> My staff and I have always gotten most of our pay in the form of working with really great homeschooling families. In our recent efforts to close the business after 30+ years we were further amazed by several strong and godly families that thought highly of CHC and wanted to take over and keep the company going.
> This was a tough and demanding idea. It was more costly in time and money than most people think. Some plans had to be abandoned. Lots of research and prayer just about wore us out, but amid the ebb and flow of everything we realized how very much the Lord blessed.
> Now, I am very thankful to say we do have a new owner, a surprise candidate who found us in God’s wonderful Providence! The company has been acquired by Mr and Mrs James M. Odom of Sparta, IL. An attorney by profession, a diligent Christian by faith, Mr Odom, in the past, has worked with Dr. James Dobson and Focus On The Family. Now he will take over at Covenant Home with new energy and enthusiasm.
> I thank all of you who prayed with and for us during recent months. I’ve been so impressed by all that you are doing in your covenant homes, rearing a generation of young people who will be able to build God’s Kingdom and establish a compelling witness for Him in the earth.
Dear Rev. Dykema,
Thank you for your tireless conviction and perseverance in getting CHC's wonderful materials into the hands of homeschooling families. We are SO thankful for all it has brought into our family, particularly the emphasis on the truth of God's Word. I have been studying the Bible seriously for 30 years and have been amazed how fresh and relevant it is to believers in all times and places. As I read Luke 19 to my 6th grader this week, I "discovered" 2 verses there that I had never noticed before. Of course, they were there the whole time, but they took on fresh spark for me.
May God bless Dr. Odom and the whole staff of CHC.
