Hey Everyone! It’s been awhile since our last blog post, but we wanted to keep you updated on the latest happenings at Compass. We got started with our Summer LEAP program on June 3rd, with 23 students enrolled. We continue to see more students register and we’ve had some super-fun moments. However, from time to time at Compass we go through seasons that are more challenging than others, and this summer we have found ourselves facing some difficult circumstances. We’ve faced a lot more conflicts than normal between our students, as well as issues of respect for authority, and our kiddos have been struggling to be life-lifting towards their peers. This week our staff, and a group of high school volunteers from CCC have bathed our students in prayer, asking that God would let this week be characterized by joy and laughter. We are SO blessed to be able to report that this week we have seen a DRASTIC improvement in the attitudes and behavior of our students, and that God has answered our prayers! Joy and Laughter have been incredibly prevalent, and I am beyond blessed to see how God is faithful to answer the prayers of his people. I’d like to ask for your continued prayer for our students and staff as we still have three weeks to go before our summer is over. I believe that we are constantly engaged in a battle for these little souls, and they need US to go to bat for them! So would you please take some time over the next 6 weeks to pray for our kids in the following ways? We cannot thank you enough for supporting us in this way!
Pray that God would allow joy and laughter to continue to characterize our program this summer
Pray that God would help our students to be life-lifting towards their peers
Pray for wisdom and patience for our staff and volunteers
Pray that God would be at work on our students hearts even in times of discipline.
Pray for students who come to us with tremendous hurts and pain
Pray against the work of the enemy in the lives of our children outside the walls of Compass
Pray that they would be able to tangibly experience God’s love for them
Thank you for your investment in this ministry….your support makes more of a difference than you could know!
