Dear Friends and Family~
This has been a remarkable, life changing year for me as I have watched the Lord reveal His miraculous love and grace through the opening of Marian Hope Academy. “We are not of this World” goes through my head frequently as I pursue God’s calling for my life. To be able to help young children (despite learning differences) truly recognize the amazing, wonderful, unique creation they are and watch lives transform through an education rich in Christian roots, is an absolute joy. It is my hope and constant prayer that every child we serve will be flooded with the Holy Spirit and go into this world equipped with God’s armor. I have never been so busy, yet never felt more at peace.
Our staff felt called to provide our Marian Hope Academy students (and their friends and family) opportunities to give to those in need throughout our school year. If you want to see your child glow with the fruit of the Spirit…gentleness, kindness, joy, peace, love, goodness…seek opportunities for them to give and do for others. Our students have collected toys, food, and money for a couple local and international mission projects over the Christmas season. Our spring mission project is to collect 0-12 month spring/summer new clothes for Josiah’s closet through the Women’s Clinic of Kansas City. Young moms choosing “life” get incentives to shop in Josiah’s closet by taking various parenting classes. A guest speaker came to MHA and shared with our students, through age-appropriate communication and activities, the beauty of life (I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:…Psalm 139:14). The students have a goal to collect 135 clothing items. MHA may be small in number but our students and their families/friends are huge in heart:).
Will you help MHA collect NEW 0-12 month spring and summer clothes (boy or girl) for our spring mission project? We would like to have all clothes collected by March 28th.
Ways to get it to us:
Email me to make arrangements for pickup OR drop items off at Marian Hope Center (14820 E 42nd St, Independence).
Lastly, please pray for the Women’s Clinic of Kansas City and the moms and babies they serve.
Thank you for helping us support this amazing organization we have in our community.
In His Service~
In everything I showed you that by working hard in this manner you must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’~Acts 20:35
