Greetings from lovely Cornerstone Farm, about 3 miles from Marietta and 5 from Bushnell in beautiful west-central Illinois!
We are about to embark on another journey, this year we start with 20 students and a lot of great help from former P12 grads working on staff as well.
The weather is wonderful and forecast is excellent for Orientation week here.
We have a number of staffers ready with a full slate of teaching prepared, plenty of individual and group prayer, worship (several very good musicians this year), bonfires, personal sharing, fun/play, communion and more in the schedule.
It’s another year of doing our best to “ruin them for the world”… which simply means helping all of us together recognize and proclaim in thought, speech, choices and everyday life that Jesus Christ is Lord- and we are thankful and blessed to serve Him and others as His disciples, not merely caught in the typical world which is so very addicted to “self” and mere survival.
The kingdom of God has a King!
Our love and joy is to learn more about Him -and- how to build genuine relationships of integrity with Jesus, one another, then to reach out to those who don’t yet know or believe such a thing is even possible.
I can’t thank enough those of you who stop by this site- for your prayers and in some cases, financial support. Thank you So Much! We want our lives to be gifts to God and to many souls in this deeply needy world. Amen.
