Along with our Lampasas public schools, the FBC Preschool and Kindergarten had a unique spring term, thanks to COVID-19. I know that our teachers shared in the grief of teachers all over the world for a “sawed off” school year. Those important milestones in learning and usual celebrations of the finish line just disappeared. It’s hard.
For one of our teachers, a health crisis for her husband also made the first quarter of 2020 unforgettable in a hard way. We thank God that Wes Graham—an educator himself—is recovered and getting back to normal now. We also thank God for Karis Graham and her excellent service in our preschool. This month of May marks the five year anniversary of her becoming a part of the teaching team. We celebrate this milestone with her, and we pray for God to fill the rest of 2020 with goodness and grace.
As I’m writing, we are beginning to think about how FBC events can start reopening. By the time you read this printed newsletter our first steps will likely be underway. If you use a computer, I urge you to visit www.fbclampasas.com for updated information under the COVID-19 tab, and be sure that we have a current email address we can use to send fresh news to you. If you don’t use a computer, a phone call to your computer-active friends in the church or to our office will be the way to stay informed.
Meanwhile, “Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.” (Deuteronomy 31:8 NLT)
Yours in Christ,
