A “Lord of the Rings” fan who loves history and is the son of a teacher at SIM’s Bible School. The daughter of an optometrist, who comes from Pakistan and likes to write plays. A born leader, who is the son of the director of World Health Organization in Niger. The daughter of a Nigerian pastor who never lacks a song to sing nor a greeting for all she passes. A natural conversationalist and serious student, who is the son of a church-planter. The daughter of mission administrators who draws and acts with skill from the Lord.

These are the Grade 11 students that make up my homeroom class. I enjoy them immensely. We only meet three times a week, but we’ve had lot of good discussions about trust (my personal theme for the year!). We’ve talked through questions like… “Why we can trust the Lord”, “What we can and can not trust Him to do”, “What trusting looks like”.

Once a year, each home room plans a school assembly. I was happy when my class chose “trust” as their assembly theme! We worked on it for several weeks. They wrote and presented a great skit. The whole secondary student body laughed through the skit and two activities. One featured a blindfolded person feeding another blindfolded person a banana with instructions from a crowd. The other activity placed one blinded person in the middle of a circle of people to be passed from person to person. Both activities took a lot of trust!

We’re very thankful we can trust God who is all-powerful and all-loving. Imagine how frightening it would be to live in a world with a God who is only powerful or only loving!
O my people, trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him. Power, O God, belongs to you ; unfailing love, O Lord, is yours. Psalm 62:8 and 12
