You Have the Power of God Inside You

Blog Archives:

One week ago, we said goodbye to principals and teachers in the Dominican Republic. We celebrated their dreams, prayed over their plans and encouraged them to continue working. Working for the schools they love. Working to change even just one child's future with the power of education. Working to transform even just one child's heart with the love of Christ. 

Their journeys will not be easy by any means. They will have to bring about change in how their teachers work, how their students learn, how their schools operate. And the change will be painful. 

But from that pain will come something beautiful. 

From that pain will come schools that are stronger than ever. Schools that reach more and more children every year. Schools that are sustainable for generations to come.

And that is a change worth celebrating! 


Training Leader Diane Stronks offered the principals a parting blessing. Please join us in praying for them.

"Thank you for how you have embraced us. Whenever I come to the Dominican Republic, I have a family of brothers and sisters.

Remember that each of you has the power of God inside you, and you have been called to be leaders in your communities.

This week we have made big plans, and we ask God that He will answer all of your prayers for these plans. When we meet again, I pray that we will see the evidence of the work of God through these plans.

Your work is incredibly difficult, because the weight of your communities rests on your shoulders. But together as principals, you can support each other. You can lean on each other and you can lean on Jesus Christ.

God bless you as you continue in your incredible work."
