Well, the year is coming to a close already, and this is our last Eagle for the school year. By having two months of virtual learning, the days have passed by more quickly than normal. Even so, I wanted to bring our thoughts back to the theme of the year, IMAGINE, and our year verse, “God is able to do far more than we could ever ask for or imagine.” Well, God sure has done something this year that we never could have imagined! But if we look beyond the COVID situation, God really did work in and through us this year.
If you stop by the school, you will see the new modular classrooms now installed in the school’s parking lot. They will be fully functional for us to begin using in August. In addition, the building committee has continued to meet with the architects to finalize room placement and size, as they begin preparing to present our design to the authorities for approval. The rezoning of the property is still in process, with early signs being that everything is moving along as planned. Discussions with different financial institutions are encouraging, and donations toward the project have started to come in.
You may not be aware of everything that has been going on behind the scenes, but some very important steps have been made toward the realization of the new building. This reminds me of the fact that God is always at work, oftentimes behind the scenes. Even if I can’t see Him at work or I am oblivious to the obvious signs of His working in my life, the truth is that God is ever-present and doing far more than I could ever ask for or IMAGINE!
This summer, my prayers are with you – prayers for safety and provision; prayers for guidance and comfort. So, for everyone here at ICSV, we sign off for the year. We will see you on Wednesday, August 26, our first day of the 2020-2021 school year! We will continue to communicate with you as the government makes decisions looking forward, so please be sure to check your email during the summer. We will miss you more than you will ever know.
Because of His Faithfulness,
Sharon Brobst, EdD
