Chapel with Birhanu

Chapel at the Upper School today began with our Praise Band leading us in a moving time of worship before 11th grader Birhanu V took the stage. Birhanu bravely shared his journey from Ethiopia to Florida. His story has included struggles, including living in an orphanage in Ethiopia and facing the challenge of learning a new language and culture upon moving to Florida. But Birhanu sees how “God was creating a beautiful story… Our family has grown so close and they are a gift from God.”

“If you trust God and follow His way, it always leads to freedom,” Birhanu told his classmates. “God loves you, and He wants what’s best for you.”

Thank you to Birhanu for sharing his story with our students and staff today. We are so thankful you’re here and part of the Foundation family!
