From the Director’s Desk

Last week we were able to see the body of Christ in action through the many activities and events that took place on and off our campus. It was a very busy weekend! I am grateful to each person who played a part to make each of the events happen. I am continually grateful for a community who so selflessly serves.

I want to specifically thank all the parents and BAIS staff who volunteered to work at the PVJ event. It was so much fun for me to see you all in action, speaking so openly and confidently with those who visited our booth. Thank you for the encouragement and thank you for making the name of BAIS more widely known in Bandung! My goal was to have 50 people willing to give us their email address and/or phone number to gain more information about BAIS. that goal was surpassed, and we had 62 families interested in more information about BAIS! Praise God for the tremendous turnout! Please continue to pray for those families. We are confident that God will make it abundantly clear to those who He is leading to send their children to BAIS.

The next step with these families who have shown interest is to have them come to an open house. We have scheduled two open houses; one is on November 10th and a second one will take place on November 24th. Both are on Saturdays and will run from 9am to 12noon. Please pray that we are able to represent BAIS well! More information will be coming about the details of the open houses.

Reenrollment Announcements!

Due to an increased interest in some of our grade levels, we will be asking for re-enrollment commitments from our current families before Christmas break. Before re-enrollment is due, the tuition rates will be set for the 2019-2020 school year. Please be on the lookout for information about this soon!

Together in Him,
Karl Nielsen
Director
