The seniors are busy completing preparations for their mission trip to the Dominican Republic. They will be traveling March 22nd - 29th and will once again working with Lighthouse Projects in the towns surrounding the capital city, Santo Domingo. One of the activities that is most meaningful for the students and the people they interact with is the ability to give them a gift bag containing items such as snacks, toys, toothbrushes, toothpaste, washcloths and other everyday items. These encounters give the students an opportunity to pray, one on one, with the person receiving the gift.
In order to fill these gift bags, the seniors need your help. Please follow the link below to read the complete letter from Tiffany Haymore, Sr. Mission Trip Faculty Advisor, about this mission. Dominican Republic "Fill a Bag" Donations Letter
Additionally, there is a SignUp Genius available for you to sign up for donations. All donations are requested to be turned in by Friday, March 1st. Follow this link - Dominican Republic Donations SignUp - to sign up.

- Please be in continued prayer for Kim Hardwick, WCA teacher, who is undergoing treatment for recurrent melanoma. Thankfully Kim's liver numbers have returned to normal and she is continuing the slow weaning process from the large doses of predinisone she's been taking. Next week, Kim will meet with her doctor to discuss future treatment plans. Thank you for continue to remember her husband, Steve and their children (Ben - Class of 2018, Anna - 10th, Cary - 7th and Ella - 5th) during this time. Kim has set up a caring bridge site where she can share information about her journey. Caring Bridge for Kim Hardwick
- Please continue to pray for our art teacher, Jackie Kirsche, as she walks through her cancer journey. Her treatments were very successful. The tumor markers in Jackie's blood work are some of the lowest they’ve ever been and she will not begin any conventional therapy until active changes are seen in tumor markers, which will be checked monthly.
- Anderson Krieger (9th grade) and his family, as he continues the maintenance phase of his cancer treatment. For the most recent updates and specific prayer needs, please follow Sally on social media.
- Brent Weatherly and his family as he battles cancer. You can follow his journey and receive specific prayer requests. http://dbw26.wordpress.com.
