Greetings in the name of Yeshua.
I am so happy to discover and know that there is an association that deals with teachers and schools who are working to raise lights and salt in the workplace to change the states and nation for Jesus.
Glad to join this group.
I am a retired christian educationist who worked with the federal ministry, but now a volunteer in a ChristIan organisation that has a goal of influencing the nation by working on the 7 mountains of society.
Will be using your newsletter often.
God bless your work and change our nation through your efforts.
