The Lord is moving in Lockland
Lockland is a small community north of downtown Cincinnati that's slightly over one square mile in size. Its population has declined over the past two decades and now what was once the high school houses all grades, Kindergarten through 12th, with two classes per grade.
Lockland is changing for the better and we believe God is working there. The school superintendent and elementary school principal are believers, or at least favorable toward Christianity, and school officials are excited about having a Good News Club. Permission slips were sent home in backpacks to the upper elementary grades rather than the entire elementary school because we expected a large turnout since there isn't much for children to do after school. We were wrong and didn't have any students at our first club. Remembering God's faithfulness and our need for wisdom, we prayed during club time and came up with Plan B along with help from the principal. A second round of permission slips went to the entire elementary school and the office even made an announcement encouraging kids to come to club.
Praise the Lord that our first club was yesterday, February 28th, and eight students attended plus two more are registered and will come next week! It's an encouraging start and our prayer request is that you would join us asking the Lord to bring more students.
