Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you in the way you should go. –Isaiah 48:17
We are More than Conquerors
Have you ever pondered what God has in store for your future? If you have, you may have determined that life is uncertain. However, despite the uncertainties of life, we have been given precious promises in the word of God to guide our hearts and minds through difficult times. In Romans 8:35-39, the Bible reminds us of the following: “…Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Through these promises, we can be confident that God will still be with us—no matter how uncertain or scary our circumstances are.

Holbrook Indian School Garden Feeds Community; Takes Learning Online
Holbrook Indian School’s farm was established with the focus of holistic education through sustainable farming. A part of that initiative is Garden-to-Plate, where students help to grow, harvest, and prepare organic produce. During the COVID-19 pandemic, HIS Farm continues to provide produce to our surrounding communities and HIS staff. The school is also continuing students’ education via online and mail-in packets. Holbrook staff look forward to continuing the special projects that the farm and students were working on—and, when quarantines are lifted, welcoming their students back to campus.
