We have a dynamic group of ladies who will be joining us this summer. They arrived on June 4 and have already added so much life an joy in our home. They will be helping at the school, with groups, and one will be a nanny for our director and his family. We will be their host mom and dad for the summer and we are thrilled. Please be praying for them as they minister to Makarios students, groups, the community, and a host of other people throughout the summer.
Lainey- I will be a senior at TCU studying political science. This will be my fourth time here with Makarios and I am looking forward to what God has in store for the summer. In the fall I am headed to Washington DC for a semester. Random fact about me is that I am obsessed with dinosaurs and Star Wars.
Allison - My family is from Germantown, TN but I went to undergrad and grad school in Birmingham. The Lord has been very present to me in this season of my life; more than ever before. He has led me here to the DR and then to Dallas in the fall for next year. I look forward to this exciting adventure. A random fact about me is this is my first time out of the country.
Erica- I am from Houston, TX but currently live in Austin where I go to college. I am a junior at the University of Texas where I am studying corporate finance. A fun fact about me is that I am a longhorn to the core and I have a longhorn named Sadie that is pregnant! I was here in January and worked with the kindergarten class that I will be teaching this summer. I fell in love with the people here and God has been faithful to give me more time to serve this summer.
Angie- I am usually a third grade teacher in Vancouver, WA. I also lead worship at my church for the youth program. I am excited to be in the DR and looking forward to working with Makarios students. It has been exciting to see God open doors to bring me here this summer. My random fact is I have a dog named Bella.
Our summer is off to a great start! Our first group of the summer arrived on June 9 and we can't say enough great things about University Presbyterian and Westminster Presbyterian from Austin. What an amazing blessing they have been! We'll share more about their week in our next blog post.
Thanks for your partnership...and joining us on the journey.
