"Faith: Sure and Certain!"
"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." Hebrews 11:1
Faith in our Lord is something we have to have as Godís people to help us make it through the day. The challenges become overbearing. The pressures are enormous. The focus of how we respond gets distorted. So through it all we hang on to what we are unable to see but are convinced exists, and that is our Lord Jesus Christ.
We have been blessed with an incredible enrollment. We are currently at 226 children. Last year we ended the year with 189. While that increase of 37 children is awesome, let me share something else with you. Of our 189, 46 children left from Preschool and grades K-8. That means that we in reality began at 143 students. In reality God has blessed us with 83 new children! What a blessing! Faith is sure and certain!
We have embarked on a new course for our Preschool and Before and After School Care. Mrs. Sandy Rosenwinkel is our director. We have reexamined our fee structure and will now have a coordinated curriculum for our children. We have hired 7 new people to work with Before and After School Care. We welcome Mrs. Cindy McGraw as our Before School teacherís aide. We welcome Mrs. Danette Evans as our mid-day teacherís aide. We welcome Mrs. Midge Leczinski, Mrs. Christine Bentkowski, Ms. Allison Cizmar, Mr. Chris Evans, and Mr. Nick Palmer as our after school teacher aides. What a great group! What a tremendous team! What a blessing! Faith is sure and certain.
Mrs. Casey Pflughoeft has departed our school to have another blessed baby from our Lord and to spend time with her family. We have been blessed with tremendous new additions to our faculty. We have hired Mrs. Jaime Smith is our new Resource Teacher. We have also hired Mrs. Marijo Dittrich is our new Art Teacher. What a blessing! Faith is sure and certain!
Mrs. Schultz and I would like to thank you all for your prayers and support during this very uncertain time. We are at present waiting for the Oncologist to set the date for her surgery. We have hired Mrs. Michelle Cowan to serve as our Long Term Substitute. What a blessing! Faith is sure and certain.
GOD HAS WORKED MIRACLES AT OUR SCHOOL. We give Him thanks and praise. We honor Him and exalt
His name. As we were challenged and worried 2 years ago with a decline in enrollment, He and He alone has worked this miracle for our church and school. What an answer to our prayers. What a blessing! Faith is sure and certain!
