JANUARY SESSION HIGHLIGHTS:
Dear Knollwood Family,
We are so excited for you all to walk along side us in prayer and support during our adoption process! For those of you who don’t know us, I grew up at Knollwood, and Clint and I were married there nearly 8 years ago. Knollwood is a very dear church to us as so many of its members have been like family.
We are adopting a daughter, Elda (her given African name), from Guinea-Bissau, Africa. She was born on September 26, 2011. We hope to travel to Africa this summer if our paperwork continues to progress smoothly.
God has richly blessed us through Clint’s job which has allowed us to incur no debt during this process. Adoption is expensive, but we are trusting God to continue providing the resources necessary without building debt. If you want to follow our journey, go to www.gracenotwasted.wordpress.com. This blog will give you much more info on our heart for adoption, why Guinea-Bissau and a time line of tasks completed. We are thankful to Knollwood for hosting a dinner to raise money for our adoption expenses and cannot wait to see many dear friends and meet new ones on February 4th!
Blessings and love,
Clint and Grace Lacy MancilJohn Barrett (6), Sadie (4), Daniel (2)

NEWS FROM KNOLLWOOD CHRISTIAN SCHOOL:
Our children did a fantastic job with the Christmas program. The program had a timely and Spirit filled message that is applicable to all of us – can we see that we have a purpose that is so much greater than just living for ourselves, and will we act on that by putting Jesus and others ahead of ourselves?
It has not taken long for us to be back in full swing for our second semester. Granted, the first couple of days had many children almost sleepwalking as they arrived in the morning, but they quickly readjusted their bodies to getting back on school time.
While we are only halfway through this year, we are excited about the many new families that have already been contacting us about enrolling their children in our school in the fall. Please pray that those who earnestly desire to send their children to school here will find the means to turn those hopes into a reality. Also, continue to pray that we will continue to be instruments in God’s hands as He uses us to touch the lives of all who come within our realm of influence.
