Student Profile #1

We're going to try to profile a new student each week to let you know more about our kids and how you can pray for their specific needs.


Nationality: Costa Rican

Speaks 2 Languages (English & Spanish) fluently and is decent in German.

Parents: Father works in International Relations and Mother works at VCS.

Christian's family are all believers. He has an older brother and sister as well as a younger sister.

Christian plays soccer and basketball and is in all Honors classes at VCS.

Prayer Requests:

-Christian's older brother is getting ready to graduate this year and possibly go to the States for school. They are very close and this will be hard on the family.

-Christian is in a position to be a real leader in his class. Pray that God will use people to affirm those leadership qualities and that Christian will show Christ to those in his grade.

-Pray that God will begin to show Christian how he wants to use him in the future. Christian is only a 10th grader but is beginning to think about what he will do for college and in his future.

Hey guys! Thanks for the student updates. I'm going to love these. This makes me feel much more a part of prayer for your students. Christian seems like a fun kid. Take care. We're making it with our almost 1 month old!

hey Thomas and Mollie, it's Chris Frank. I was looking online for your address and came across your blog. Wow - great job with the updates. Plus, it was SO good to see the pictures and video of staff retreat music (I love that song auf Deutsch) and Christian. I hear you deeply on the need for prayer and how it's easy to be negative, etc. Anne and I have and will keep praying for you guys - you are great for VCS. Hey to the boys too

Hey Thomas & Mollie - I like the new updates to the blog. Keep them coming. It was great seeing the two of you over the summer. Hopefully you'll be able to meet up with Kosa and Ann sometime. Talk to you later.

Hey guys! We enjoyed seeing you this summer. I guess we'll have to stay in touch through blogging now.

The Williams family has entered the blog world (bohemian.typepad.com/williamsfamilylife/). It's a pretty basic site now, but I plan to update pretty regularly. I like the videos you're using and may try to add those sometime soon.

I also launched our ministry's first ever blog today, familylifeculturewatch.com. Tell me what you think.

I'll be checking back to stay in touch. Y'all do the same.
