“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you…”

At our last fruitful event of the year, one of the Kinders explained that “Peace is a gift.” This was true for Jesus’ disciples as He spoke to them in preparation for His death, burial, resurrection, and ascension into Heaven. And this is also true for each of these students as they leave kindergarten.  Jesus says,

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you…”

My prayer is that the PEACE that God leaves with each of them would continue to EXIST, EXCITE, EXPRESS, and EXPAND into first grade and the rest of their lives.  They have grown so much! It was such a privilege to witness the baptism of three of our Kinders who each made important salvation decisions this year. Another student plans to be baptized this summer after recently being saved! God’s peace is at work in the hearts of each of these Kinders. It is has been an honor and a pleasure to teach and learn alongside of them. Thank you Kinder Families for the partnership, constant support, and friendship throughout the year!

They are no longer my Kinders (sniff, sniff), but I can’t wait to see how their light shines in first grade! Keep shining for Jesus!

Happy Summer, Firsties!
