As many of you have heard, we discovered three burst pipes and inches of water throughout our entire Early Learning Campus on Christmas Eve. It broke my heart to see the damage this caused. As I walked through the building with water in my shoes, I thought to myself, “Lord, why now?”
I still struggle sometimes to understand God’s timing on things, but I believe in His sovereignty. I believe His promise that “…in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 [ESV]. I know LCA loves God and that He has called us to minister to Christian families. So, against my temptation to question God, I chose to trust that He is actively at work in this situation for the good of LCA.
As our team, who has served valiantly and faithfully throughout the holidays, swung into action, it became apparent that the Lord had already gone before us. Mitigation work began immediately on Christmas Day. We have seen God’s favor in securing contractors, insurance rulings, providing temporary facilities, etc. Our LCA families have been flexible, patient, and supportive. Our Lower School team made room for many families to place their children this week. Wow! God is working this out as He promised.
The greatest blessing we have received manifested itself in Stonebriar Community Church which is making rooms available for our Pre-K 3 through Junior Kindergarten students to have school on their campus while the ELC is repaired. This space was scheduled to be remodeled and repurposed but, various delays in the process have made it available for our students. God is good! He has once again made a way where there seemed to be none. I am so grateful for our partners at Stonebriar Community Church. They welcomed our team yesterday with breakfast and prayer as they arrived to begin setting up classrooms. What a blessing!!
We’ve discovered hidden blessings as we work through renovation plans at the ELC. We’ll install new carpet and baseboards throughout the facility, get a new design for the reception, some new tiling in bathrooms, and a new storage area, all of which were part of our wishlist before we initially opened the campus. While consulting with church partners, we found that LCA has many friends in the community. Several churches stepped forward and graciously offered their spaces to host us. I was overwhelmed by their willingness to come to our aid. The body of Christ is alive and well here in North Texas. We should be grateful for God’s goodness and faithfulness in our time of need.
Some of you may be facing difficult times. Know that God is not absent. He promised never to leave or forsake us. He blesses us with amazing times on the mountaintops. He also clearly has hidden blessings in the valley.
Thankful for each of you,
Head of School
