Congratulations for a job well done

Eighth-grader Jeff Ricker was excited after hearing a deal had been reached between Apple Valley Christian School and the elders of Apple Valley Baptist Church that might allow recently laid off teachers to return for the remainder of the school year.

“I wasn’t a Christian before going there, but I gave my life to Christ at that school,” Ricker said. “I feel better, but I hope they’ll be a school next year. These people are a part of my life.”
