Rwanda/5th Grade 3/12/19: Day 2 Continued . . .

The fifth grade class was able to help out the Hyde Park Facilities team today. We sorted candles for Christmas Eve (and even sang Silent Night!) and washed several exterior windows downstairs.  Some of the CDC children inside the rooms started washing their side of the window as we washed the outside, which was really cute. A representative from Happy Birthdays came and shared about their organization and how we can help.  Later, we’ll be helping the facilities team again and dropping off donations at the Hyde Park Food Pantry across the street. It’s been a full day, and we aren’t done yet! 🙂

Rwanda/5th Grade 3/12/19: Chapel and Ronald McDonald House

Day 2 is underway! The students presented an excellent chapel this morning, including dancers, scripture readers, prayer leaders, fact presenters, and a dancing banana! We are proud of our students for stepping up and leading! They also learned about the Ronald McDonald House and how they help people.  More to come for today . . . stay tuned!


Rwanda/5th Grade 3/11/19: Dogs, Diapers, and Day 1 Details

Fifth grade students learned about two local ministries today: Austin Dog Alliance and Austin Diaper bank. It is our hope that the students will be inspired by the work being done by these organizations and want to actively participate themselves. Students also began making Rwanda slide shows on chrome books. Tomorrow is the 5th grade-led chapel, so we prepared by singing, reading Bible verses, praying, and rehearsing the chapel program. Please join us tomorrow at 8:05 in the Blue Chapel!
