The 2014-15 school year is quickly coming to an end here at Hope Christian School. Our graduation date is Friday, May 29th at 7:00 pm. This time of year brings many mixed emotions for staff and students. We are thrilled about finishing another year of school and grateful to see our students developing academically, emotionally, physically, socially, and spiritually. However, we are sad because we will miss our senior as she goes off to college. We understand that this is a vital part of the growth process, and so, it is bittersweet.
As we look back on the year and how God has blessed us, we are truly amazed at how He takes care of His children each and every day. We are thankful that the Lord has allowed us to work with over 75 children this year. We have seen some of our children come to know the Lord as their Savior and many other children have made good spiritual decisions. We were able to rescue over 20 new children that we know are safe here at Hope. We are also grateful to see some of our children re-united with their families. As we look back on all the blessings of the year, we could not list them all. We are very appreciative to every donor, sponsor, volunteer, and visitor that has helped to make a difference in the lives of the children here at Hope. I would like to introduce our only 2014-15 graduate.
Hello, my name is Brittany and I am 18 years old, and I have been at Hope for the past 12 years. I first came to Hope when I was 5 years old. My parents went through a divorce, and my father was raising my brother, Michael, and I. My dad remarried and my step-mother did not love us and was abusive. My father put us in and out of Hope several times, and then the final time he placed us at Hope, he told us he never wanted to see or contact us again. However, the Lord had a plan and worked through all this to later allow us to be adopted by staff members of Hope. I am so thankful that God kept Michael and me together. We now have a new family that loves us and takes great care of us. I accepted the Lord as my Savior on April 4th, 2014. I am still not sure what the Lord wants me to do after I graduate. However, I am interested in the field of Dentistry and Criminal justice. Please pray for me as I prepare to go to college this fall and as I continue to seek the Lord’s provision and direction for my life.
We are so proud of our 2015 Kindergarten graduates for their hard work this year. Mrs. Patsy has helped them learn many things over the course of the year. They learned all 66 Books of the Bible and many Bible verses. They learned to add, subtract, count money, and tell time. They also learned the 50 States, the 44 U.S. Presidents, how to read, and to write cursive. They have learned many exciting things and are eager to be graduating to first grade. As always, we appreciate your continued prayers and support for the children!
