Sweet Goodbyes

Today has been bittersweet to say the least. This week has been extremely memorable for us. For some reason this group of students have worked their way into our hearts like few others.  Listening to their stories and seeing how God has worked in their lives, the freshness of their faith, the zeal for Gods word and hunger have been such a blessing and encouragement.  Today as we did the role plays we were once again filled with joy as the students practiced what they had learned this week. Our hearts are forever changed having met these young people a half a globe away from home.  Enjoy the pictures and please pray for them as they finish out the school year and go forward with Gods plan for their lives.  Who knows perhaps there is another Billy Graham or Reinhard Bonke in this group.  It has been such a privilege to be apart of their growth.  Thank you CCF for allowing us to come, thank you to our family for letting us go and thank you to those of you who prayed for us or gave financially.  We love you, PW and Sherry

Practicing what they learned in role play, here they are counseling Sherry.

They blessed us with cards and candy to say thank you.
Then they all laid hands on us and prayed for us.
