Make straight the way of the Lord,

More worthy than mine.

Sister, it's anjelina :) I just wanted to tell you how much I love your blog! I love reading the things that the students wrote. I sure miss those days. I don't think that any of us last year really saw the point in learning or school. I just wanted to thank you for everything that you have done for every single one of us. :-).

Lots of love!!!

So that in all things... God may be glorified! :)
