If My People.....

We are so excited about this new school year.  We have had sinking enrollment numbers for several years and have had to fight discouragement and even some fear that we would not have enough children to be sustainable.  However, we laid it all before the Lord and brought our petitions to Him and our faithful Father has brought us to this good place.  The scriptures tell us in 2 Chronicles 7:14 that God has said, "If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and I will forgive their sin, and heal their land."  We have prayed, hopefully you have prayed and we have humbled ourselves to follow the will of our God WHEREVER it may lead, and God has healed this little piece of land.  We give all the glory to Him. Thank you our Father, for your goodness to gift us so many children this year.  We promise to do our very best to teach and train them in the Word and to point them to Jesus.  We are filled with joy. The theme I have given the teachers for the year is about joy.  The scripture you see when you walk in our door is our theme.  "This is the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it."  I have challenged our teachers to live in joy this year.... to not let anyone or anything steal their joy for they are children of the almighty God who gives joy in all things.  I challenge you to do the same.  Joyful, joyful, we adore THEE. 

That is all....
