From the Director’s Desk
What a week! Thank you to so many of you who volunteered to make this Week Without Walls possible. Of course we are thankful to Mr. Whitehurst and his team for organizing all of the details, but I love the way our community can be depended on in countless ways to make the week actually happen. We truly are blessed to be a part of such a generous community! Last week Mr. Whitehurst asked for three things from our community – Prayer, Transportation, and Attendance. Thank you for your diligent prayers, for offering your vehicles, and for ensuring the students were here on time so that the projects would run smoothly.
At the time of writing this article, the students are preparing to present all that they did and what they learned this week. As you have next week off, please feel free to probe further into what they learned. When students participate in activities that are not part of the normal routine, they can be incredible opportunities for reflection. Ask your child questions such as; Why do you think BAIS takes a week to have students do WWW? What was your favorite part, least favorite part? Did you do something this week that you hope and pray will be part of your life when you leave BAIS? Ask them questions to get them to think about how their time spent this week will continue to help them think about how to serve and love others going forward.
Thank you again for the opportunity to partner with you in the education of your children. Have blessed and restful Spring Break!
Mr. Karl Nielsen
From the WWW Committees
Thank you for your partnership in making this years WWW a huge success. All of our groups served well and truly made a difference in our community. Not only were the walls of our campus removed when it came to us reaching out but also when it came to us allowing others to come in. We had over 100 guest from neighboring schools and universities come to BAIS where our students and staff were able to serve them through drama and activities. We believe that seeds were planted in all of their lives as the
love of Jesus shined through our BAIS community.
Our students loved on kids with cancer and specials needs, ministered to young men in prison, blessed our local community workers, invested in a pastor and church congregation, prayed over our community, loved on unwed mothers and babies, and so much more.
This was a team effort and we want to thank you for the part you play on this team. From our students serving, our staff leading, and our parents providing a way for us to get to every ministry opportunity we learned that Together Everyone Accomplishes More.
