Greetings!! This month we are afflicted by the loss of the very dear Anne GUINDO, mother of one our students, Amadimé GUINDO grade 9. The fullness of our consolation is the hope we have, for her being in Christ Jesus. At 3:30 AM one morning my friend Korka SAGARA knocked on my door asking me to join those who are to go dig the grave. When I was able to see clearly I was so surprised by the large number of new graves. Most of them were graves of babies and children. I made sure that others had the same observation as me. To my question a sad answer was given. So many kids are dying from malaria and typhoid; the graves by the hospital have even more children than this one. There seem to be so many sad things happening in this little town. Yet, we understand how God has protected and is protecting us in a place where fatal danger is ubiquitously permanent. We acknowledge your support in prayer for us.
The results for the second term were given to parents and students. In general they were good results even though there are some students who did not do well. The best students this year are Moustapha HAIDARA 9th grade, Aissata AYA 8th grade and Talata NIANGALY 7th grade. We praise God for what God has done in their lives and the growth and maturity they display.
This year 5 trainee students have arrived at Grace School for their internship. They are all Muslim but they like very much the Christian school and deliberately choose to come. We really enjoy working with them and they are true blessings to us.
The Diougodiè DOLO School team won the inter school soccer cup trophy for the 2013-2014 school year. They visited Grace School and encouraged our students to keep on working.
The students of grade 9 had a cooking class and they very much enjoyed the Arab couscous with their teacher Tite POUDIOUGO. After that the students of grades 8 and 7 had the same course to help them learn basic techniques in cooking to be helpful at home and for themselves.
We praise God for our former students for their good result in the different high schools they are at. I am proud of them in my physics class at the public school and when my colleagues tell me good things about them. Please keep praying for them so that they keep in their profound beings the life saving truths they learned while they were at Grace School.
God bless you for your prayers!
