Our Prayer Ministry families for this week are

Wes and Linda Rhodes and their children Wyatt, Layne and Olivia; and Audra Rohweder and her children Alexander and Kim. Please keep these families and our school staff in your prayers this week.

We also pray for missionaries; Robin McCoy in Thailand and Tom and Debi Going in Japan.

We request prayers for Haylea Nicholes and the Lekai family at the sudden death of Haylea’s infant son, James. We grieve now, holding fast to the promise of our Savior that all believers will someday be reunited with Him.

Please continue to keep Mrs. Pam Johansen in your prayers as she had knee surgery in December. We pray for continued recovery for her return to school.

Thank You Parents’ Association and Families for the wonderful Christmas gifts you have shared with our teachers and staff. It is a privilege to care for your children and share the Gospel with them daily, but it is also very nice to be appreciated. Again, thank you!

5-8 Parents – As we start the second half of the year after Christmas, many of my art students need their markers re-supplied. Please ask about their crayons and black sharpie pens and other supplies as well. Thank you, Mrs. B
