Cambodia Mission Trip
The Cambodia Mission trip will be led by our Principal, Eric Johnson. For more information, or to participate in the trip, please email Eric at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- We will be going to Siem Reap, Cambodia. We will be staying at an orphanage and school that is run by an Adventist family. Our main focus will be on the children there at the orphanage. We will hold a VBS program each afternoon for the students in addition to completing a construction project. We will also set up a dental and a vision clinic to help the students.
- On Sabbath, we will divide the group and go out to village churches. The students will preach with a translator and be able to interact with the local church members.
- We will take a day to visit Angkor Wat temple complex.
- On a couple of evenings, we will go into Siem Reap and visit the night markets.
- We will depart UCA on Sunday evening, March 15 and return early on Friday morning, March 27.
- The total cost for the trip is $1,900. This includes all food, lodging, airfare, excursion to Angkor Wat and fee for visa to enter Cambodia.
Mr. Johnson is currently looking for a dentist and an optometrist or ophthalmologist that can lead out in our dental/vision clinic. He is also looking for some adults who would like to help with the construction project and VBS program. A $100 deposit must be paid by October 14. Mr. Johnson will be giving the students letters that they can write to help raise the needed funds.
Malawi Mission Trip
This year we will travel to the continent of Africa. There we will hold evangelistic meetings, a medical clinic, a VBS, and remodel classrooms and faculty homes. The location is a boarding school called Lunjika in Malawi. We will leave on March 15 and return on March 27. The cost of the trip for students is $2,500. Some adults are needed to go on the trip, and applications for students and adults are available in the Principal’s Office. Please contact Charles or Loralee Paulson, President/Director of Operation Planet, for more information. (509) 869-7795, email@example.com.
Class Elections will be held on Wednesday, October 2, 2019, beginning at 3rd period. Note the change from the calendar. We moved the elections so our UCA Extension students could be on campus and participate. Locations for each class will be announced–watch the digital screens.
