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.

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.

Music Groups Visit Watertown And Oxford Churches

Last Sabbath, the Wisconsin Academy Choralaires and Handbells had the privilege of spending the day with the Watertown and Oxford churches.

Sabbath morning, the students led Sabbath School at Oxford 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.

In the afternoon, the students shared the same music program with the members of the Oxford church and enjoyed a wonderful potluck supper there as well.

This week, the Choralaires and Bells will be visiting the Green Bay Seventh-day Adventist Church. We invite you to come and worship with us if you are in the area.

Choralaires Sing for Assisted Living Residents

This afternoon, the Choralaires shared their music with the residents of The Meadows Assisted Living Center in Fall River. The program included songs from their upcoming tours.

Our singing groups usually visit The Meadows and other local nursing homes several times each year, bringing live Christian music and smiles to people who are often unable to leave home.

This is one of the many ways Wisconsin Academy is training students to be “Fit to Serve.

New Mission Project Video Promo

Help Build a Church in Bonongan!

Wish you could go with us to the Philippines? You can help and be a real part of builing a church in the village of Bonongan through your donations on our GoFundMe page here.

We are in the last stages of fundraising and need your help to secure the funding for  church construction. Stepping out in faith we have sent the first payment for the church building so the foundation may be dug and bricks made. We are trusting in God to impress hearts to give generously and provide the needed funds to finish the work.

All funds raised here will go directly to the church building project and not to other expenses. Those going on the project are responsible to raise their own airfare and accommodation expenses.

Preparation Continues for Philippines Mission Project

Spring Break is on the horizon, and with it, the 2017 mission project to the Philippines.

In the community of Bonongan, two Bible workers (pictured above) are already holding Bible studies and helping the local congregation be ready for the evangelistic meetings during our time there. The ground has been cleared and leveled for the church structure we will be building (see first picture below). There is great expectation as the pastor and local believers pray for the Holy Spirit to work in a special way this coming March.

Preparations are underway here in Wisconsin as well. Air tickets have been purchased, passports are being worked out, and many other behind-the-scenes details are being taken care of that few will ever see. Students and staff continue in hope and excitement, praying every day that God will pour out his Spirit in our lives and in the lives of the people in Bonongan.

During our two weeks in the community of Bonongan on the island of Culion, we will build a church, conduct a medical clinic, hold evangelistic meetings, and work with the children.

Students Donate Gifts for Needy Children

This afternoon, students loaded ten large bags of gifts into freshmen Bible teacher David Kabanje’s car. These bags of gifts, bought with donations from students, are bound for ten children in the Madison Area who would not otherwise have gifts this Christmas.

Several months ago, Mr. Kabanje asked his class to brainstorm ways to serve others in the community. After weeks of praying and planning, the class came up with a plan to partner with The Road Home Dane County to deliver gifts to children on Christmas.

Students campaigned in the dorm to raise money and worked cleaning community homes to earn money to buy the gifts. The money came in and the gifts were bought. The toys were carefully packaged in festive Christmas gift bags.

Because of the generosity and caring hearts of students here at Wisconsin Academy, ten children can look forward to opening gifts chosen just for them on Christmas day.

This is one of the many ways Wisconsin Academy is training students to be “Fit to Serve.

Girls’ Dorm Hosts Christmas Party for Kids

On Sunday evening, over twenty kids from the Wisconsin Academy church gathered with their moms in the girls’ dorm lobby for a Christmas party with gifts. Kids enjoyed making gingerbread houses, playing Marco Polo and musical chairs, coloring, and talking with the girls. The dorm girls enjoyed handing out Christmas presents that they had bought for each child at the end of the evening by the Christmas tree.

The party was planned and organized by the the girls’ club, which includes representatives from each class.
