Young Encouragers

These dear young people have been busy encouraging others in practical ways.  We correspond regularly with our two class missionaries, using e-mail, Zoom, text, snail mail, and this week some fun photos they planned and took themselves.  We also sent jokes and our own cartoons to a young friend who broke his leg this week.  What a blessing these children are with their big, caring hearts!

I Thessalonians 5:11

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

Hebrews 10:23-25

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

I Peter 4:8-10

Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace:

Praying for Alicia (our missionary at Life Action Camp)

Alicia Shedd, Mrs. Shedd’s daughter, is one of our two class missionaries.  I hope everyone will keep her in prayer over the summer, as that is her super busy ministry time leading the CREW of volunteers for Life Action family camp.  She is now in the middle of the twelve weeks of family camp, battling chronic Lyme as she serves the Lord. Here are her latest pictures!

Praying for Anibal, our Compassion Child

Several weeks ago, I had the opportunity to volunteer for the Compassion Experience in White River Junction.  Look who I saw during my shift!

We just received a letter from our Compassion child Anibal along with an updated photo, so I thought I would pass it on to the children so they can be reminded to pray for him.

Dear sponsor,

I send you greetings with love and I hope you are in good health next to your family.  I am happy to write you again and I answer your questions.  I had the chance to have a happy Easter next to my family.  We went to church, we prepared delicious tamales (traditional Guatemalan food made of corn dough and meat), we went for a walk, and we visited my grandparents.  I like to go for a walk and play soccer.  Now I am in a soccer team named Barcelona.

I am well, and thanks for asking.  I am healthy.  My family is wonderfully enjoying of the blessing of God.

This year I started eighth grade.  I am taller, and there are new changes on me.  I take care of my animals, and I feed them.  My school is big.  There are 12 classrooms.  It has two yards.  One is to play soccer, and the other is to play basketball, and the roof is of terrace.

We are five in my family.  My parents are lovely, but my father is the most serious.  We share, and we go for a walk.

I thank you for the letters that you sent me where you show your love to me, and I love you too.  My hobbies are to play soccer and take care of my animals.  I share with my friends.  I have a pet named Boby, and he is a fun dog and he likes to play.  Do you have any pet?

Please pray for my education.  I say goodbye and hope you have success in your daily activities.

To the Montshire with a Missionary!

Our dear class missionary, Alicia Shedd, is back in NH for a family visit.  She blessed us by coming along on our field trip to the Montshire so she would have more opportunities to get to know the children who pray regularly for her work at Life Action Ministries.  Then she thanked us by creating this wonderful video of our day together!  My favorite shot is the slow-mo rocket launch! Enjoy!
