Lancer Express February 28 - March 4, 2022

Staff Message - Joel Ungemach

Family! It has been a blessing in my life! If you know me well, you know that I come from a relatively large family (I am the youngest of six) and that my wife and I have been blessed with six awesome blessings of our own. I sincerely cherish the wonderful relationships, love, and support that God has blessed me with through my wife, children, parents, siblings, and extended family. My time spent with family is always special and held dear. We belong to another family blessed by God, the Lancer family. Over the past 18 years my family and I have been embraced by wonderful Christian brothers and sisters here in Manitowoc. Whether it has been working daily with faculty, staff, and students or having the opportunity to connect with alumni and supporters at MLHS Sundays, concerts, athletic contests, or performances, it has been a true blessing to be a part of this “Lancer Family”. This family is not just a term that we throw around when we want to feel connected at MLHS. I have witnessed through triumph and tragedy just how much this family sticks together and supports one another. The family of believers at MLHS is a true blessing! In fact, Paul writing to the Ephesians spoke about the bigger family of believers. He wrote, “So then, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of God’s household.” (Ephesians 2: 19) Lancer Family: Continue to support one another in love! Cheer one another on! Hold each other up in prayer! We are family under God! 😊
