Macaroni and Cheese
school this Thursday at MVCA. Please come encourage and cheer on
all our students participating in this big day. It's always more enjoyable
to have positive reinforcement from friends and family during these
kinds of events. Coaches and students have put in a great deal of
time and effort so consider joining us on Thursday.

We have purchased MVCA t-shirts for events like serve projects, field
trips and times when our students are out in the community. This is a
great way for us to promote our school as well as keep track of our
students in large settings. We plan to use these from year to year but
if you would like to purchase one, please contact the office.

Blessings,
A BIG thank you to the Bontadelli

and dessert!

The 9th & 10th grade Biology students have been studying
microorganisms. They wit- nessed and documented the
growth of bacteria (Kingdom Monera) in pond samples
they collected and prepared. The number of bacteria multiplied exponentially
as they fed on rice, egg, and grass added to the samples. They died off after eat-
ing (decomposing) all the food. The only thing they didn't seem to eat was soil,
why? It's already been decomposed! They also learned how important these
creatures are to the ecosystem. Viewing the microscopic world opened the stu-
dents' eyes to the wonder of God's creation. Written by Mr. Lutz

Hello MVCA,
Pastor Jerry Roylance, who is part of the RSN board, traveled over to Taiwan with me.
He and another pastor came along with me because part of what we were doing, was an
ordination service for 5 ministers over there. It was very special.
Pastors from about 20 Christian church backgrounds, came and participated in the ser-
vice.
This included pastors from several indigenous people groups. Following the ordination
service, we traveled through the mountains for a couple of days, visiting ministries
in several high mountain villages. We had no idea that there was such an extensive high
mountain range in Taiwan.
We challenged church leaders, and spoke on the importance of relying on the Lord,
and endeavoring to truly strengthen one-another as the body of Christ across Taiwan.
Thanks, Chuck

Prayer at the ordination service


Time spent at a high mountain
village church, with girls doing
hand weaving to raise money for
their schooling.
The picture of the church with the ray of sun going
through the cross was beautiful in person.
The storm clouds were moving around, but that ray of
light remained on the cross for about 10 minutes! It was
stirring.
The mountains are at about 9000 feet. We were
amazed by how green it was at that altitude.
The picture is of Jerry teaching during a planning
meeting, being held by some missionaries from all over
Taiwan. Jerry's topic was practical things they can do to
strengthen the church.
