Hello LAC Family!
I hope that this message finds you all doing well. For our students, I hope the transition into online learning has been relatively smooth. For parents and caregivers, I hope that you are continuing to find joy and peace in your lives in the new reality of our world dealing with COVID-19
I wanted to share these messages with you that we shared as a staff looking at the story of Joshua, someone in the Bible who found himself facing New Challenges. I think all of us are facing new challenges, and God’s message to Joshua is one that I believe to be very applicable to our situation. I hope that if you can take some time to listen, then I hope that they prove themselves helpful to you.

Joshua 1 – Part 1
1 After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, the Lord said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ aide: 2 “Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them—to the Israelites. 3 I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses. 4 Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates—all the Hittite country—to the Mediterranean Sea in the west. 5 No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. 6 Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them.
7 “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. 8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”Joshua 1:1-9 New International Version (NIV)
