Page 2C August 7, 2019 RepOrter Taking a quick break to start devotion after doing some soccer drills, this picture was taken at the covered basketball court called, "La cancha Julian Aya- la Esperanza". In this photo are many of the Culebra island children and the Mary Persons students and adults who facilitated the sports camp this summer in Puerto Rico. i i ii! iiiiiiiiiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiii iiiii! By Katie Rowland Spanish teacher, Mary School Persons High Mary Persons Fellowship of Christian Athletes travelled to Culebra, Puerto Rico this summer to serve their community and spread the love of Jesus! For a week, student, staff, and parent volunteers from Monroe County organized morning sports camps that taught the island children skills in basketball, volleyball, soccer, American football and ultimate frisbee. As a part of the camp Mary Persons students organized and shared daily Bible devotionals and shared their faith and testimonies with the Culebra com- munity. In the afternoon they completed various light construction projects, such as sealing roofs. The group lived together in a church hos- td, cooked their own meals, worshipped together, served together and played together. This was an incredible trip driven by the desire of our Fellowship of Christian Athletes students to glorify the Lord to the ends of the earth! The Mission trip servants who travelled to Puerto Rico are: Hope Brooks, Mary Kate Jones, Anna Hightower, Bria Brindle, Emily Williams, ,: Emma Robinson, Ally Smith, Autumn Smith, Elizabeth Robinson, Julia Jenkins, : Bailey Niblett, Dawson Niblett, Zach But- ler, Colton Perkins, Payton Poland, Alex Poland, Madalynne Scott, Rachael Scott, , Mara Emami, Denise Emami, Cass Cassell, Jill Smith, Allen Smith, Katie Rowland, April Cassell and Jody Barfidd. ~e Birthdays & A ' nnlversarles Aug.7 1 89 The four local winners in Forsyth Exchange Club Austin Corbin Monroe County Superior the UDC essay contest, scholarships to Ben Mc- Gary & Judy Hay Court Judge Hal Craig Lauren Hopson, Meredith Mullah of Mary Persons denies a citizens' petition Tacy, Robert Brutz and and Lindsay Balkcom of to stop construction of Brian Wright, placed Monroe Academy.
