The Start of School

And so it begins. Another beautiful day at Portland Adventist Academy. The start of the 2006–07 school year. You can feel the excitement in the air. You can see the anticipation on faces. Can you imagine what will become of them? What they will accomplish? How will eternity be changed because of the work that happens here?

We look forward to watching the changes in each student. Their maturing of character, growth in academic intelligence and a better understanding of the world is what we want for them. But more importantly, we pray they grow to know Jesus as a friend. May He walk the halls with them. May His be the shoulder they cry on, the hand to “high-five” after a game, and the ever-listening ear for whispered secrets at night. May He be the reason for it all.
