Happy New Year, praying mamas of Jonesboro! I just wanted to take a minute to point out how incredible God has made our first term of the year. I am so thankful for all of you praying for our community, our school, our staff, and our students. I am also so thankful for the support that is always shown and given. For this new year and term, I have asked God what is we need to pray for as mountain moving, Satan scaring mamas. His response, unity, cooperation, and peace. Unity for our students, staff, and community to remain strong together as a family. Cooperation (and grace), fore the times of state testing are upon us in this term, and it can cause major stress and frustration for teachers and students alike. Peace for our family unit as a whole. Meaning the community, staff, and students. As mentioned, this is the part of the year when things can become tense and overwhelming. As the praying mamas of Jonesboro, we can counter all of this with the power of prayer, and by giving it all over to Jesus. These are our babies in this place, our friends, and the community we love. Let’s build them up in Jesus name, praying out all flu and multitudes of other ailments that threaten our babies health. Let’s pray for their teachers who teach them, before we criticize or accuse them. Let’s pray our school into a new year that is so remarkable the only thing people will be able to see is Jesus in us all. I love you all and am so thrilled to praying together with you all! HAPPY NEW YEAR! Ramey Barnett

To our past, present and further players, your legacy for the sport has shined all the way to California. Keep up the hard work and know that we are very proud of each of you. As the last line in article says we “leave together,” I’m reminded of just how blessed our Jonesboro family is to have each other. Enjoy the rest of your Christmas break!
