Why I Teach DD and JK (SotW 2.8)

DD and JK are two students who generally do a great job.  They can be a little whiny at times because they both came from much better schools and clearly recognize that they are not receiving a superb education, but they usually work hard, at least in my class.

I’ve had a number of conversations with both of these girls and have learned that they both have very difficult home lives.  Because of this, they spend most of their time hanging out with their friends, doing things they shouldn’t be doing (I don’t think I need to give you too many details here…use your imagination).

Recently, I found out that both of them have been reading about and begun dabbling in witchcraft.  They are both very curious girls, but (being teenagers) also tend to soak up whatever is presented to them, without a whole lot of discernment.

I know that at least one of the girls, DD, has an intense hatred for anything having to do with God.  Please pray that God will protect these girls’ minds and keep them from the evil one.  Pray that He will open their hearts to Him and His word and that they will not be deceived by demonic forces.  Pray that I will be a light in the darkness to them, not just another Christian adult telling them what they should and shouldn’t do.
