A Message from Sarah Donovan, Principal of The Extended Educational Programs
Lifelong learning is a goal for our students, teachers, staff, and leadership at TFA’s Extended Educational Programs. Over the past weeks, TEEP’s leadership team has visited and learned from benchmark schools in the Central Florida area. These professional collaborations are key to continued growth for our programs. It creates waves of excitement with new ideas and affirmation of the working being done at the Preschool, The First Hope, and TCS. A wise man will hear and increase in learning, And a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel. Proverbs 1:5

A Brother’s Love- A Devotional by PJ Wehry
As we come off of Valentine’s Day, I’d like to remind us of the need for good friends. Yes, our spouse is a gift from God (hopefully my wife reads this), but we need more than our spouse. In American society, intimacy is often seen as distasteful outside of a romantic partner. But the Biblical picture of friendship shows a robust kind of love. As we see in 1 Samuel 18, “Jonathan made a covenant with David because he loved him as himself. Jonathan took off the robe he was wearing and gave it to David, along with his tunic, and even his sword, his bow and his belt.” Jonathan gave David everything on his person, symbolizing that everything that was his was at David’s disposal. If you have a friend like that, take the time to thank them and thank God for them. If you don’t have a friend like that, open yourself up to a friendship that is willing to put everything on the line for the other person. This is what Scripture pictures.
