This past week was a big one for Mission Amatongas and the secondary school. We had two Parents' Days, one for the entire school and one for our boarders. Our parents got the chance to see the school, stay updated and receive their kids' grades. And of course everything involves singing and dancing! The entire school also gathered for a large assembly outside on a perfect day. There is always something happening in Amatongas.

We were thrilled to receive new visitors from Spain last week! Br. Cristóbal and six of his students will be joining us for the next 3 weeks. They've already started painting our new girls dorm, played in an official futeball match, and our boarders are enjoying getting to know them. We're excited to see the great things they do here during their stay! More to come from this group...

We give a huge amount of thanks to our friends at the Ruckstuhl Foundation for providing us the opportunity to construct a dorm for girls. A new roof, bathroom, shower room and 10 new bunk beds and lockers were provided through a grant from the Ruckstuhl Foundation in Baton Rouge, La. Twenty girls will be moving into the new dorm for the 2017 school year. There is still work to be done, of course, as we now start cleaning, painting, installing new ceramic floor and drop ceiling in the dorm. Our work here never seems to end, but it has been blessed by God.

We love our volunteers in Amatongas! We give much love and thanks to Matt Adler who arrived with the CLP group, but will remain here for the next 5 weeks. Of course Matt wasn't in the pictures in the last post because he was the official photographer. Stay tuned for many more pictures from Matt, or Mateus, his name in Portuguese.
