What gain is there in waiting on the Lord? How can people like us persevere? Sunday will take a look through the lens of Isaiah 40:27-31. Who doesn’t need “wings?” Join in for worship at 10 am. 2437 S Centre City Parkway in Escondido.

Men’s Prayer | Saturday, July 6 at 8 am. We will meet at the Piedras Pintadas trailhead in RB. Coffee, donuts and prayer. We will meet in the dirt parking lot and then ascend a short hill for a view of our city and to seek the Lord for revival.

Update from Char

This week, pray for the Su Refugio team to Paraguay to have attentive eyes & open hearts for connecting with our brothers and sisters in Paraguay. Here is an update from Char:

“Let me share what has been going on last week:

Nidia, a teacher trained through Miracle 139, has a growing school- 85 students come for tutoring in small groups. She has truly taken what we taught her to the next level. Our work was not in vain!

I led an Active Learning Training for the second grade, Special Ed classroom in Tobati (the city where Su Refugio is). It was very well received. The only complaint was that there wasn't sugar for the coffee at break. We went to visit some of the classrooms a few days later to encourage them, model some strategies, and make suggestions for individualization. It was so encouraging to see the difference from how classrooms were run a few years ago! My co-teacher Wilson calls teachers HEROES! because of all they do with so little.

For example, this teacher had her Special ed students make numbers with hierba (the herbs they make a favorite drink mate and tereré with).

There's also relationship drama going on, which happens everywhere, so I need God's love and kindness to know my role in it. Thank you for praying for the work here. It's such an honor to be part of it.

Love and blessings, Charlotte”
