The Newman School, through it's curriculum, is working hard to change the children's attitudes toward environmental pollution. Our students are taking this issue very seriously. This month they planted 60 new trees at El Arca property. They also worked with a variety of items that we normally throw away like: cups, paper, cans, etc. They recently hosted an exposition, which was presented at the Danli central park. It showcased a wide variety of things we can create with what we call trash. We are very excited to see this sea of good ideas coming from their minds and hearts, and the responsibility that they are assuming about our serious problem of pollution and the destruction of the whole environment.
We are also very thankful with our Lord for the donations that have arrived for the construction of the church building at Cerro Grande ("big hill"), Teupasenti. This new congregation of more than 25 people is in a remote area of the city. They are excited to continue to see progress in their construction building. They still need your help. For more information, please check our projects section on the website.
Concerning the preparation of this year's medical mission team, Dr. Patrick Reeves, Enrique and Judy worked hard recruiting people from Michigan and the New England area. At this point, the mission team consists of 19 people ready to come in August 2017.
