2013 School Year

oporomboevaeThe 2013 school year began at the Christian School of Camiri last February 5th. The Lord has answered our prayers with registration to its maximum capacity: 300 students, a number we have not reached in many years. We praise the Lord for this opportunity and huge responsibility of touching young lives.

Education is an area the government has got involved more and more in recent years; one of the big changes and adjustments we had to make this year was finding an “oporombovae” (teacher) for a new subject in the curriculum, the Guarani (gwarae’ni) language, an indigenous language spoken mainly in Bolivia and one of the official languages of Paraguay.

Religion is subject also part of the program. There has been changes and attempts from the schools district for all to embrace the religion of the land rejecting the religion of the colonizers! Of course, while there is still freedom, the Christian School is all about the God-man Jesus Christ, not the religion, but the creator and savior who gave his life for the world.
