My wife and I have been fortunate enough to travel to some wonderful places. On our trips I love to see the architecture, particularly historical buildings; structures like Chichen Itza in Yucatan, Mexico and the Coliseum in Rome, which are two of my favourites. I am also fascinated by the medieval cathedrals that pop up all over Europe; for example, the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence and Notre Dame in Paris. The size and beauty of these structures are fascinating. They were built to overwhelm and remind visitors of the hugeness and greatness of our God. These cathedrals awe and amaze.
Unfortunately, I don’t think we have the finances to build a giant Cathedral in St. Thomas. Nor would I really want to. That being said, we are hoping to build an addition to our school that also points to God; not to awe and amaze, but to hold community and support an education that centers on Christ. God has blessed STCCS over the past couple of years with a growing enrolment, expanded programming and increasing support from our community. We are humbled by all that God has done and, with His help, we hope to translate those blessings into the completion of our fourth and final outcome:
St. Thomas Community Christian School will be a school with a facility that promotes community, education and safety.
Please pray for us as we work towards building a school that will enable Christian Education to flourish in St. Thomas.
