410 Students; Prayer & Praises for 2014-2015

Today is the first day of school, and 410 students streamed through the doors of Hope Academy today, our 15th school year. When Hope Academy began in 2000 with just 34 students in grades K-2, we could have never imagined what the Lord would do. Continue to praise the Lord and pray with us for his provision and protection.
