Danny and Nancy Hill, from Alabama, came all of the way to South Carolina, attended our church, and even dared to listen to me teach a SS class—why? All of this to get their certificates from INS signed. For them, it provided a bit of the “graduation service” that we normally are unable to have since our students are all around the world. We were so happy to see them and we hope that this will not be the last time graduates will make the trip. We will sign your diplomas in absentiaI of course, if you can’t. But it was so nice of them to make the effort.
I hope all of you students out there are doing well. I corresponded yesterday with our New Zealand affiliate, following the earthquake. They are safe and well, but evidently affected indirectly by it. Pray for them as they work at organizing and promoting the Institute for Nouthetic Studies in that country.
