From The Lion's Den, Vol 2, Issue 07
Six years ago, I would occasionally think about what the month of May would look like in 2017. Well, we just made it through May 2017, and it was awesome! With many prayers from people all over the country, and all kinds of help on the ground each and every day, we GRADUATED our FIRST class of seniors! I first want to say thanks to God. He has been so gracious and merciful to our school over the last five years. Secondly, the parents of these seniors have been so helpful and responsive when we needed them. I can think of two situations in the last nine weeks where two sets of parents stepped in and solved a situation that could have been disastrous. Our staff over the last five years has been amazing, and I am so thankful for their effort and willingness to love these students like Christ. And the students also deserve a big pat on the back! The seven guys who have finished, put in the work so that they can now move on to the next stage of their life. My prayer is that the foundation that has been laid will give each graduate secure footing to be bold and courageous over the next seventy years of their lives. And last but not least, I want to thank all the donors who have made this possible. As always, I am ridiculously humbled by the generosity of so many people. I praise God for you on a weekly basis!! #THANKYOU
Delta Streets Charity Weekend
Delta Streets completed another successful Charity Weekend at the end of April. Supporters from across the area joined us for golf, a clay shoot, and gala – and we raised more than $70,000! Throughout the weekend, we were able to share inspiring stories about our students and explain how Delta Streets is sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ each day at school and on the playing field.
