Czech-ing Our Prague-ress
Corpus 4 serving at the Christian International School of Prague
Life = Worship
How priceless is your love, Oh Lord!
People take refuge in the shadow of
your wings. They feast on the
abundance of your house; you give
them drink from your river of delights.
For with you is the fountain of life; in
your light we see light. Psalm 36: 5-9
In all that we say and do, we
~Not so foreign~ pray that the Lord will remind us
that we serve Him and Him
This month we all felt a little more at home, here in Prague. We alone. While we learn Czech
are figuring out transportation and shopping for groceries. We are and feel encouraged or
getting the swing of things at the school, already completing our 1st discouraged; while we minister
quarter and sending out report cards. Heidi and Valerie seem to be to the homeless; while we teach
transitioning well and are caught up in all of their classes. We are students; while we learn from
our students. We are most
building relationships with the students and we know that God is
thankful that we are able to serve
on the move in the Czech Republic. We found a church to serve the King, because of the death
alongside and are finding even more opportunities to minister with and resurrection of Jesus!

CZECH-ING OUR PRAGUE-RESS NOVEMBER 2010
From Fall to Winter NOV. 1st
Our Texas friends and supporters will
understand our fascination with the fluffy
white stuff heretofore unknown to us. By
November 29th we were dragging our feet NOV. 29th
through 6 inches of snow! The city is so beautiful
in the white. We will enjoy it while we can. But
we also remember our homeless “neighbors” who face a terrible
winter. Extra soup and coffee are easy to offer. We will continue to
give to the needy at
Discipleship & Evangelism
The interesting thing about CISP is that we have
a mixture of Christians and Non-Christians, 93 students from
34 different countries. We are seeing fruit in both areas. One
of our students is openly atheist, but we see changes in him as
a result of his time here. He sees how we genuinely love and
care for each other here. He knows there is something
different about us. Pray that the Lord will soften his heart
and that he will be saved. “By this all people will know that
you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
CISP does allow us to be off for the American
Thanksgiving Day celebration. Being away from
our family this time of year was a little challenging.
Especially for the girls. But the Lord blessed us
with “Aunts” and “Uncles” here and we enjoyed a
time of thanks and fellowship with dear friends here
in Prague! God is Good!
Light in the Dark
The days are very short here. The picture to the left
was taken around 4 in the afternoon. Many people
here struggle with darkness depression. Please pray
with us that the enemy would not have his way in the
thoughts and hearts of our friends and colleagues.
“We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against
the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey
Christ,” 2 Corinthians 10:5
CZECH-ING OUR PRAGUE-RESS NOVEMBER 2010
This month we celebrated Valerie’s and Vincent’s
birthday. Valerie enjoyed making pizzas with her
friends at a local restaurant. Vincent enjoyed
Thanksgiving with friends and the gift from his
mother—a night at the movie theater. The movie was
even in English! Phew. Our Czech is improving but
we are not “there” yet!
Thank you for
