I stood in front of those classrooms full of students . . .
I'm copying exams . . .
. . . for the last time.
The school year is over--except for final exams and graduation. Next school year won't be the same. We've all changed.
And it's nothing short of a miracle. This helpless, sinful instrument was only useful because of the hands of an Almighty God.
I've seen minds expand and comprehend things they once thought were too much to understand . . .
. . . in spite of me.
I've seen hearts become softened and convicted . . .
. . . in spite of the fearful things that are constantly staring them in the face.
I've seen faces begin to shine with joy that cannot be gained from this world . . .
. . . in spite of the Devil taking the lives of their family members.
And though this victory is not as great as others, I also saw the school photo shoot completed . . .
. . . in spite of the rain.
