Life after Shelterwood is actually a very special chance to deepen relationships and demonstrate real care for one another. I was thoroughly blessed when three former Shelterwood students came to my wedding. Others students wanted to come, I look at those pictures, and for some of them life has been significantly more difficult since Shelterwood, but they are strong enough to bear it thanks to Shelterwood. It is a beautiful testament to the Lord, the week leading up to the wedding the kids stayed at my parents house and I laughed with them, and joked as we recalled various stories, and had deep spiritual conversations. To impact lives is such a privilege and together we are better off. These young men will remain friends and I hope that we can continue to care for one another.
