Some of the children that attend our Pritchard Campus come from homes where so much is going on, that sometimes you need to take a moment and count your blessings. Please pray for the teachers of this Faith Academy location on Pritchard! Teaching academics is only one part of their job. Teaching the children that come from homes filled with dysfunction and turmoil is not an easy task. On any given day, some of the high maintenance students can have an outburst that will lead to kicking, screaming, punching and hitting. At times a student is so out of control that I am called in to try and settle the student down.
Ministering to these troubled students day after day has to be a gifting that can only come from our Lord. I constantly pray for these teachers to have the courage, wisdom and perseverance to carry on. As difficult as it is to minister to these little ones, we have to believe that life changing seeds are being planted. We don’t know how long some of these students will remain in the sponsorship program; so it makes it so much more urgent that during the trying times, we continue to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Through Union Gospel Mission’s Adopt-A-Student program, we are bringing the little ones to Jesus. You too can be part of this valuable ministry for $50 a month or $600 a year. Please call Gilbert at 204.943.9904 ext. 306, and I will be happy to give you all the details. To God be all the Glory!
