Melissa Hess, one of the parents we met at a special retreat weekend, sent us this e-mail regarding what her chldren had learned during some of the sessions we had especially for children:
"Our 3 oldest children, Colin, Tobin, and Jadyn, attended the last Waiting School with us and were a part of your Children's Ministry. I meant to email you shortly after we got home to tell you what a wonderful time they had, and how much we appreciated your work and dedication. My husband is a public school teacher, as was I before I became a stay-at-home-mom. We can identify with the exhaustion you undoubtedly experienced.
I could go on and on about what a great job you did, but something that happened with Colin (who is 8 yrs old) this week is the best testimony of how God is using your ministry. We were reading out of Romans Ch. 7 this week as a part of his homeschooling. I said, "So, tell me what you got out of that," (as I normally would say). So he starts telling me, and then he stops and says, "Well, it's kind of like sanctification." And then he proceeds to explain sanctification to me. I almost couldn't believe my ears! I said, "Where did you learn so much about sanctification?" His answer--The Waiting School. I was blown away.
So...keep up the great work--God is using you in amazing ways! We are planning to attend the next Waiting School, so we will see you there! :)
