Auburn Adventist Plans One Person, One School, One Church

On Sept. 17, the Associated Student Body of Auburn Adventist Academy announced a plan to build a One-Day Church in Mozambique. After learning about the mission project through ASI and 3ABN, AAA's student leaders were eager to get involved.

"We are excited to take on this project," says Karsten Cook, ASB president. "We want to reach out and help our brothers and sisters in Christ."

"Our goal is two-fold," says John Spano, ASB sponsor, as he shared the school's plan for the project. "First, we want to raise $1,500 by Christmas. Our second goal is to have 100 percent participation of our school family."

Since the launch of the fundraiser, students have contributed nearly $500 toward the mission. Once money has been raised, it will be matched dollar for dollar by a donor. The money will then be used to build the structure and roof of the church in just one day.

"I am excited about this project because it is within the reach of every student," says Spano, when asked why he felt the One Person, One School, One Church ministry would make a positive impact on campus. "It is a project where we get to see our investment making a difference in other's lives."
