The teachers are back in class getting ready for the 2018-19 school year. There are only a few weeks of vacation left for the students; where did the summer go? I have been speaking to parents who are anxious to get their children back into the school routine. The inner-city can be a dangerous place when one has too much time on their hands. With the multiculturalism, different religions and philosophies, it is very easy to stray away from the cross if you are not rooted in it.
Proverbs 14:12 reads "there is a way which seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death." Every home visit the message shared is that Jesus is the answer to all our troubles. Jesus says that we are the salt of the earth, the world says salt is not good for us. So much confusion in today’s fast paced society that if you are not focused on the cross, you’re an easy target for the evil one.
All of our students and family members have a tough go at life and need all the prayers they can get; don’t we all need as much prayer as possible? It will take a few weeks for students to get back into the swing of things and adjust to a new school year. The teachers are preparing for the spiritual battle that is coming and we ask you to continue to pray for all of our students and families.
