School has started for the Wilkes family! Kim returns to Plano Senior High School to teach Math, but with no Cheerleader Sponsor duties this year. (Praise the Lord!) She's already loving the students she will lead this year.
Summer began her first official week with students in her room! She teaches special needs preschoolers at Barron Early Childhood School in Plano. She is part of the PPCD programs provided for the children, who she loves already.
Here she is with Kim in her classroom ready for the first day of school, and I had to include her father's most proud moment: her first payroll check!
She's officially on her own. Of course, we'll still help out if she needs it like we did with Storey, but she's providing for herself now. That makes 2 for 2 getting kidos into the work force and the future God has for them.
We had a time of commissioning at Legacy this past Sunday for teachers and students who began their school year this week. We believe everyone of them is a missionary for the kingdom of God wherever they go to school or serve.
School has stared for me, too. Outside my weekly teaching at Legacy, I have begun teaching Pastoral Leadership with BHCTI at Legacy. Troy Doucet and five other pastors and church leaders are part of that 8-week journey. This Thursday, I will begin teaching again the Master's level Biblical Servant Leadership course at the DBU North Campus. I taught this last fall and was a great experience of instilling the servant leadership model of Jesus into the lives of those entering ministry and the marketplace.
A busy schedule but it is all in the sweet spot of my gifting and passion to equip others to help people trust Jesus.
