Classes resumed after a five-day vacation in time with the celebration of the All Saints’ and Souls’ Days. Students spent their long weekend vacation with their families and in their respective churches.

November 13 – 15

The ABS team that has gone to Northern Isabela Academy (NIA) at Calinaoan, Sto.Tomas, Isabela a month earlier, with the addition of two other members, was again invited to go to Central Isabela Christian Academy (CICA), Marana I, Ilagan City last November 13 – 15 to lead in their Religious Emphasis program. The CICA theme was with the theme “Rebuilding our Faith in Obedience to Christ”. Sis Grace L. Alvarez and Bro. Nick Ulrich were again the team leaders. A big big hand for Mrs. Grace L. Alvarez who always find time to lead the praise team, in spite of her hectic schedule practicing students for the Christmas Cantata.

Highlights of the activity were the early morning services with all the students, competition in the different categories like Scripture recitation, Slogan and Poster Making and Essay writing, Skit and Vocal Solo. The team also went from room to room sharing the Word and teaching new praise songs.

The power of His Word was again greatly manifested. Sixty nine (69) students received the Lord and were added to His fold. This was another big harvest for the Lord. To God be all the glory and praise!

Our big bang to the leadership of the Central Isabela Christian Academy (CICA) through Mr. Rogelio F. Tenorio, School Director. More harvest will be reaped as we work together in His vineyard. Your support to our team plays a great deal in bringing salvation to many and developing our students in their preparation for ministry. We share the joy with you. Let us strengthen our partnership in reaching the unreached, the unchurched to bringing them into His church.

Our heartfelt thanks to the Administration of Charles W. Selby Memorial Hospital (CWSMH) and the Board of Trustees. Hazel Bacuyag Banada, the hospital chief nurse, her companions, Daryll Renz Sapp and G-nnel Lorenz Delector, conducted a free half- day lecture, with free snacks, about Health and Hazard Safety Training Course, all as preventive and precautionary measures for one’s health.

It is so good to be able to work together, after years of severed relationship between the two (2) institutions started by the couple Charles and Roberta Selby. All glory and honor to the Lord who has given us the opportunity of serving Him.

All these are what God is doing in this part of the globe, through the Aparri Bible Seminary. Thank you very much for being a part of this ministry. “God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them” (Heb. 6:10). God bless you all, brethren.
