Here we are—3 weeks into our life in Eleuthera! We’re so blessed to be here. Our hearts are continually in thankful gratitude to God for all of the support we have received from friends and family. In all of the rush to start unpacking, my heart almost forgot to stay connected to God through Bible study. How did that happen?
This past week, God summoned me. Oh how thankful I am to be drawn back to Him. As I finished reading a book called A Glimpse of Grace, I was so excited to see the author’s journey to trusting who Christ is and all of His faithfulness. This is something that I love to keep learning about. Trusting God is sometimes a hard thing for me. I fall into worry so often. As I read about her journey, it was so neat to see how much peace she continued to receive from God. Peace. I love that. I also read in my devotion book where it also taught about the peace of Christ that overcomes you as you trust in Him more and more.
Uh-oh! What is God gearing me up for? I realize there will be so many challenges this school year. Is this why? Surely.
The transition from teaching preschool to older grades will be tough. It’s not just that though. It’s the difference in culture. Oh Lord, please help me trust. I do know though that over the course of my long journey to trusting Christ—trust+obedience to Him=PEACE. Thank you Lord!
Those are my thoughts for this week. Please pray for us. We love you all.

Prayer Requests & Praises*Pray that God will provide what we need, either a customs exemption or enough money, to clear the materials and supplies for this summer's mission work with the teams. Right now it's stuck at the airport customs office.*Pray that Young Life will continue to be interesting and engaging to the students, and that we will be able to challenge them to truly grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus. *Praise - Isaac and Melissa had a great time visiting the Haitian community in northern Eleuthera. Isaac made some fast friends. And the mission team during spring break has been a wonderful time and tremendous success!*Praise/Prayer - The school year is almost over. Praise that the year has been so great, but pray for the final two months to finish strong, us and the students.*Continue to pray that we're able to handle the summer mission teams. Summer is right around the corner, and there are about 10-12 (or possibly more) teams coming to us at Windermere. That's a lot of help, but there's a lot of prep to be done as well.
