May 2009 - Jilissa's closing statement:

As I reflect on the past school year and what God has taught me, I guess the thing I've learned is that it's worth obeying what He tells you to do. It was hard for me to come back for a second school year but God has shown Himself again to be trustworthy.

The importance of mending and developing relationships has also been proven to me.  The two years God has given me here are gifts.  I learned or rather was reminded of how important it is not to waste the times God gives and the people He puts in our lives. Even if some of them are difficult, they are there to teach something God wants for you to learn.

I hope that I have been able to learn what He wanted for me here and was able to serve. I know that He has used my experiences here at E.S.D. for good in my life. I will always remember this place and its people. I want to continue to trust, to serve, and to live out my faith and love for God after I leave here and until I go to be with Him.
