We also made great strides this week on the Paraguay Inclusion Project. With each school we visit and each teacher and administrator we talk to, we are developing a better understanding of the ‘reality’ here in the schools. Classrooms are overcrowded (30-40 children per classroom). Many teachers do not have the experience or training needed to meet the diverse needs of children coming from backgrounds of poverty, abuse, neglect, etc. Imagine adding a child with a disability to that mix! It has been a challenge that, frankly, most schools have not been eager to take on. We are reminded daily that this is a God-sized project… and that what would be impossible for man is NOT impossible for God!
Inspiration this week came from a leadership conference with John Maxwell. Select leaders from Paraguay were invited to attend and were challenged to spark transformation within the country of Paraguay. It was an incredible opportunity to be able to attend and we pray Miracle 139 will be one of these change makers in the country of Paraguay!
