Auburn Adventist Academy (AAA) in Auburn, Wash., sent two student groups during spring break around the world to serve in Belize and the Philippines.

The first group of 30 students spent 12 days in Belize at the King’s Children’s Home to help improve the facility and build relationships with the staff and children.

“The kids inspired us with their capacity to learn so much from their limited resources,” says Lauren Richert, a junior student.

“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord … will not grow tired or weary … but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength … they will run and not grow weary” (Isa. 40:27). Have you ever thought of God as a runner, running after His children, longing for them to run with Him, to be with Him, to be changed by Him? Students at Upper Columbia Academy (UCA) in Spangle, Wash., have.

Students in Kimberly Clifton’s fifth-grade class at Tualatin Valley Academy in Hillsboro, Ore., got to combine learning with a lot of fun this school year thanks to her innovative teaching style.

This spring, Clifton’s students read The Door in the Wall, a book set in medieval England. It is the story of a young boy named Robin who overcomes adversity and finds strength in his weakness throughout his quest to be recognized by the king.

It was just a small bottle of oil. Maybe a couple of ounces and not as much as the widow had. But it was enough. It was all they needed.

Land had been secured in La Paz, Baja California, Mexico, and plans were underway to construct a Center of Influence in this little neighborhood called Santa Fe that needed to be reached for God. It would be a community center where free physician consults, dental exams, dietary advice, clothing distribution and much more could be shared with neighbors. There would be classes and fellowship, and, finally, there would be worship.

“Learning” and “meeting the mission of Seventh-day Adventist Christian education” are not isolated to classroom experiences but can take place wherever intentional effort has been planned.

For the past three years, I have been witness to God’s incredible blessings at Mount Ellis Academy (MEA) in Bozeman, Mont. I have seen blessings in the form of many people who support our school, sacrificing financially to make an Adventist education possible for those who might not otherwise be able to send their kids to MEA.

And while I tell everyone who will listen that Mount Ellis Academy admits all students regardless of financial need, I will admit that sometimes my faith is not strong enough.

April 30, 2018 / Melanie Lawson

Romans 12:13 was a continuing theme for the students, staff, families of Boise Valley Adventist School (BVAS), and members of the Cloverdale Church in Boise, Idaho, after learning the needs of one school family.

The events of a Wednesday in January and days to follow would change the life of the Smith* family. “Kyle* is never absent, and I worried that something might be wrong when he didn’t show up for school,” recalls Kyle’s teacher, Stacee Campbell.
