ECS Friends and Family,
I’m excited to let you that ….”WE’RE DEBT FREE!!!” Yes, this afternoon by God’s grace, we were able to deliver the final payment to the IRS office and pay off ECS’s indebtedness -8 months earlier than expected to bring our Meet the Need campaign to a close.
When we first communicated this need to you in 2015, we shared that this was a big problem, but that we serve a bigger God. We claimed 2 Corinthians 4 that ECS is “knocked down but not knocked out.” We are now rejoicing that the school is back on its feet, debt free, and functioning on a balanced budget and continuing to reach, disciple, and educate students as it has since 1972. Our desire as verse 15 of this passage states is that “as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.” Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
While God receives the ultimate glory for meeting this need we also want to thank YOU for your support, donations, fundraiser contributions, work, prayers, and volunteer hours. We also want to thank our teachers and staff for making the sacrifices of a skeletal crew and lesser resources over this time to make this happen. It’s been amazing to see the ECS family rally together, especially seeing donations come in from graduates and staff members to “meet the need.”
Thank you so much!
