[spacer height=”20px”]A team of eight NFE Impact Team members flew to the Ixil on August 21, 2017.[spacer height=”20px”]The team is praying for and encouraging junior and senior high students at Nicolas Christian School, and presenting information about DNA structure, hydropower, accounting, computers, lessons on frequency and amplitude, the physics of sound, gas laws and math.
The team will also meet with students to discuss AlaTeen, a US based 12 step program to support children of alcoholics.
As in the US, there are students attending our school whose families suffer from the scourge of alcoholism. We hope to explore the level of interest in developing an AlaTeen program at Nicolas Christian School.
July Impact Team Activities
The team and Nicolas Christian School will also sponsor a regional teacher professional development workshop and approximately 100 educators are expected for that event. The July team hopes to visit La Bendicion, La Esperanza, Villa Hortencia 1, Cajixay, Belen and San Nicolas.
July Impact Team Members
Traveling with the team will be Bill Safstrom, Heidi Reynolds, Becci Merritt, Gretchen Hawley, Hank Wysong, Cathy Bachmann, Albert Naranjo and Eastside Academy graduate Phebe Martinez. BelPres members on the trip include Becci, Cathy, Gretchen and Albert. Bill attends Evergreen Covenant Church. Phebe attends City Church and Heidi attends Menlo Park Presbyterian. This will be a first NFE trip for Hank, Cathy, Albert and Phebe. Please keep the team in your prayers!
