Acción de Gracias


While we were in the States, our church in Paraguay, Pozo Azul, allowed the community to use their facilities to hold a 3 month course in sewing and handicrafts.  Eight women completed the course.

On December 15th a special Thanksgiving Service (Acción de Gracias) was held to thank God for these women and the children and adults of the church who successfully completed another year of school.

Each participant in the community course learned skills that can help provide some income for their families.  They also received a certificate from the ministry of education.  Their finished products were proudly displayed.

Certificates were also given to the teens and adults who completed Bible studies during the year.

Finally, each child who successfully passed on to their next grade level received a special gift.

In a country where education is undervalued, we give thanks to God for all these accomplishments!
