Edify nor working with private Christian schools as he has been one of the primary trainers for APRENDI, our teacher and leadership training partner.  Specifically, Leandro has worked with school leadership teams to develop strategic plans, perform critical self-analysis and help them lead in a way that will achieve their mission. We lift him up in prayer as he transitions into this new role and pray that God would continue to use him to bless the schools we work with.

AMO Trainings– We’ve had one AMO training so far this summer and give thanks for a great turn out (with 67 participants) and fruitful training in La Romana. There will be two more AMO trainings this summer, one in Santo Domingo July 29-August 2 and one in Santiago August 6-10. We pray that God would be present in all the details and planning leading up to the trainings and that through these trainings the AMO participants would be transformed by the Holy Spirit in a way that will impact the students they serve for years to come.
