Message from Phil Adams, Principal JH/SH & Central Elementary

Often we experience deep waters individually and corporately. My prayer for all of us is to become all we should be both in our personal lives and in the life of Phoenix Christian during these times of testing. Thanks to my wife Cindy who shared these thoughts from her Bible study.
