Our family is doing well here at Bible School!

Thank you so much for praying & partnering with us!

Reece is thriving as a Freshman here at Bible School. He has amazing friends, is loving studying the Word, and has great stories from his job as a public school bus driver. He doesn’t get enough sleep because of all the homework plus endless social opportunities. 🙂 We miss having him home, but could not be happier for him in every way.

Clark is maturing into a godly young man who is respectful, loyal, caring, and very wise. He is acing school, loves playing guitar, studying martial arts, and is just about to get his drivers license! He does miss his brother as they are best friends, but the 3 of us have begun new family traditions as a three-some. We are enjoying this year together before he gets a job this summer when he is 16!  …So much change for poor Mom!

Dave & I are racing at the pace of 18-22 year olds!

The activities around here are never-ending and we pick and choose how many we can be involved in.

  • We love our girls/guys dorm family who we spend extra time with. We make time for a lot of one-on-ones.
  • Dave is a leader over the teaching team, and is needing 2 new teachers since a couple retired. The load on the few is heavy right now.
  • We get a front-row seat to the students’ growth, which is a testament to God’s Word being active through classes, dorm life, friendships and everyday life. God is at work, and the beautiful lives here continue to encourage us every day!

Thank you for your love & prayers. We are so thankful to be here!!
Dave, Kim, Reece & Clark Field

He also serves as an example of our theme verse of loving God and neighbor.

November 2018
New York is launching a major assault on all pro-life positions, including ethical medical professionals, pregnant women, and Pregnancy Resource Centers. Allegedly petrified that the newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh might help the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, Governor Cuomo signed a statement committing to pass abortion expansion legislation. Read More
Sofia, a young, working mother of a two year old, came to CompassCare, clearly apprehensive. She nervously unfolded her story to her nurse. How she and her longtime boyfriend have a child together but recently have been “drifting apart.” How she is pregnant and unsure who the father is.  Read More
Thanks to your generosity, CompassCare paid off a 10-year mortgage in just 20 months, freeing more money to serve more women and save more lives!
