We had a great start to the school year with 130 students enrolled and two very good new teachers. Anielka is teaching English and Computer Science. Clementina is teaching sixth grade and is a good addition to the team.
We have enjoyed seeing the Lord work in the lives of the people at CC Managua this winter.
In November, we had a record ten people from CC Managua attend the Central American pastors and leaders conference in Antigua, Guatemala. It was a good time of fellowship and growth, especially for some of the youth leaders.
July was kicked off with a great team from CC Chelmsford in Mass. They were a whirlwind of activity.
Not everyone has the knowledge and the energy to do a multitude of projects, repairs and ministry in the same week. They installed screens to prevent cats from getting in the ceiling at the school. Installed a new roof vent at the school. Repaired the ceilings in the class rooms, repaired and cleaned the gutters in both the school and the feeding center. They repaired twenty chairs in the sanctuary and almost an equal number of desks at the school, and much, much more.
It has been a busy year at Calvary Chapel Managua so far, full of the blessings of God! Shortly after Cal and Jessie returned from their annual Christmas/New Years trip to the states, Cal began preparing for a baptism and on March 2, we held a baptism for five ladies from our church. It is always a blessing to see the people from the church growing in their walk with the Lord!
In September we had a great team from CC San Juan Capistrano in California. They took
on the huge project of removing the mineral stains and re-coating our rock wall in the sanctuary. It now looks better than new.
