Jenn Phillips thank you…

I just wanted to drop you all a note to say how thankful I am for all the support you’ve given me over the last year – but especially in the last term. As a board you have gone above and beyond in your support and encouragement of me and it means a lot to know I have a team of Godly servants making sure the train stays on the tracks (so to speak!).
In particular, I have been touched by the additional support I have received these have truly been far greater than what is necessary for a board to provide. These range from the personal conversations to check in with my wellbeing, to the kind providence of my needs (my new iPad), the financial support you provided during my prac placement, and the kind gift of a meal out, which David and I are looking forward to enjoying soon!

Prayer & praise points from Melanie

  • Praise God for his work in the yr 11 students and their initiative to approach me, pray for the instigation of a lunchtime group and all that will entail.
  • Give thanks for the support I have in the TAS staffroom and from the Deputy.
  • Give thanks for the various different Christian teachers who have made themselves known to me and have been encouraging and supportive
  • Praise God for his goodness in how he equips and encourages especially when it’s needed.
  • Praise God for the work he’s already done in softening the hearts of the school administration in their openness to have a lunchtime group and pray that he will continue to work to open more doors to have SRE run the way it should be in the school.
  • Pray boldly for the salvation of the Principal and Deputy and pray that I will able to be a good witness to them both
  • Pray that the students in my classes will be aware of their changing scripture timetable and will remember to check when scripture will be on and come to class on time.
  • Pray for the year 8s and that they will be more settled in class.
