Today when I wrote the letter to send to them, I hesitated. I wasn't sure how it would be recieved, what people would think, or if it would just add more to their inbox than they cared to recieve. I certainly didn't want people to think that I was "godly" or something more than I am - I just prayed and wanted them to know I was thinking about them. Nothing More. Nothing big, right? I sent the emails at 10:20 and by noon I had 35 responses thanking, encouraging, and affirming the effectiveness of our prayers. As I read each one, my heart grew full and my eyes filled up with tears. I was overwhelmed and very humbled by the responses and they are still coming...
Prayer Changes Things. Prayer Changes Me -
I wanted to share with you that you have been prayed for by name every day for a week now. Members of the community even came together on Sunday to walk the campuses and pray blessings over you for an amazing school year. (See More on the Prayer Walk at http://www.medley6pack.com/back-to-school-prayer-walk.html) I truly hope that you have felt their prayers and support as you have started this wonderful journey into touching the lives of our children this year.
Whether you are picking up trash, counting wadded up dollars for T-shirt orders, planning your scope and sequence or just the daily duties of JOB TITLE, please know that it is making a difference. I know that you don’t hear it enough for all that you do to impact the lives of our children.

Words cannot express how thankful I am, as this will impact me throughout this year, along with my 8th grade students.
