I (Emily) thought it was time for a little family time…or update on how the Ambergs doing.
Now keep in mind I (Emily) am writing this for him, so you might see this section a little different later on.
Adam recently celebrated the 100th day of school! It’s a milestone in elementary school not only for the students but also for the teachers! We can officially begin counting down to the last day of school! Don’t get me wrong, Adam really loves his job! Teaching first grade this year has given him more opportunities to see children really come alive…specifically in the area of reading. His goal by the end of the year is to have 13 of his 17 children proficiently reading. Given the children’s background and where they started, this is a huge task! He’s already very close to this goal and it’s only February! I’m personally so proud of him for going to school so diligently and consistently pouring into these children’s lives.
The spring is the busiest time of the year at Antioch Community Church. It doesn’t matter what department you work for, the amount of projects you have going immediately doubles (at least!) once the new year comes. And this year has been no different!
I have been given the task of organizing our efforts to market our discipleship school – Antioch Discipleship School (previously known as Elevate). It’s been a challenging project as basically everything about marketing is new to me, but the journey has been invaluable. I work with a great team of people and have the incredible support of my husband! This morning they are announcing the schools at church – our first step. I’m relieved, to say the least, that today has finally arrived! Now begins the phone calls and emails from prospective students for next year!
This summer, Adam and I will be leading a trip with the night school to India! We couldn’t be more excited about this trip! This will be Adam’s first time to see India and I’m just itching to go back! The focus of our trip is to use social justice outlets like medical care, sex trafficking organizations, and education as an avenue to share the Gospel. Our team is made up of a surgeon, a nurse, multiple teachers, a few women passionate about ending slavery, a man who works in the inner city of Waco and lots of people who love Jesus! It’s the perfect team for this trip! Here they are:
We would be happy to share more about this trip with you if you’d like. You can leave a comment on this post and we’ll get back with you via email.
