A few weeks ago I told a story in a sermon about one of our preschool teachers. I think it bears repeating. We have many wonderful teachers in our Amazing Creations Preschool. They are from all over the world and God has brought each one to the school with a purpose. Miss Meena was one of those special teachers and has been a part of the ACP team for many years.
She recently moved away but she left a gift with us in the form of a story of God’s intervention. But, first, let me share some observations about Meena. She was a strong but loving disciplinarian. Children in her care were given clear instructions and firm guidance and they responded well. She participated in chapel services with a kind of holy attention to God’s presence. It seemed that the story of Jesus was new for her, as it is for a number of our teachers, but she soaked up those stories of Jesus like a sponge.
