COVID-19 – A word we are all tired of hearing. It has invaded our lives and intruded on everything we do. As the world tries to find its “new normal”, the staff at Shults-Lewis would like to send out a HUGE thank you.
We thank all of the people who have been on the frontlines dealing with this day after day; trying to keep everyone calm and giving us hope.
We thank everyone in education who have worked tirelessly to get our kids through the rest of the school year, graduate our seniors, and work even harder to prepare all students for the fall.
We thank everyone who has transitioned to working from home so our businesses can continue to operate.
In general, we want to thank everyone out there for everything you have done to help each other during COVID-19. “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” –John 15:12
COVID-19 was not the only struggle we at Shults-Lewis had to face these past few months. For those of you who were unaware, our beloved friend and coworker, Beth Frump passed away on April 5th due to natural causes. Beth was the face of Shults-Lewis and loved our kids with a passion. Shults-Lewis would like to thank all of you out there who sent cards of encouragement, called to check on us, or made donations in memory of Beth. We needed you and, as always, you were there for us.
The Development Team is working together to fill some very big shoes (or to those who really knew her well, flip flops). And even though we will never be able to BE Beth, we can certainly follow her Christian example of hospitality and unconditional love.
So, again, we say thank you. Continue to pray for our agency, this mission, and most importantly, our kids.
Stay safe. Stay healthy.
