Our team of 18 Turning Pointe dancers, parents, and teachers are preparing to travel to El Salvador June 6-13, 2017 to share the love of Christ through dance, drama, and personal testimonies. This is something so unique to our studio because we get to use both our faith and our gifts in action! We have the opportunity to take all of those lessons at the ballet barre, all of the years of technique we've learned, and all of those life lessons in perseverance and flexibility and put those into practice by performing in the heat and humidity sometimes on dirt and slippery tile, and by looking into the eyes of a child and telling them that they matter and God loves them.
To prepare our hearts for this mission, we recently participated in a day of low ropes to bond as a team and learn about communication, trust, and consideration. It was amazing to see how the team bonded, learned each others names (including middle names), and worked together to be good leaders and good listeners.
We want to say THANK YOU to our Turning Pointe family and friends for sending us and for supporting our team financially and through prayer. We will be posting pictures and blog updates from our travels and experiences right here on this page and hope that you all will follow and be encouraged! Please be praying for safety and health for our team. Pray for hearts to be open and lives to be changed. Pray for boldness and courage in each of our students. Gloria a Dios!
