It is an exciting time because as most of us know, with change, comes opportunity! The opportunity that we see is this… The roots have been established, and now with this transition of leadership we believe that the transition to maturity can begin.
For most of us change can be difficult, and it is no different here. For the students, saying goodbye to the Johnsons was difficult! There were lots of tears shed and some great sadness, but the next day we truly saw Joy come in the morning. As the students were able to share what they were feeling, it was amazing to hear Jeff speak about what the students meant to him as well, and I believe that turned into a huge breakthrough for some of the students as they were able to see that this wasn’t just a one way street. They were not just the students, but they were bringing about change and encouragement as well.
So here we are! A foundation has been laid, and a good one at that… The business part of the school is still being taught well! In fact as I am writing this I’m listening to them teaching about the differences between sole proprietorship and partnerships, incorporated and limited liability…
For us the journey begins, but for these students it continues! We believe that God is saying to build on the foundation that has been laid and now help them grow into maturity! This goes for both the ministry and business sides of the school!
As I told the students today… I don’t have it all, but I will give all I have… If they will make a commitment to grow, I will walk alongside them in the journey… with the goal of making the transitions to spiritual and physical maturity to live a lifestyle of excellence!
Transitions to maturity… A journey worth taking!
