Ibis Gardens

While we were at Ibis this past week I got to keep River Belle for Sky while she taught the participants PILAT.  It was so much fun to be able to spend time with her.  
During the mornings the participants have about an hour with someone in administration to prepare them for what lies ahead once they get to their place of service.  Then Sky teaches them PILAT which is a language learning tool up until lunch.  After lunch they get to enjoy some free time except for one afternoon where they meet with someone to debrief their experience at 40/40.

The kids always enjoy swimming even if it is a little cold.

Our 40/40 group
Please pray for all of these participants that have now all gone back to their place of service.  Pray for them as they learn language and culture in their countries.

Our family with Anna Grace.  She used to live in Zambia so we already knew her.  It sure was neat to be able to spend some time with her this past month and see the wonderful young woman that she has become.

Two weeks before 40/40 began we did not know who we were going to get to teach the children.  While we were at our mission meeting in Malawi we met Sally.  She agreed to come and be the teacher this time.  She did a great job!  We are so thankful for her sacrifice to come and be our teacher for a month.

The last night we always have a program.  The kids acted out a story they had learned.  They even got some of the adults involved.

 Jane Ann, Adrienne, and Amberly sang a song and showed many different ways to use a chitenge.  It was so cute!
