Every week we see more and more progress on the building. In a few weeks, you will see the walls start to go up and that will be exciting. Yet, I have always said, the most important things at Illiana happens inside of the walls. They happen in the hearts and minds of our students. I told you we were going to share different stories of Illiana throughout the summer. You have heard from me, a former student who is interning, and today you are going to hear from current students. We have put together a video about Praise Crowd and how Jesus is working through that program at Illiana. I will let the kids speak for the program, but it emphasizes again how important and essential what we do at Illiana is now more than ever. I hope you enjoy the video and thanks again for all your support and prayers.
Side Note: There is 2 weeks left in the match gift campaign for the ARC. We have seen a number of gifts come in and we thank you for every dollar. Please continue to consider a gift if you haven’t given yet.
