Keep Planning and Pray On

s-'19 fall festival"We were concerned about the rain, but little faith we had," said Angie Stout, office manager, after a successful day at the Fall Festival.

Our annual festival provides a fun day for all, especially when the weather cooperates, but this year's event caused the Faith family to pray for the Lord's provision in a greater way because of the rain. Even though the inflatable activities were cancelled and the indoor play took precedence, the older children still kept their scheduled dodgeball tournament games outdoors, and the school jail which adds to the entertainment of the afternoon, went on as usual.

With the juniors running the games, the seniors prepared for their Spooky Trail that would take place during the evening auction. In addition, the vendors set up in the gym, and the teachers busied themselves in the kitchen preparing the take-out orders. The entire campus was turned into a busy fair ground.  Just days before, we were all wondering if the activities of the day would even materialize.

On Monday, just four days before the auction, few items were turned into the school office. So with a plea to our parents and much prayer for the Lord to provide, not only did we end up with two-thirds more items than last year, but also the items earnings nearly hit $11,000 to add to the over $7000 from the BBQ sales. Mrs. Stout said, "The Lord provided the helpers through our parents and faithful staff, and everyone worked hard for things to run smoothly. The Lord blessed in an even greater way than the last couple of years."

What was an even greater blessing was the reconnection with friends, former classmates and former teachers who braved the elements to get together again and re-ignite friendships.  What started out as a dismal rainy day culminated with showers of blessings!
