History In the Making

Tomorrow afternoon at 3:00 pm history will take place. We, along with family and friends will watch Trae as he makes an entrance through those doors at the LCSC Activity Center and make history.

What so special about a graduation ceremony? This ceremony will have a significant impact on my extended family. Trae is the first male to graduate high school in my family. We are so thankful and honored that the Lord has chosen to use him to be a trailblazer and change the course in my family lineage.

Don and I have been really excited about this because he will be taking his next big step this Fall. Trae has decided to answer the call on his life and go into ministry. Trae is so talented. He could have chosen another profession and been very successful. As parents, we stand behind him and support him 100%. He will attend Portland Biblce College along with his sister Ruth.

Trae's Senior year has been a great year. He lead a ministry at the high school that he took over from Ruth called "Revolution" He taught his fellow brothers and sisters in Christ how to share their faith on the high school campus. Encourage & discipled new believers. He stood up like a strong tower for what he believed. He was popular for all the right reasons (Praise God). His class mates chose him to be Prom King and the staff chose him to receive the David Laird Award and be a Senior Representative based on his character and positive influence.

So tomorrow, will you rejoice with us as we celebrate this great acheivement.

I can't wait to see this in my son's hand!
As for now, he's asking momma to cook him some eggs.

Father God we thank you for Sandra's son Trae. Give him a continued determination for You so others can see You're glory! Thank you for allowing him to graduate and make history...but you already knew he would. Father you are awesome and let others continue to see that in Him. We bind the enemy in your Son's name so they will not have a foothold in Trae's life. In Jesus name, Amen!

Sandra - we're celebrating for you!

This will be such a wonderful event for you to personally witness.
God Bless you all!
Congrats and a pat on your son's back as well as have a son be the first male in your family to graduate from high school is quite a statement.

You have lived to see the day that he graduates. It's very touching.

Don't forget to Pray over his driving and riding in cars. There's something about this time of year that boys get injured in autos...

A heartfelt cogratulations,

what a blessing. I remember that I was the first female in my family to graduate High School. That meant so much to my mother.

May the Lord continue to guide his path.

I was telling husband about your family lineage and he said..."I too am the first male to graduate high school and college. He's also the first on either sides of our families to get a Master's" That blew me away. So thanks for reminding us of the things that are significant...sometimes they're right under our noses.
