This is my second semester of preschool at Immanuel Mission School, and I am encouraged! When I started the preschool program last fall, I had no idea how this year would go as I adjusted to a new school, a new culture, a new home, and a new climate. It has been exhausting, but I can see the Lord doing so much in my classroom and in my life. A verse that sums up how I’ve been feeling about the preschool program lately is Psalm 118:23, “This is the LORD’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes.”
It has been such a blessing to have Christy Love here this semester helping with preschool and kindergarten! We currently have 10 preschool students ages 3 to 5, plus a mom and a grandma who come nearly every day. Our preschoolers are an energetic, creative, independent bunch. They are a handful on the best of days, but it has been a joy to see them slowly but surely growing in responsibility, empathy, self-regulation, and an understanding of who God is and their relationship to Him.
Here are a few things you can pray about with me for the preschool program:
Understanding of the gospel and salvation for the preschoolers and their families
Academic, social, and emotional growth for preschoolers
