These are the notes from the second assembly taken down by Harold (15 years) and translated by Betsy (up there in years) not in it's entirety however to spare you some of the more tedious details.
The meeting was held on the 23rd of April, 2014 at Jericho Villa at 7:30pm in the living room of the main building. It was an ordinary assembly with the following agenda:
Praise and Worship
Roll call of members present
Reading of the minutes of last meeting
New Business: Captain America (this is the funny part)
Rivers versus Stagnating ponds (the not so funny part)
The meeting started with prayer and then several of the leaders tried to sing a song by Dante Gebel about being a river and not a stagnant pond for the Lord but it was too difficult for the guitar players to play it so they just sang some" normal" worship songs.
After roll call, Harold read the minutes from last month's assembly meeting. There was much laughter.
Then Miss Keydy gave her report about the school. The kids at the Elementary School and High School are learning and the classes are going well with only a few of the children presenting tantrums now and then but on the whole things are under control.

that the kids are asking for far too many snacks and when she scolds them, some of them walk away with their noses in the air. She reports that others are wanting to help too much in the kitchen.

1. Have initiative

He reported on the different boys under his supervision and how they were doing in the three areas. Some were doing better than others and only one boy was excelling in all three areas.

The director of the Villa (Elvia) then brought up some new business. It seemed that brother Caleb (who is 4 years old and the youngest member of the family) had asked if all the inhabitants of the Villa would now call him "Captain America". Eduardo responded by stating that in order to wear the title "Captain America" a person would need to be respectful, and not lie or cry frequently which were activities which were very prominent in Caleb's life at present.

The director then commented on the fact that rivers need to be flowing outward and that part of our vision is to flow outward to reach others avoiding a stagnant pond scenario. She then commented on how God had opened up the doors for Carmen and Lizel to give their testimonies and evangelize in Belize with the Princess Warriors. She related that she has decided to begin the necessary steps to get passports (with the guidance of the Holy Spirit) for those whom God is preparing to minister in other countries.
The meeting was then ended with prayer.
