Praise & Prayer
Praise/Prayer
• Beth was able to have a good interview with a possible principal,
but after prayer and discussion with his wife, they decided not
to apply to serve at ECA for the upcoming school year. He wants
to finish up more studies first. Beth also had two different Skype
interviews with a possible school psychologist and a possible
MS Bible teacher. Pray that God gives wisdom as those two
candidates are reviewed and move forward in the process. Beth
was able to speak to a group of teens and encourage them to
consider missions involvement as they plan for the future.
Prayer
Elementary
• For our 11th and 12th graders taking the Pre-Saber 11 and Saber
11 exams this Sunday. Pray for wisdom and understanding, and
that they will remember what they have studied.
• For Zayde López (4th grade aide) who took this week off to
help her parents with medical errands and to take care of them.
Zayde asks for prayer for additional strength from the Lord,
and for her health.
• For Flavio Uribe’s (HS math teacher) knee. He needs surgery
ASAP but it has not been easy to schedule it with the EPS. He
needs therapy before the surgery.
• For Julián Ramírez’s (9th grade) grandmother Martha González
who has cancer. Julián’s mom will be taking care of her in Peru
from March 14 to April 29. Martha will be scheduled for her 4th
chemo session this week.
Amazon Mission Trip
This Thursday our mission team will be in the Amazon! Everything is almost ready for them to fly to Leticia.
Pray
• For the Lord’s protection over each team member (health, safety, unity, and spiritually). There is
evidence of a battle with evil forces.
• For God to open the hearts of people and restrain spiritual oppression in Guanabara III, the small
Brazilian village where they will be serving
• For Juan Carlos Castellanos, Robbie Becker, and Yolanda Cardozo in charge of the group
• For unity and good relationships within the team (students, staff & medical brigade)
• For the medical/dental brigade
• For the construction project as the team converts the dirt floor in the missionary’s home to a concrete one.

A Note from the Peoria Team
From day one, since arriving at the airport, we have felt very welcome. Every place we have gone, we’ve felt appreciated and
loved, almost like we were celebrities. All students, teachers, and leaders have made us feel at home, gifting us with wonderful
food, strong hugs, bright smiles, and lots of dance lessons. Even through our team’s broken Spanish, we were accepted and
understood. Basically, Bogotá is a beautiful city full of beautiful people.

Elementary Chapel
The theme for 4th quarter chapels in Upper Elementary is “Do what is right,
because it is right, even when no one is looking.” This week students were challenged
to build the habit of doing what is right always, no matter who is around, to grow
into men and women who will stand against corruption and selfishness, and change
their world.
Lower Elementary continues studying the theme of responsibility through
the parable of the talents. This week in small groups, students examined the heart
attitude of each of the people who received talents in the parable.
Second grade is learning all about water! We have
made our own water filters and the students are excited
to get more involved. Our class has begun to make
magnets and sell them to raise money for Blood:
Water Mission, which is a grassroots organization
that empowers communities to work together against
the HIV/AIDS and water crises in Africa.
What can your family do?
2nd Grade
Water Project
1. Pray for those who do not have access to clean water.
2. Talk about the importance of serving and loving others.
3. Buy magnets that the 2nd graders have made to raise
money and awareness of clean water.
The magnets do not have a set price, but you can get one
with any donation. The magnet will serve as a reminder of
the difference you are helping make in the world!
To order a magnet, send in your donation to the school
office in an envelope with Megan Yohe / Water Project
on the outside. We will be sure to deliver the magnet to your
child at school. If you have any questions, contact Megan
Yohe, the 2nd grade teacher, at [email protected]
Also, if you would like to learn more about Blood: Water
Mission or donate to our class page online, the link is:

Thank you for supporting the 2nd graders at El Camino

Part 4
Ievgen: Cuando lo sacamos del orfanato, decía… ¿Recuerdas lo que
decías? Temía que no lo aceptáramos, y dijo, ¡por favor, llévenme!!! Haré
todo lo que me digan que haga. Limpiaré, barreré, lavaré los platos. ¡Haré
todo lo que me digan que haga…pero por favor, acéptenme en su familia!!!
Narrador: Los Isaiev creyeron que ya habían completado su familia, sin
embargo Dios tenía otros planes.
Svetlana: El servicio social me llamó y me dijo: Svetlana, enviaremos dos
niñas al orfanato de tu ciudad, no te gustaría ir a verlas, ¿qué dices?
Hija: Hace tres años mis padres vinieron por mí. Estaba muy feliz de que
me aceptaran.
El Testimonio de los Isaiev de Ucrania
Después de 23 horas viaje, dos escalas, atravesar el Atlántico y recorrer 11.560 kms, lograron llegar
de Kiev, Ucrania los Isaiev. Ievgen, Svetlana, Alexandra y Anna llegaron sin contratiempo alguno.
Les invito a leer lo de abajo. Es cortico y hay una foto de la toda la familia: Papá, mamá, y once
mucharejos.
Sí usted conoce a una persona que esta adicta a algo, esa persona debe escuchar esta historia. La
entrada es sin costo. Invítelo y acompáñelo.
El siguiente video corto explica lo que deseo comunicarle: http://goo.gl/EFmFOo
Part 3
La historia continua
… un sueño que involucraría la adopción.
Svetlana me dijo: “adoptemos a un pequeño, pero no uno normal”.
Le dije, ¿a qué te refieres cuando dices que no un niño normal? ¿A uno de la luna?
Ella dijo, no..., uno con el mismo diagnóstico tuyo.
Y entonces le dije, pues, bien, hagámoslo.
La enfermedad que Ievgen había visto en su vida como una maldición, sería el camino que daría
un amor profundo por cada uno de los huérfanos. Pronto los Isaiev le darían la bienvenida a su
primer hijo VIH positivo. Poco después de eso, llegó otro pequeño.
Narrador: Hoy la familia Isaiev tiene 11 hijos. Nueve de los cuales son
adoptados, ocho son VIH positivos, dos de sangre (sanos) y el último
adoptado es Yuri, que llegó el 25 de diciembre de 2015. No es de extrañar
que Ucrania los haya reconocido como héroes por hacer lo que muchos
nunca hubieran considerado hacer. Dios puede cambiar radicalmente la
vida de las personas, de drogadictos al orgullo de Ucrania.
Ievgen: No pensamos en ninguna recompensa. Solo decidimos hacer lo
que nuestros corazones nos decían que hiciéramos. Decidimos enfrentar
el problema para combatirlo. No fue por ningún galardón o título. Solo
hicimos lo que estaba en nuestros corazones.
Svetlana: Solo puedo decir una cosa; Si caminas con Dios y le dices sí, él le
concederá los deseos de tu corazón.
