FA Community Bulletin – February 21, 2018

In This Issue:


FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL’S OFFICE

Dear Faith Community Member,

This Friday, February 23, will be a special evening at Cadd Theater as we will be hosting the Jeju Feel Youth Orchestra from Korea.  This talented group of students will perform along with six Korean professors who are professional musicians.  The Faith Academy Orchestra will also do a combined selection with our guests. The concert begins at 6:30. The driving force behind this concert is a desire to show thanks and appreciation to the Western missionaries who came to Korea years ago and brought the love of Christ. This concert is a tangible way to give back and say “Thank you!”, thus the title: “Love Reaction!”. DON’T MISS OUT. Hope you can attend!

The girls and guys basketball teams are off to the ACSC (Asia Christian School Conference) Basketball tournaments this week. The girls will be at Grace School in Thailand and the boys will compete at Morrison Academy in Taiwan. Pray for safety in travel and while on and off the courts. Pray also for opportunities to be a good testimony during this trip.

We will have an All School Chapel next Tuesday, February 27. If you are available and would like to join us, please feel free to come and participate. This event will be held in the Cadd Theatre and will start right at the beginning of school at 7:10.

Eight representatives from Faith Academy appeared before a public hearing of the Committee of Arts and Culture of the Philippine Senate, chaired by Senator Chiz Escudero, to represent our EIIC Bill for consideration. Praise the Lord that our Bill was passed. It will still need to be presented to the general assembly of the Senate for approval. But we are one step closer!

Serving with you,

Tom Hardeman

Head of School

 “Our Heavenly Father sees the transgressions in the shadows as easily as those on the mountain top…

The good news is that He forgives both equally”

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
