HIS

Image
From early morning when he gets up to go meet guys at the gym; to late at night when he works on his assignments for his last few college courses (or ALL night when he is traveling to clear the container); and all the hours in between, Attah has been BUSY! 

Getting the daycare registered for official start up...
Brainstorming ideas for expanding the gym business/ministry in this crowded, sprawling city...
Co-teaching kids class during assemblies...
Supervising the Junior/Senior High Learning Centers (including leading devotions and teaching one-on-one and helping students make graduation plans)...

Completing his own education...
Leading Bible time with our family...
Plus heading up special music for evening assemblies (sorry, no picture!), clearing the shipping container (more on that later), and so many more little things from day to day!  He is diligent and excited about the opportunities for service and pray God continues to give good health to keep going!
