On Saturday, August 26th, CEAI Osceola County sponsored a back-to-school prayer breakfast to encourage, equip and empower educators for the 2017-2018 school year. Shireen offered an opening prayer and then we were blessed by a sweet time of worship from Brian and Xavier. Brian was last year's recipient of the Honor the Grads award from St. Cloud High School. He generously gave back to us by singing before and throughout the fellowship time of the breakfast. Thank you Brain and Xavier. Our delicious breakfast was catered by Koffee Kup, voted the best breakfast in Osceola County again!
Our keynote speaker Derrick Hicks educated the educators on the history of public schools and showed repeatedly how our nation was built on the strong pillars of Christianity. The educators all wished there was a way to review his presentation again or that they had taken better notes.

As always, I am prayerfully yours,
