Dear ELCA Family,
It is with great sadness that I write to inform you that our dear brother and friend, Mr. Steven Henderson, has gone home to be with the Lord. Mr. Henderson has faithfully taught in our school for many years and his impact is great and far reaching. These seasons produce more questions than answers but all we can do is rest in the Lord right now. Mr. Henderson believed in the sovereignty of God with all of his heart and I know that he would be speaking that to us if he were here.
Please continue to pray for April and the children as they face this difficult time. Please also let us know how we can assist you and your family as you process your grief. Many of our students have been influenced by Mr. and Mrs. Henderson and we will continue to support them as they process this great loss.
The Word tells us in Revelation 14...And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!”
Mr. Henderson is with the Lord today and has rest from his labor. His deeds on this earth were great and will have impact for years to come.
Chuck Gilliam, Ed.S.
Head of School
