Not to be mistaken for a couple, these two individuals are a welcome new addition to the ACE team. We’ve asked Arlene to share about her role with ACE in this newsletter (See Arlene’s article here.) It’s been a fun experience to watch Arlene fulfill many roles living at the Campus. She’s not only housemother to Alvana, a second story student living with us, but also a pet owner, cook, help to our local administration staff, and a friend to all.
D’Vaun came to us as ACE was wrapping up the summer, and he is full of vigor and excitement over his new position in St. Mary. We are excited to see how this young man, a graduate from Jamaica Theology Seminary in Ministry with a minor in early childhood counselling, will grow into his role as a Child Sponsorship Coordinator. D’Vaun is in training for the next six months. He’s enjoyed the American summer volunteers, and now he’s growing fast in his role as ACE develops. The miry course of personal growth and human development is similar. Whether our days are marked by victory or by crisis, by progress or the call to turn around and try again, the Spirit goes with, reinforcing that God has been there all the time. Welcome, D’Vaun….grow well!
