We are leaving this morning for Honduras! Please keep us in your prayers as we travel and minister this week. This is the last section of the OLD School Semester 2013. Pray that the LORD will make this a rich time of ministry, discipleship, community, and reflection!
We’ve been so blessed this semester by the ministry of our Proctors. As you may know, the Proctors are staff members that are a consistent voice of discipleship on the semester. These two are on the four longest sections of OLD School with the students: Backpacking, Rock Climbing, Caving and Sea Kayaking. The Proctors are an essential part of the discipleship and leadership training that the students sit under.
We are privileged this year to have two former OLD School Semester grads as proctors!
Josh Martin is an OLD School grad from 2007! Josh has been leading OLD School courses for the last 3 years. He was one of our main instructors this summer, leading 4 week-long courses. In addition, Josh led our semester caving course in 2012. Josh has an aviation degree and is a pilot and airplane mechanic as well!
Shelby is an OLD School grad from 2010! She has led numerous Summer OLD School week long courses, both all-girl courses and co-ed. Shelby has worked on summer staff with Snowbird Outfitters for three summers now, and interned here for one full year. She writes, “The OLD School semester had such an amazing impact on my life, and I have since then desired to be a part of the program. I love the outdoors, and I love teaching people about Jesus as others have taught me. I know that God has blessed me with a great opportunity to serve him and serve others through a program that I am so passionate about because it glorifies God and preaches his gospel without shame. I am honored and excited as God’s workmanship, to be able to walk in the good works which He has prepared beforehand (Ephesians 2:10).”
Please continue to pray for our staff and students!
