This morning we will be having our last graduation at Colegio Esperanza. It is going to be a very emotional day…this school has meant so much to so many people for so many years. God has used this school to have a huge impact! So today will be a celebration but also have a bit of sadness as our last preschool and 6th grade classes graduate…seeing all the faces in their cap and gowns will be special. A word of thanks from Mr. Buzbee…
I wanted to take this moment to thank all of YOU who have prayed and helped us with El Colegio La Esperanza, God’s school that is located in the dump. Today is our final graduation and it is going to be a tear jerker. We are graduating our final 6th grade class and our pre-school. Sue and Elizabeth are going to walk the two twins that they nursed back to life a few years ago- named Elizabeth and Melissa. So many memories. This school was really a SAFE HOME for all these kids. Wow, it’s all coming to an end and a new beginning.
This neighborhood has been so challenging and life changing for all of us. Personally, it has shown me so much about God’s love for us, His choosing us and in my weak moments choosing sin over life. I will forever be changed by it.
Please be in prayer, the ceremony begins at 4:00pm EST.
May God’s love shine bright in all of our lives. What a trip it’s been!
ps THANK YOU MELISSA FOR YOUR YEARS OF PIONEERING AND SPIRITUAL WORK TO HELP BUILD THIS SCHOOL! love, dad (I wish you were here today)
