ABC Now Accepting For Next Year
February 18, 2011
First Four Students Accepted for 2011-2012 Year
This week we were pleased to accept four new Ambassador Bible Center students for the next school year.
We now have 22 students in this year’s ABC class. One just arrived from Colombia and is busily attending his second week of classes. He speaks and writes English in addition to his native language of Spanish. We are pleased to have him join us for the second semester.
The meal plan that was added this year has been a huge success, with the meals being delicious and nutritious. We are pleased to have Connie Sipes as Food Services Manager, assisted by two students—Evan Anderson and Emily Hirst.
Frank McCrady has finished his first session of Gospels 2, and the students seemed to enjoy him as much as he enjoyed being with and teaching them. He has a few more days of scheduled class before he concludes the Gospels. Tony Wasilkoff, from Canada, is on loan for this week to continue teaching the Pentateuch 2 class.
The ABC Chorale has just completed its first full performance for the year in front of the Dayton, Ohio, congregation. I’ve heard that this was the best “debut” presentation of the chorale. Mr. Kenneth Shoemaker is the director and works tirelessly, along with the students, to produce music that inspires the brethren and glorifies God. We’re grateful for the efforts of all the students and Mr. Shoemaker.
We are very pleased with the progress that’s being made in this second semester. Currently, the students are meeting regularly to plan for the annual Charity Auction in May. There is much to do in soliciting items for the auction.
We appreciate the diligent efforts of all our students to learn the Word of God and, more importantly, to practice the teachings of that Word. We encourage potential students for the 2011-2012 year to submit their applications as soon as possible.
