Life is never dull in Mozambique. The last month of school is always filled with programs and of course, graduation. This year, we had nine seniors, and the ceremony was uplifting and very honoring to the Lord. We are so proud of all our graduates over the years.
In July, we hosted the first ever CAM School graduate reunion at our home. Our first graduates were in 1998, and all the graduates from the first ten years are scattered around the world, and none are living in Mozambique. During graduation, we discovered that several of our graduates were back in Mozambique visiting their families. We decided to have a gathering, and there were 20 graduates from 2008, 2010, 2014-2018. It was great to hear from them as they shared their stories and experiences after CAM and gave helpful advice to our recent 2018 graduates.
Although school was out for the break in June and July, we kept busy. These are the weeks where we prepare for the new school year which started August 1. Larry was busy overseeing the needed repairs, painting, and some improvements with new sidewalks. Of course there are other “emergencies” that take lots of time, and we are thankful to the Lord as He continues to guide and direct us at CAM. One of those interruptions was Susan having gallbladder surgery on June 11. It slowed her down for a few weeks, but she is doing really well now.
Susan was busy finding new teachers and working with one of our CAM graduates who is on staff now helping to prepare for the long and tedious process of school accreditation. He is also filling in as a teacher in the sciences until our new teacher from Northern Ireland arrives this fall (spring in Mozambique).
Pray for us as we seek wisdom for this next school year and beyond for CAM school.
