I have found a curriculum called Firm Foundations and it goes from creation to revelation. The Cabecar people learn much better by telling stories and this curriculum comes with all the helps needed, I will use the Children's Spanish version for them as many of them do not have a higher education level. Please pray with me for God's provision in purchasing this curriculum, it runs around $80.00. I will begin, God willing in September. I plan on going to the reservation, where we have class once a month the day before and spending the night there to do Bible study and some art projects with the woman and then the women who come will be there for the class the next day. They will be more refreshed as some of them walk 8 hours to get to class.
This is such an incredible opportunity and I am so blessed to have the support of Judith and Cynthia, the Two Doctors I work with as well as the women in the program. God is knitting all our hearts together and it's beautiful. The way each one of us who teaches is gifted in different ways truly show the beauty of unity in the body of Christ.
"My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ,"Colossians 2:2 They have been so loving, kind and patient with my Spanish and God is blessing this whole program. It was birthed out of God's heart and is based on being created in God's own image, so Bible study and who we are in Christ is so important. These women have the opportunity to be salt and light to their own people.... My friend and fellow missionary who has been serving the Cabecar Indians along with her family for many many years has told me that she would like to help me with the Bible study and even teach some in Cabecar. This will also be a great help for me as I am hopeful to become conversational in their language.
I had the pleasure of hosting the women at the outpost again a couple months ago for some teaching and a mini retreat weekend.Our home church SMIC, had some men there working on our house and got to meet the women! enjoy the photos of these beautiful women and please join me in prayer as the Word goes forth. Please pray with me that God will give me the tongue of a poet (a Spanish one preferably..lol) and the heart of the Father as I step out in faith.
"And it will come about in the last days
That the mountain of the house of the Lord
Will be established as the chief of the mountains.
It will be raised above the hills,
And the peoples will stream to it.
Many nations will come and say,
“ Come and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord
And to the house of the God of Jacob,
That He may teach us about His ways
And that we may walk in His paths.”

They help me to be grateful for the small pleasures in life!
