Our Big New School
My friends and I want to wish you a happy Sabbath from the Central African country of Gabon! My name is Marion-Melrose, and I live in Libreville, the capital of our nation.
I’m 12 years old and in grade eight. My favorite subjects in school are French and math, and I want to become a nurse someday.
I’d like to attend our Adventist secondary school, but for now I have to go to public school. It’s hard because many of my classmates don’t know Jesus and are involved in drinking and drugs.
I’m thankful for the opportunities God’s given me to share my faith, but I would really like to have teachers and classmates who encourage me to be a strong Christian.
The Thirteenth Sabbath Offering this quarter will help us build a large, new secondary school in Gabon. When it’s ready, many Adventist kids will be able to attend an Adventist school for the first time. Plus, non-Adventist students whose parents want them to learn about Jesus will be able to go there too.
Please give generously to the Thirteenth Sabbath Offering this quarter so that we can reach more children in Gabon for Jesus. Thank you!
I’m Fhabiola. I’m 18 and in grade 11. I’d love to be able to go to an Adventist school where I’m not required to take my exams on Sabbath. This is a challenge faced by every Adventist student in Gabon who has to go to public school.
I can’t tell you how happy I am that the Thirteenth Sabbath Offering this quarter will help build a new secondary school in my country. It will be large enough for hundreds of Adventist kids to attend, and they’ll never have to struggle with exams on Sabbath again!
Please help us have our school by giving to the Thirteenth Sabbath Offering this quarter.
I’m Georges Daniel. I’m 16 and in grade 11. My favorite subject is science and I enjoy playing the guitar.
We have only one Adventist secondary school in my country, and I feel so blessed that I’m able to attend. Being a student here has not only helped my faith grow stronger, it’s given me an opportunity to share my beliefs with my classmates who are members of other religions.
When our teacher talked about Creation the other day, my friend Marie asked me all sorts of questions about it. I helped her find answers in the Bible. When she asked me about my church, I was able to tell her about some of our beliefs. Marie and I began to pray together every day.
I invited Marie to some meetings we have at school to study the Bible. She attended, and when the meetings were over, she gave her heart to Jesus and was baptized! I felt so happy that God had given me the privilege of sharing Him with my friend.
The Thirteenth Sabbath Offering this quarter will help us build a new secondary school in Gabon. Please help us in our mission to reach the kids of Gabon for Jesus by giving generously. Thanks!
