As the day drew closer for our first ever Fall Festival, so did the tropical storm! Amanda, our preschool director kept asking me what we would do if it rains. I kept saying, "We're going to pray and it's not going to rain!" But it did. It rained, and rained, and rained! We had to cancel the event for that day but we put out the word that it was still happening the next day.
We had sent so many invitations to our community and prayed that we could build some new relationships with new families. Would they still come a day later?
We had a great turn out! Many of the families were some of our closest neighbors. Best of all, Amanda gave three tours of the preschool and we have a new student starting in just a few days. That same family came to church this past Sunday! Despite the rain and the postponement, God accomplished His purposes.
It was a great boost for our Sunlight family as well. We came together to plan and implement a great event. It was great to see people pitching in to decorate their cars, our very own pro DJ spinning tunes, train driver, shave ice makers, Hot Dog grillers, one servant even volunteered to wave a sign on the street to bring people in! Our Sunlight Christian Academy parents and staff really pitched in to help with the event as well. It was a glimpse of more good things to come.
