4th Grade Class Outreach Buddies Visits Classroom
On Wednesday, May 9th, the Outreach Buddies for the fourth-grade class came and spoke at elementary chapel and then to the fourth graders in their classroom. For over fifteen years, Chris and Angie Jutte have served in Indonesia on the island of Papua. Chris works as an airplane mechanic for Wycliffe Bible translators. They came to the states on April 4th on furlough.
In chapel, the students thoroughly enjoyed the modern demonstration of the armor of God. In the classroom, the fourth graders sang a song in the Indonesian language and introduced themselves in Indonesian. Chris and Angie answered many questions and spoke how there are many varied ways of serving the Lord overseas. They then presented our classroom with a bark painted wall hanging.

Regardless of what may be going on, this is the day that you have made… and You want me to rejoice and be glad in it. You still love me and have a wonderful plan for my life. You can do anything and desire to show Yourself mighty and strong in me. I look to You, surrender anew and afresh to You, and make the choice, this day, to rejoice in You! AMEN!
