Another Step Towards Graduation/Otro Paso Hacia la Graduación

About this time each year in El Salvador, more than 89 thousand public and private high ReadingBookschool students who are about to graduate are required to take a national exam called the PAES (A Test for Learning and Aptitude). This year, the test will be given on October 10th and counts up to 25% of student’s final grade for the year.

Two of our girls at La Casa will be taking this test. It is evident that they are a bit nervous; you can see it in their faces. As the year comes to a close, they are eagerly anticipating their graduation day. They have begun looking for graduation dresses and talk about putting on that cap and gown and walk across the stage. They are attending Open IMG_8282Houses at local universities to determine their next step in life. However, they have also had to focus on preparing for this final exam. They have had preparation classes after school and have taken several practice tests. A lot weighs on this final exam.

We know these girls would appreciate your prayers on Wednesday. You can do it Silvia and Estrella!

  1. Dear Lord,
    We ask that you help Silvia and Estrella to remember all they have learned and studied for this test. Calm their nerves, give them a good night’s rest, help them to awaken refreshed, to eat a healthy breakfast that will fire up the brain cells and get them ready for their test. Lord we ask that you guide both girls through this process to the next step they need to take. Lord we know they trust you in all things but they are like the rest of us and the sin side of us still causes us to worry and be afraid. Help them to move beyond this and feel confident in all they know Lord. We give you thanks for both Silvia and Estrella, for La Casa and those there who are caring for them and the others, for the Powell family who has given their time and energy to help provide a safe Christian home with the help of many. Thank you for your love, grace and mercy! Amen
