March 15 was "Family Day" in João Pessoa. All four of the congregations joined to worship together, eat lunch, and fellowship. We also welcomed the new AME students and heard what the graduating class had to say about their experience in the mission field.
There were close to 130 present. Chris Smith and Pat Sheaffer, both directors of the AIM program in Lubbock, TX, were present for both the graduation as well as "Family Day". They were hot and sweaty in the tropical heat but seemed to be in paradise, seeing the AIM program established and working in another country.

· That each Christian may remain faithful and grow in maturity in Christ.
