End of Year Push

The year is quickly coming to an end, only six more days of school!

Please continue to pray for the students and staff that are leaving at the end of the year, or that have many friends leaving, pray for peace in the midst of the turmoil of transition.

Pray for continued blessing in the finances at ICS as we are working to get renovation complete to prepare for more growth next year.

Pray for our Bible teach Les, he went into the doctor on Friday and they found a growth. It was removed today and scans of his whole body didn't find any more, but this tumor was cancerous so he will be going through some mild radiation therapy. Les is married with two little girls (about 2 and 4 years old).

Pray also for the father of one of our second grade children. He had a massive stroke over the weekend. Apparently he is doing reasonably well now, but still has a lot of work before full recovery.

One more request is for one of the other NICS schools. They just found out that some of their payroll taxes were not paid to the government as required. The government is charging them fines (which they understand and know they need to pay). The government is also imposing a penalty of revoking the visas of the 7 teachers hired this past year. It will be a big work for the school to find the replacement teachers in time for next year as this is a sensitive country. Pray that God will change the hearts of the government and/or that He will provide the many teachers necessary to fill the holes!

Thank you so much for all your support and prayers! Aaron is doing wonderfully, finally has another tooth on the bottom (he has 4 back molars, 4 top-front and 3 bottom-front teeth now) and another is close behind.

Enjoy the pictures and the history lesson.
