I stared at the blank screen for a long time before I finally gave up and asked for help. I asked Kiana, my assistant, “I’m working on the Helping Hands update. What exactly happened on campus in March?” She laughed and said, “Ms. Beth, Phone Campaign!!! We weren’t here in March.” I’m so glad she said that because I was starting to worry about my memory as I was drawing a complete blank on campus activities.
The Phone Campaign is the entire world of Development in March. I am so thankful for all the prayers you have offered up for this campaign and for the financial situation of Shults-Lewis. The Phone Campaign was a great success! THANK YOU!!!
As I checked around with the houseparents and teachers, apparently I missed quite a bit of campus activities. Mrs. Terhune had an awesome PI Day celebration. (And by the way, she did not save any for the traveling Development Department!)
We had a college group from Arkansas visit. I blamed them for the four inches of snow that fell that day. They spent their day preparing Change Cans for mailing and their evening making Phone Calls for the Phone Campaign. Between the cans and the calls, we were able to fire up the grill and they enjoyed dinner and volleyball with all of the kids.
I am very excited as I look over the summer schedule and see so many more activities and groups visiting. Feel free to come visit anytime!! I’d love to show you around.
As always, be praying for our need of houseparents! We have a waiting list for kids. Pray diligently for mission minded houseparents to come our way.
And as I know you do, pray for our children. On top of that list, be sure to be praying for Banita and Pandora who will be graduating in May! They have overcome so much in their time with us and we are so excited about God’s plans for their futures!
