Update #201911 – MAKING AN IMPACT

IMG-20191030-WA0091

What a blessing it is to know we are making a real impact in the lives of so many children and families.  Together, through Christ, there are 16 families with stable, full time jobs; 115 children receiving an education and hope for the future; nearly 20,000 meals provided…I could go on and on about all God has done through you and through PCA.  Thank you for helping us make a truly lasting impact on so many lives for the kingdom!!

FRUIT DAY

I am so proud of how our teachers are creatively, working hard to educate and grow our students.  In October we had our first “Fruit Day” where children were encouraged to bring healthy fruits to school and were taught the importance of healthy eating.  We saw apples, grapes, coconut, mango, oranges, guayaba and bananas.

INDIGENOUS DAY

This month, our students celebrated the indigenous peoples of Nicaragua by dressing up and having a mini-parade to honor the historic peoples of Nicaragua.  It was a fun day for the children and a good way for them to learn more of their beautiful history and culture.

READING COMPETITION

Such a proud moment for PCA as two of our first grade students placed 1st and 2nd place in a city-wide reading competition.  This is a moment truly representing the impact PCA can have on the life and future of a child.  I will be sharing the full story and backstory in detail at our events in Florida next month.  We congratulate Erick Daniel and Andrea Nicole for their amazing accomplishment!!  Erick will move up to represent the city of Palacaguina and PCA at the upcoming regional competition.

PCA SPONSORSHIP

We gladly introduce to you two children needing sponsorship at PCA.  Sponsoring a child not only provides a quality education, but a meal every day, uniforms, books and supplies to help them stay in school.  Please share with others the opportunity to make a real difference in the life of a child.  A sharable page is provided along with this update.

THANK YOU!!!

God is so good!!  We are forever grateful for all of you who partner with us in prayer and support each month to make a difference in the lives of the children and families in Palacaguina.  We pray you never grow weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9)  What a blessing to being doing so much for the kingdom together and to know that God promises us a wonderful harvest for our diligence and perseverance.  We thank you for the sacrifices you make in order to so deeply touch the lives of others.  We could not do this without you!!

Dios te bendiga de la familia Witonski!!!  (God Bless you from the Witonski family)
