Dear Faith Academy Community Member,
Please be aware, this Thursday, November 28, there will be no activities after school. This does coincide with the American Thanksgiving holiday, but rather than focus on that, we are encouraging our broader community to center on giving thanks and being thankful. We have been abundantly blessed over the years as a community by God in His provision for the school and community. We have so much to be thankful for! Please join us in returning thanks to the Lord.
In case you were wondering…Our boys and girls varsity basketball teams are traveling this week to participate in a special tournament started by Hong Kong International School or HKIS (not to be confused with the Hong Kong International Community School!). Fifty years ago when HKIS started this tournament Faith Academy was one of the teams to participate. Over the years Faith Academy has participated off and on until it was decided the teams were traveling too much with the ACSC and this tournament. HKIS was originally planning to host this special
commemorative 50 th celebration and invited all of the original schools to attend. Even though we had decided not to participate in this tournament on an annual basis any more, the administration agreed to make an exception and allow the teams to join in for this special event. Then the unrest and riots broke out in Hong Kong. As a consequence the whole tournament was moved to a school in Taiwan (another early participant). The airlines were willing to transfer the tickets we had already purchased for Hong Kong to Taiwan, and so our teams will be participating in the 50 th Anniversary of the Hong Kong Tournament…taking place at Taipei American School in Taiwan! Please pray our students will be Christ-like ambassadors on and off the basketball court.
Serving with you,
Head of School

O what a foretaste of glory divine
Heir of salvation, purchase of God
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood”
