LIONS BUILD! That’s the motto of Covenant Christian School in Panama City, FL. On the anniversary of hurricane Michael, headmaster Michael Sabo says there is a silver lining to their experience, as students learn in reality what classical Christian education is trying to teach in their hearts — to rebuild, revive, and restore.
I wanted to thank you all for your support, encouragement, and prayers in the last year as we worked to recover from Hurricane Michael.
Last week was the one year anniversary of the storm. There are still great needs in the community with many homes and businesses still in need of repair or even demolition. Many homes still have blue tarps covering their roofs. We still have families at school living in RV’s in their driveways. Two of those families would be our church senior pastor and our board chairman.
God has been good in many ways. We were able to get back into our main building at the start of school in August with no delays. We were officially cleared to occupy the building three hours before the open house with the first day of school on the next Monday. We are still waiting on the gym to be complete but are extremely grateful for what the Lord has done, not just with the physical rebuilding of the school but what He has done with our hearts.
We were able to have a production company come in last year to help document the story. That video has been completed and I wanted to share it with you. The ACCS community has been a great part of this story. Schools have rallied to send us supplies, gifts, and encouragement during this journey. It has been incredible to see.
