In 2010, the entire fami-ly traveled together on a mis-sion trip for the first time.Much of the overseas trav-el these days, especially for mission groups, needs to besuperseded by some type of specialty that benefits thedifficult for us to get in,”Adams said. “We had to payeverybody for everything. Itcan be hard to get into some places, but the Lord alwaysmakes a way. We actually saw people get saved along theway as we were trying to getinto western Mozambique.“We went far into the back areas; there were no roads inthat area,” said Adams.“People along the route cameout with their hoes to helphack a way for the vehicle toget to the village.”Adams noted that people inthe area were eager to hear about the Bible and the Gospelof Christ.“They had never seen anywhite people,” observedAdams. “They gathered tocome out to meet us. Everyonein ear shot came to knowChrist. The folks were ripe for the Gospel, it was just a matter of showing up.”During their short visitthere, Adams said, over 1,000 people made commitments totheir Christian faith.“There was no Bible teach-ing and they weren’t familiar with the Gospel of Christ,”Adams said.Rachael said part of their follow up in the area will be people of that area.Rachael taught Englishoverseas, while the pair hashelped in orphanages withchild and health care andeveryday things that need to be done.“We both are very muchinto feeding the poor whatev-er way we can,” said Rachael.“It’s true that we find it veryimportant to us to practicallyshow the love of Jesus in ac-tion and not just word.”In the case of Paul’sMalawi-Mozambique trip, themissions group was forced to pay large entrance fees inorder to enter the area.“We ran into the border pa-trol agents who really made it

Educators continue busy schedules during ‘down time’
By JOE SHOUSECorrespondent
Part 2 of 2
With college classes to take, sportscamps to oversee, and the responsibil-ity of extracurricular activities, manyeducators spend their summers withlittle time off.
At Oakwood Elementary, KellySnyder, with 26 years experience, allat Oakwood, continues to developnew ways to ease the tension for in-coming kindergartners. At the end of June, Snyder and co-kindergartenteacher Kylee Miller offered an op-portunity for the new kindergartenstudents to attend a one-hour summer camp session.“It was simply a time for teachersand students to spend time together.This is the fourth year for the campand it seems to be working,” saidSnyder.The summer camp met at theOakwood ball field and 22 families at-tended. There was a time for singingsongs, a craft project, and getting bet-ter acquainted. The outing was such asuccess according to Snyder that an-other event will be scheduled prior tothe school year starting.“This time it will be a teacher, prin-cipal, student night. We plan to meeton the school play ground and meetthe families one-on-one. We plan tohave one of the school buses on site togive the children the opportunity to become more familiar with riding the bus for the first time,” Snyder said.Later in the summer, Snyder plansto attend the University of Findlaywhere she will attend the MazzaSummer Conference. “It’s a great op- portunity to see what children’s au-thors and illustrators are offering tohelp better the classroom setting. It’s atime of gaining new ideas while meet-ing people in the field of education.”Snyder, a graduate of PauldingHigh School, attended Ohio StateUniversity, where she received her undergraduate degree, and her mas-ter’s degree from Defiance. She livesnorth of Oakwood with her husband,Mel. They have one son who attendsOhio University.Oftentimes people may have theidea when class is dismissed on thelast day of school many who work inthe office also head for their car in the parking lot for a 10-week vacation.That’s not the case at all and for Antwerp district treasurer KristinStuart the summer can become themost hectic time of the year.Stuart wears several hats as the dis-trict’s treasurer including payroll man-ager, helping prepare budgets bothshort and long term, and secretary of the school board, to name a few.“It’s 8 to 4 every day during theschool year and it is pretty much thesame in the summer. I was hoping totake a Friday off now and then duringthe summer, but so far it hasn’t hap- pened,” she said.Stuart has served the district for three years; prior to coming toAntwerp, she was treasurer for Western Buckeye EducationalService Center.“Our fiscal year ends on June 30and the last two weeks of June arevery busy trying to close out all thecurrent accounts and getting ready for the new year.”Like teachers, Stuart is responsiblefor attending workshops and confer-ences in order to keep her treasurer’slicense that is issued by the OhioDepartment of Education.“This summer has been a little un-usual with negotiations going on andnew salaries being projected. Duringearly July, I found myself workingover and then by the end of July thingswill settle down and becomes a littlemore normal, but then it will soon beAugust and school will be starting,”said Stuart.Stuart, a graduate at DefianceCollege where she received her bach-elor’s in accounting, lives in theAntwerp district with her husband,Kevin, who is employed at thePaulding County Engineer’s office.Amy Hammer and her husband,TJ, could probably call the Antwerpgym their home away from home dur-ing the summer. Amy is the girls’ vol-leyball coach while TJ is the boys’varsity basketball coach.“In June we had volleyball campfor a week. During the morning it wasgrades 2 through 8 and the highschool camp was in the afternoon,”said Amy.In both June and July, varsity prospects attended a volleyball leagueat Defiance College each Monday.Hammer also had her team involvedin the team camp at Bluffton College.“It’s been intense for these girls. Wealso have open gym and weightliftingon Thursdays.”Hammer, who is in her 11th year,teaches first grade reading and secondgrade math and is active as a member of the technology committee. “Duringthe summer I am always on the look-out for innovative ways to bring tech-nology into the classroom to benefitour students.”Although school doesn’t start untilAug. 20, Amy plans to be back in theclassroom on Aug. 5, setting up her room for the arrival of her new stu-dents.Amy and TJ live in the Antwerparea and have three children. As active parents in the gym during the sum-mer, Amy continues her role as ateacher at home. “At home we spendtime reading together and we makeweekly trips to the library.”PAULDING – Dr. Kate Gilreath, originallyfrom Antwerp, will be starting her family prac-tice at Paulding County Hospital MedicalOffice Building on July 29.Dr. Gilreath graduated from Antwerp HighSchool in 2002, then attended MiamiUniversity of Ohio.
