In This Issue:


FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL’S OFFICE

Dear Faith Academy Community Member,

Since this is the first time I’ve written since before Christmas break, Greetings in the start of the second semester and in the New Year! I just returned from a trip to Florida to participate in a Board meeting for the Child Safety & Protection Network that our school is a part of and it is good to be back.

There are some very difficult and complex situations that the school is dealing with involving legal action, etc. Would you please pray for God to work in and through these circumstances to bring about good, helpful and appropriate resolutions?

PRAISE GOD!! Our EIIC (Educational Institute of International Character) Bill is going forward to be signed by President Duterte. This last Monday the Congress voted unanimously to pass our bill. Now we need to pray it is signed by the president into law.

A reminder: Valley Golf Hills Subdivision will be cracking down on parking in the subdivision with fines, possible clamping, etc. This will begin very soon. The school has made available an alternate solution with using the parking on our lower campus. Please contact the Business Office if you are interested.

Don’t miss out on the fun of Talent Night. This annual enjoyable event takes place this Saturday, January 19 starting at 6:00 in Cadd Theatre. Y’all come on out and join us!

Serving with you,

Tom Hardeman

Head of School

TUESDAY PRAYER GROUP

We can do nothing without prayer. All things can be done by importunate prayer. It surmounts or removes all obstacles, overcomes every resisting force and gains its ends in the face of invincible hindrances. ~ E.M. Bounds

Friends, let’s come together and pray for our school and our community!

Tuesday mornings at 7:15 am in the Tipunan Prayer Room.


Great is Thy faithfulness O God my Father,

There is no shadow of turning with Thee;

Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not

As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be”

Your faithfulness endures to all generations; you have established the earth, and it stands fast.  Psalm 119:90
