YAY! Celebration Worthy...

Yep... we're excited! Why you might ask?

Today we learned it was official that we signed a ten year lease on the new property in Ethiopia that is going to allow us to expand the school and continue to add grades as the students progress!

And that is certainly celebration worthy!

When I look at this aerial photo of our humble little campus at Brighton Academy I can't help but be overwhelmed by all that God has done in those walls over two years.

So much love. So much learning. So much growth, joy, happiness, water and food!

And then... then we heard God say "GROW!"

We got scared again cuz... ya know... us of little faith.

But you CRAZY supporters said "We're in!" and so we started trying to see where we could grow. It's tough in Ethiopia... to find land. And we wanted to find land that would really allow expansion so we weren't doing this again in a couple years.

And today - I got a text from Nebiat - the director at Brighton Academy - that said:

"Brother... I've great news! We officially have a signed agreement on the new land!"
You guys... if you knew what it took to get here. What was overcome. How bad satan tried to stop it - even using some of His people to try and derail it.

I look back at all that God has done here at Brighton Academy and can't help but think He was just getting started!

This current campus will ALWAYS hold a super special place in my heart for all that it took to build and for all that has transpired here.

This is ALL HIM.

We've had some supplies and materials already delivered and our hope and desire is to live out the current lease at Brighton Academy and kick off the new school year in the fall in the new location.

There is much work to do to get where we want to be... but when I look at the reasons we're doing it...

ALL of these little faces that will get to keep progressing and keep learning at Brighton Academy... that work is SO WORTH IT!

Praise God... here we grow again!
