One thing I have noticed in my six years of working at Illiana is the incredible generosity of the Illiana community. From the people who have the capacity to give a very large gift to those who do not have that ability, it is amazing how much this school is supported. It is easy to be thankful for the gift itself, but I want you to know that we are just as thankful for the person giving the gift as well as the thought and effort it took to write the check.
In addition to your financial support please pray for Illiana, for our teachers that they will be able to continue to teach the curriculum in a Christian way as they always have. Pray for our school counselors that they can give the right advice to a student in need, or a student wondering what college to attend. Pray for the administration and board that they will be able to lead Illiana Christian High School down the road less traveled and closer to God. Pray for the students, that they will be able to succeed in their studies and continue to be an example of what a Christian teenager should look like. And pray for the entire Illiana community, for those who have already lost their job or for those that might in the near future, pray that we can all take comfort in the fact that no matter what the economic situation is. God is in control of everything in our lives. All we need to do is trust in Him; He will provide for us everything we stand in need of.
Thank you for everything you have done for Illiana Christian High School, for the support you have given to us through the years. As I have said many times, we could not be the school we are today without the generous support of our association, and thank you in advance for your prayer support.
