CALL ACCEPTED



We praise and thank God that He has led John March to accept the call as Principal. We welcome John to the St. John staff.

The following is the acceptance letter Mr. March sent:

Lorrie and I thank you for uplifting us in prayer as we sought the Lord over the call to St. John Indianapolis. We definitely appreciated them. This has been a very difficult decision to make. There was so much to take into consideration. However, after much prayer, talking to our mentors, and discussion between us as a family, we have decided that God is leading us to a new ministry at St. John. So, it is with much enthusiasm that I accept the call to St. John Indianapolis.
 
We feel that God has definitely directed us to serve with you at St. John. We are excited about this new ministry with you. And we look forward to working with you as we further God’s Kingdom in Indianapolis.
 
We do continue to ask for your prayers for our family as we make this transition. This will be at times very overwhelming, so we covet those prayers. We are currently in the process of selling our house, and we will then need to secure a house in Indianapolis. Please pray that God will orchestrate this all for us and in a quick time frame. We would also appreciate your prayers for our children as this will be a huge adjustment for them.
 
We look forward to being with you in July.
 
With a humble heart,
 
John March

We pray for John, Lorrie and the March Family as they transition to St. John.

This show, with its variety of ever-changing story genres, has something for everyone! The audience becomes the live studio audience on a talk show, “Real Talk with Fairytale Legends”, where the seven dwarves tell the story of Snow White as the Fairytale Players bring it to life.  Each new dwarf takes a turn telling different parts of Snow White’s famous story in his or her own unique voice, along with some confusion with other popular childhood stories.
