Public school opened its doors yesterday for “re-indoctrination”, a yearly procedure wherein all staff are introduced, given extra-curricular activities, and handed various forms to sign as required by the state. Tomorrow the kids make it all official. Our church educational facility is also hard at work getting its rooms ready for our own enrollment (around 200), their arrival scheduled for next Monday.

God save us, as a country. God open our eyes to that which right in front of us……
