This past weekend, prospective students and their parents joined us as our guests for Academy Days 2014. They were able to come alongside us and experience our classes, vocational programs, worships, and outreach activities from Thursday afternoon to Sunday morning. Both students and visitors had a great time meeting new friends and spending time with each other! If you were not able to come for Academy Days but would still like to visit, feel free to call us and arrange a trip to see the school. We would be happy to see you!

This semester academy students in Physical Science will be spending time studying current technology and design topics that include handheld devices, networks and communication, audio and visual tech, and principles of product design. Students were given the opportunity to choose some specific aspects of each category, and they created a list of interests that range from microphones to touchscreens to prosthetic devices. It should be a very interesting semester!

This past Sunday, students and staff took part in the school’s second annual International Food Fair. Having an ethnologically diverse school body comes in handy when it comes to events like these, and many faculty members gladly contributed with dishes from their own cultures or cultures they are familiar with. Students were also able to join in the fun by signing up to help different staff members cook. “Not only did we get to try many new and delicious cuisines, but we also learned a lot about other countries around the world,” says a student. All in all, it was a great success, and we are already looking forward to next year’s!

This past semester a group of us students, along with Pastor Solér, had the wonderful opportunity to travel to Cuba for a mission trip. We found ourselves in the western-most part of the beautiful island, in a region called Pinar del Rio. It was our pleasure to hold evangelistic series’ at four different churches, including the one we stayed at. By the end of our meetings, ten people had been baptized, ten more were scheduled, and over forty others had expressed a desire to study more and someday be baptized as well. Praise the Lord! Please pray for the Holy Spirit to continue to strengthen and multiply the believers in Cuba, as well as around the world. – Lindsey House, OHC Freshman
It’s amazing how, even though it happens every semester, Week of Prayer is a fresh blessing every time. This week guest speakers Chad and Faudia Kreuzer have shared a powerful series of talks about health, the brain, and spending time with God – all highlighting the importance of following God’s blueprint for our lives. God has called each one of us higher, and many students and staff have made decisions for positive change. May the assurance of 1 John 4:4 resound in our hearts – “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
