Discipleship Celebration

Guest Post by Irene Pruitt: 

At Quisqueya Christian School, all of the 7th-12th graders are in weekly discipleship groups with teachers or other adults. Robbie and I, along with two other teachers, have had the opportunity to lead groups of 12th graders this year, and had our final meetings with them earlier this week.

The girls in my group have been wonderful this year. Even though they didn't know each other very well at the beginning, they really bonded together as a group over the course of the last several months. We've had great discussions about lots of different topics--relationships, making decisions, the future, college, faith, boys, and ethics, to name a few. They have supported each other through friendship, prayer, and laughter. It has been such a blessing to me to watch them grow this year, and I am so excited to see how that growth continues over the next few years of their lives. One of the girls in my group said something like, "Miss, you don't have to worry about us when we go to college. We're not going to go off the path and go crazy. We know the Bible. Quisqueya has really prepared us. We'll be okay." And you know, I think she's right.

To celebrate the year of discipleship with the Seniors, all four groups went out for pizza and ice-cream this week to the fast-food place just down the street. We enjoyed spending the time together with this special class that we've grown so fond of over the last few years. May God continue to bless them and draw them toward himself as they transition to life after high school.
