Issue 27 – April 7, 2017

From the BAIS Chaplain’s Desk

Our chapel theme for the 2016-2017 school year has been focused on the fact that we are the Body of Christ (Ephesians 2:19-22). My hope and prayer for the year has been that all of our students, preschool through twelfth grade, would arrive at the same conclusion: They have been knit together by our Creator for a specific purpose; with experiences, talents, and abilities unique to each one individually for the good of the entire Body. As the Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Corinth (1 Corinthians 12:12-31), the health and success of the Body is dependent upon each part working as it was intended in service for the good of the whole. This truth is not exclusively revealed in Scripture. God has illustrated this truth throughout human history; collectively telling the same story through individual lives and communities ranging from exploring new lands, to building barns, to winning freedom for oppressed peoples. This week I found another illustration in a book I’m reading entitled, Grace Under Fire: Letters of Faith in Times of War. In this one particular letter, Technical Sergeant Joe Graser was writing to his brother during World War II. As I read the letter, I discovered that if I were to substitute “Army” for “God” in my mind as I read and envisioned the collective Body of Christ as Joes community, I discovered Paul’s teachings once again.

I have been wanting to tell you a few things about life in the Army… There will be times, especially at first, that you will think you never saw such bullheaded, roundabout, stupid men in your life. Many of these will be our superiors, & they will issue orders that contradict, cancel, reign you & your ideas of success. You will live next to men, that represent types only known to you in the funny papers. Lots of these will have habits that are rare.

Remember this, the Army has a reason for everything it does…Always think of that when things get pretty rough & you feel like sounding off…

This is about the men you live with, and you will find that no matter how wrong any of them are, they all have real decent ideals in their hearts.

Try to understand & appreciate all their various ways of living. I will go as far as to say that even more than in the store or school, the more friends you can make, the better off you will be…(you) are entirely depending on those around you. You will be surprised at how often little friendships can benefit you…

The Army will always take care of you in such things as food, clothing & medical care, but to make your living conditions more pleasant, will be all up to you.

Be as kind and jolly as possible, for kindness & happiness will mean a lot to you, especially in your spare time.

Always remember that whatever your job may be, it is just as important in winning the war, as that of a General.

I encourage you to look around today and take note of the multitude ways God is illustrating His Word. Remember that Truth in this world is true, regardless of the circumstances, and applies in every way, to every person, every day! May we all strive to live in selfless service to those around us every day, remembering that it is the community that builds the individual and not the individual that defines the community. I remember my mom teaching me the proverbial saying, “Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are.” King Solomon said it this way, “He who walks with wise men will be wise…” (Proverbs 13:20)

Blessing,
Mr. Steven Newell

Model United Nations Club

After a successful first trimester for BAIS’s Model United Nations club, we are excited to continue the club from April until the end of May. Last trimester, students learned about public speaking, debate, critical thinking, and communication to prepare to represent countries within a mock United Nations conference at Universitas Katolik Parahyangan. By training on how to role-play, research another country, and defend their positions, participants learned skills essential not only in their high school years but also their future careers. At the final Model United Nations conference, on the topic of youth empowerment, our delegates were actively involved in creating resolutions that would best fit the goals of the United Nations. Not only were we able to create friendships with other participating schools such as BPK Penabur and Cahaya Bangsa, Jessica Hirianto ultimately brought home the Best Spokesperson award for the conference.

Now, we want to invite all high school students to a final trimester for the MUN club. The club will take place once a week. Below is important information:

  • Day and Time: Thursdays 3:40-4:40 PM
  • Grade Levels: High School Starting
  • Date: Thursday, April 13, 2017

*While Swimmers will unfortunately be unable to join the club, the club is open to Cross Country and Badminton participants as the club will start after their IISSAC weekends.

If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Travis Julian at travisjulian@baisedu.org or Ricky Toh at rickytoh@baisedu.org.

We hope to see you there!

Best regards,
Ricky Toh
