Week of Prayer with Pastor Blaine Fults

We have been blessed to spend this week of prayer with Pastor Blaine Fults. Pastor Fults’ friendly style and meaningful content have been blessed with power from the Holy Spirit. In addition to morning and evening meetings, Pastor Fults has spent time in Bible classrooms with students answering questions and talking around the tables at meals. Please pray for us this weekend as he brings his messages to a close. Pray that God will work conviction and transformation in our hearts.

Win for Pastor and Sophomore at Jeopardy Junior Benefit

Last Saturday night, the junior class presented a fun fundraising evening, including an epic, five-round bout of Jeopardy. Students, parents, and staff members joined the game, competing in groups of two. The game included clues such as: “This president was the first to declare war”, and “This staff member once broke a rib because they were kicked while pulling a calf’s tail.” At the end of the evening Pastor Fetrick and a sophomore, James, won a brand new game of Jenga. The Junior class and sponsors would like to thank everyone who came and everyone who was involved in making this evening a success. Enjoy more pictures on Facebook here.

Music Groups Tour to Green Bay

Last Sabbath, the Wisconsin Academy Choralaires and Handbells had the privilege of spending the day with the Green Bay SDA Church.

Sabbath morning, the students led Sabbath School at  and shared a program of beautiful music under the leadership of Mr. and Mrs. Rasmussen with Mrs. White accompanying. The church members provided a delicious potluck lunch afterward.

On Sabbath, February 24, the Choralaires and Bells will be visiting churches in the Sheboygan area. We invite you to come and worship with us.

Enjoy photos of the tour on Facebook here or watch a video of the service here. (The music program starts about 7 minutes in). Thank-you Green Bay sound crew!

Prayer Continues for Philippines Mission Project

Almost every evening since the beginning of January, the students who plan to serve in the Philippines this Spring Break have been praying. They gather each evening in Mr. Dunder’s office. After sharing questions and expectations, Mr. Dunder shares an appropriate devotional thought from the Spirit of Prophecy. The students then all share prayer requests and agree to prayer for those requests. A majority of the time is spent in small prayer groups of two or three as we lift up our needs and our joys before God’s throne. Recently, we’ve been praying especially for funding for the church structure we plan to build. A large amount of money is still needed, but we press forward in faith, trusting God to provide in His time. Mr. Dunder closes the prayer time and we all return to work and study. I have been deeply blessed by this time of prayer and expect to see God doing amazing things through these students as they go out in His name.

We invite you to join us in prayer each evening about 7:30 wherever you are. Pray for the people who are studying the Bible now, that they will be prepared to make decisions for Jesus during the evangelistic series while we are there. Pray for us that God will prepare us completely to serve Him, not only during the project, but that He will use it to prepare us beyond this project for whatever else He has in store. Pray also that funds will arrive to enable us to build a church for the believers in the village of Bonongan who desperately need a place to worship with thier expanding congregation.

If you are interested in helping financially, please visit our GoFundMe page here. Both your prayers and financial support are greatly valued. Thank you.
