ONE OF THE OLDEST: James Memorial School, one of the oldest Adventist schools in India, needs new classrooms to accommodate the students who wish to enroll.For more than 100 years the Seventh-day Adventist Church has served this vast country by developing an educational system that provides so much more than an education.
MISSION SCHOOLS: Many nonmembers attend Adventist schools because of the quality of education they receive. Many eventually become Adventists.This culture of excellence attracts families who want the very best for their children. “The school has an enrollment of more than 900 students,” says Shanmugam. “But the facilities we have at present only accommodate 500 to 600 students. And in the coming years we may get more students. We need classrooms.”
NEW BUILDING NEEDED: Members of the Adventist Church in the village of Perayam look forward to worshipping in a new metal building provided by the financial support of Adventists around the world.The Thirteenth Sabbath Offering for the first quarter of 2011 will provide finances to build new classrooms on all three of these campuses—more than 40 new classrooms.
