It was exciting to witness the graduation of 24 students, who are from the Paĩ Tavyterã, Mbya Guarani, Ache, and Ava Guarani ethnic groups as well as 3 Paraguayans. A member organization of the Strategic Alliance that Mike is currently coordinating was responsible to bring this three-year Bible program to completion.
