A couple Fridays ago ‘Art Club’ commenced under the enthusiastic direction of Miss Ligia, our beloved secondary teacher who continues to brave the untravelled ‘classroom’ waters. She had studied and practiced law prior to taking the rather large leap earlier this year to begin practicing a different kind of justice — the taming of 13 unruly teenagers with God’s love.
In addition to being the full-time 7th grade teacher, she has taken on the role of leading the weekly ‘Art Club,’ and the class’ kick-off a couple Fridays ago went phenomenally well. After organizing an in-class lesson on the primary and secondary colors, etc (a very basic topic but one that is unknown to the majority of youth from our rural neighborhood as they have never taken even an introductory art class before), she grabbed the white t-shirts, fabric paint and brushes and headed out to our front lawn with her Art Club participants to spend the afternoon decorating t-shirts (which will then be used as their ‘uniform’ for the club each Friday). Oh, and I believe there was some kind of glitter-filled balloon trap hanging from the ceiling of the classroom to begin the whole activity. Way to go, Miss Ligia!
Enjoy the photos several of our younger kids and I took during the first Art Club meeting…

How very nice! I so enjoy all your pictures! I trust Darwin is fully recovered from his injuries! The new art teacher looks lovely! Aubrey
I love having a glimpse of all you guys are doing. I think the Living Waters Ranch is an oasis and a Godsend for all who come there. I pray everyday for peace, healing, and protection for all of you. You are all an inspiration to me to improve my relationship with the Lord and to help others with joy. God’s blessings, Karen Oxner
