Some of them have been over-seeing progress at their school for 16 years now and they continue to be the primary vision carriers for the schools. We felt it was important to acknowledge this dedication and also to sew into them before this new school year begins. So last week we took them away for a couple of days retreat. We had Don and Cecilia Price visiting, pastors from the UK, so they came to minister to and encourage the directors.
It was a really appreciated time of fellowship for us all and a chance to recharge before the onset of the new school year. Next week the directors will, in turn, pass on this encouragement as they lead vision days with the staff at each of the schools. They will spend time reflecting on the successes of 2016 and praying about the plans for 2017.
