LOOKING BACK AND LOOKING FORWARD

The 7.0 earthquake in Haiti on January 12, 2010 shook the country and hearts of its people. The earthquake was alarming with a loud bang, and the land rolling beneath us. If the earthquake happened just 15 minutes prior, the deaths at our schools would have been in the thousands. We had no knowledge of […]

This promotes unity and prevents students from not having proper clothing for school. The elementary students wear a yellow checked top and khaki bottoms. The sixth grade students wear a white […]

CELEBRATE OTHERS

Sitting outside and reading is one of my favorite things to do. There is a park near my house with two bridges that go over a small pond. The views and outdoor time is rejuvenating. I’ll enjoy a walk, and at the end, simply sit down and relax by reading. Often, I’ll read a chapter […]

Pastor Denis also oversees […]
