NAUMS Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic

For the past two weeks, I have been praying for an encouraging word for all stakeholders in the University-Model ministry and movement.  I truly believe the word I received is an answer to my prayers. 

                     Stand Firm on Your Faith and Plan for the Future 

This is a message of great hope!  The Father will bring us through this crisis, as we continue to pray, seek Him, and love Him with all our “heart, mind, soul, and strength.” We must also dedicate ourselves to taking the precautionary measures recommended by our state and national leaders. We will pray, knowing that God hears and answers prayer, and we will do our part to bring this crisis to an end, sooner rather than later. UMSI school leaders all over the nation have executed alternative plans designed to continue a strong partnership with parents, combined with the excellence in education these schools are known to provide. Let me assure you that the NAUMS, Inc. Board of Trustees and staff are praying daily for all schools and stakeholders in our network.  We will pray without ceasing, stand firm on our faith, and plan for the future.

With a heart full of love and gratitude for all of you,

Barbara Freeman
