Margaret Stockwell, Director of Anchor Education, says "The conference went extremely well, the parents appreciated our input and work with the children and have already decided some topics they want included in the next conference. They were ready to sign up for the next conference after only one day of this one. These are people working in isolated areas who need the help that Anchor Education can give to them and their children." She was accompanied by Angela Rees, an SVN volunteer.
All going well! At last the sun has come out - very wet / stormy Sunday to yesterday.....wellies rather than sleeveless dresses might have been a good idea! We have 23 lively teenagers 12 to 17 yrs - range of nationalities. They are interested in the activities we are doing with them and the parents appreciate being able to leave them with us for their conference slots. Two other ladies who have been with the conference in several occasions are with the 3 to 11 year olds. Carole came with a nasty cold which I have picked up but paracetamol / lemsip doing their job. Feels strange doing SVN work to be in a four star hotel .... but very nice! AEP people all very pleasant and interesting to learn about life in Albania.

Was the conference useful?
What would you like to see in another conference?
Ann Bielby and Isabel Wodrow will be travelling to Mozambique on Friday November 13th, returning on Sunday November 22nd.
Please will you pray as they travel and work with the children and their parents at the home school conference in northern Mozambique.
The conference will be led by the director of Anchor Education, Margaret Stockwell. Other members of the team are Jean Kawiecki and Zethu Mthenjane.
Please will you pray for:
Ann will be doing a session for parents about helping when learning is difficult and one about creative writing. And helping to assess children’s progress.
Isabel Wodrow will be looking after the younger children, aged 3- 10 years. Using deserts as the theme and using Godly Play material for teaching about the exile and the return and Jesus and John the Baptist. There will be opportunity for the children to experience a variety of arts and crafts and games.
The Godly play teaching guide for the session about the exile says “God’s presence is not here or there but everywhere, waiting. To be found. To find us."
Pray that we will experience this as we serve Him.
