Have you ever had to train for a marathon, competition or something of that sort? Day in and day out, having to refocus, encourage yourself and try to push past any pain or obstacle? Faith is a lot like that.
Just as your body has to be worked out and strengthened, so does your soul. You see, each day the Lord is refocusing, encouraging and pushing you toward your greatest potential, but sometimes it is very difficult to see past the struggle.
We can question why this is happening and dwell on the obstacles, or we can face them head on and accept the challenge. God wants to bring the warrior out of you. 2 Samuel 22:35 says, “He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze.” So let Him train you; let Him strengthen you!
Look at everything you’re going through today as strength training. Condition your soul to keep going, to keep pushing so that you can become all He’s called you to be! If you will put your hope in the Lord, trusting that He holds you through all things, He will use you in more ways than you can imagine.
… but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint

Service Hours Opportunities
Speech and Debate season is upon us! We are finalizing the schedule in these next weeks and are planning on having a great season. These tournaments are typically Friday and/or Saturday’s at a local High School and are a BLAST! Picture 200-800 High School students from around the state in one place all trying to communicate messages that are important to them. Each tournament presents an opportunity for parents and families to earn quick service hours. At each tournament, we need volunteer judges to bring with our team to help judge events. THIS IS NOT HARD! All training will be provided at each tournament and most of the judges are brand new to speech and debate. Essentially, you will be handed a criteria sheet, listen to students speeches, dramas, or debates, and judge based on the outlined criteria on the sheet. You are also fed a meal and will have many snacks.
As an incentive for volunteer judges, I am offering DOUBLE SERVICE HOURS to all who come and help. I had one parent receive 22 hours last year from 1 Saturday tournament. Not only can you rack up service hours doing this, but you are making an impact on students lives from around the state!
If you’d like more information about judging and our schedule for the year, please contact Sean Musil. His email is email@example.com.
Reality Town is fast approaching! This is a great event for our Junior High students to get a glimpse of what life is like in the real world. They will learn practical skills of finance like paying bills, grocery shopping, and keeping track of spending! For this event, we are in need of someone to help us in making debit/credit card readers out of wood or something of the like. (Sturdy material, not cardboard.) If you are interested in helping with this project, please email firstname.lastname@example.org!
For the past several years we have been blessed with donations of special handmade prayer blankets to distribute to students who are experiencing injuries, illnesses, surgeries or loss of a family member, which keep them out of school for a prolonged time. Unfortunately, we have exhausted our supply of blankets. Because this has been such a blessing to the students who have received them, we would like to continue to provide them.
If you are interested in knitting, crocheting or sewing simple lap-sized blankets to be donated for distribution you will receive 7 service hours per blanket. Please contact Angie.Justice@lcaeagle.org if this is something you would like to do.
