I just wanted to post a few pics of some amazing students who graduated from high school this past week.
The class of 2010 has a lot of class. All of the Grads from the church are active in some type of ministry. So proud of these guys.
We had a fun grad celebration at Goldwater Lake Saturday with friends.
Karim Hakim is a foreign exchange student from Aley Lebanon who graduated this year and he wrote us a two page letter before leaving Prescott.
Here is just a few words from our new friend Karim.
“For Prescott First Assembly I have a word to say. I want to thank every member of this church for excepting me as one of you regardless of my religion or my race. I’d like to thank my brother Jordan Sheperd for bringing me to this awesome place. I want to thank this church for being my other family.”
Just a few quotes we shared with the graduates during the Sunday worship service.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. ” ~Mark Twain,
“There are no shortcuts to any place worth going. ” ~Beverly Sills
The future lies before you
Like a field of driven snow,
Be careful how you tread it,
For every step will show.
“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Thank you to all the graduates who help make our world a better place. –
We love you and Brenda and I are so proud of you.
