“Bits and Pieces of Info to Make Life on the Ranch Easier to Manage”

Spotlighting Students and Volunteers
This little section of the newsletter is one of my last opportunities to say thank you for all you have done to make this year so wonderful! I know I have expressed to many of you several times that I did not think I would be able to make it through another year of teaching because there have been so many difficult responsibilities placed on my plate. However, God knew what He was doing, and He gave me the most incredible group of parents I have ever had for any year! You have been wonderful this year, and the blessings of prayer, encouragement, supervision and chaperone offers, weekly meals, and friendship have been medicine for my soul and weary heart! :) Thank you for giving of yourselves to serve the Lord and me! Now, may I offer to you that I am always available if you ever need anything! I have told parents and students in the past that you are welcome to look me up, even years from now, if there is some way I could encourage or help you! The door will always remain open, even if God moves me on to a new ministry! So, please, know that I am here and will continue to pray for you! Thanks again so very much! May the Lord reward you richly for the kindness you have shown me!
