From the Field: April 29, 2012

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ – Matthew 25:34-36 (NIV)

Our Honor students for the fourth academic period are: Herbert McClain, Sidiki Jabateh, Joy Appleton, Edet Samukai, we extend congratulations to all. We celebrated with a meal that was foreign to them yet proved to be delicious.  The honor students were served, “Aunt Jemima”  pancakes and syrup. Yummy, they loved them. Of course, I the cook had a couple as well.
