The challenges of our world today make it an uphill task to raise the next generation of leaders. Our children have to battle with a world that is nothing like the world we knew. The world is becoming less friendly. We are in a crowd yet many are lonely. The family unit is threatened as global socialisation has taken a totally worrisome change and God is gradually being redefined. Money and flashy lifestyles have taken front stage and those who insist on the old and time tested values of the bible and christianity are being challenged.
This is the world in which educators have to navigate to raise tomorrow’s leaders to have the right values of hardwork, faith, empathy. It is therefore heart warming when we are able by the help of God to raise children through the help of God and send them out prepared and established on Jesus Christ the solid rock.
