Senior Skip February 19-25, 2015 #22
The Class of 2015 went on the traditional SKIP last weekend. They enjoyed a visit to Lahore, seeing the Badshai Mosque, the Lahore Fort, the Salt Mines, a theme park and finished in Islamabad with ATV riding, a 3D movie and shopping. They didn’t try to sneak away, but announced they were leaving.
All of the Senior High students had their Spiritual Emphasis Weekend recently and really enjoyed
Mr. Alber’s talks and the relaxed atmosphere and warm weather at Aram.
In Chapel, our guest, Immanuel Martella spoke about the 3 levels of faith and referred to Hebrews 11. We cannot depend on the faith of others or a spiritual routine. A growing relationship with the Lord will make a strong faith that changes how we live. Immanuel and his wife, Annie, were visiting the country from Germany.
In Church we heard J. John speak on the fifth Commandment, “Honor your father and your mother.” We can respond to them with respect and care about them when they’re old.
Some of you might recognize the location of these photos. The first is a view of Jhika Gali, the new street dividers and, the latest addition, the green railings dividing the street from the sidewalks and shops. These really help keep traffic flowing and controlled.
Another new convenience is the tall white electronic time and temperature display board at the far end of Jhika Gali. Concrete planters and shrubs and flowers were also added, which, in time, will make this hill at this crossroads very attractive.
