Washington DC Trip 2019
By Patricia Fitting, GSAA History Teacher
One Senior and four Juniors enjoyed a week visiting the sites
in our nation's capital, Washington D.C., during the April homeleave.
Monuments were visited, Smithsonian Museums explored,
and history came to life. In addition to the White House, U.S. Capitol,
Supreme Court, the National Archives, and the Library of Congress,
the trip included a drive up to the military cemetery at Gettysburg
(not to mention some really yummy food!). Sabbath found us at the
Capitol Hill SDA Church where we worshipped with some amazing people
(if you are ever in D.C., you must visit this church)! The Lord blessed with
good weather and connecting us with some very kind and helpful people.
Not only did we get to learn more about our country, our students got to
"teach" others about some of the things they've learned in their classes!
Thank you for all the prayers and support.

"I loved to see places I've only read about, it was one of my best
high school experiences and I'll treasure the memories I made
for the rest of my life."
~Susi Aguirre

"It's cool to see history come to life. It was as if we entered
our history book and lived it."

The WORD and Nature.
"The mountains quake before him and the hills melt away. The earth trembles at his presence, the world and all who live in it."
Nahum 1:5 NIV
Science Zone
By Glen Wahlman, GSAA Science Teacher
Earth Science is finishing up its fossils studies.  To help the students in understanding the fossil process, Plaster of Paris was used.  Our first project was to place a dried leaf in fresh plaster.  When the leaf is removed it leaves an impression which is a mold fossil.  Our second project was to go outside and find some kitty tracks in the soft mud.  Plaster was poured into the track and when cured, it was removed for cleaning.  This left us with a cast fossil.  From an earlier field trip the students can now understand how the leaf fossils were made in the sedimentary rock of Succor Creek.

Spiritual Note
----------------------------
"By the parable of the sower, Christ illustrates the things of the kingdom of heaven, and the work of the great Husbandman for His people. Like a sower in the field, He came to scatter the heavenly grain of truth. And His parable teaching itself was the seed with which the most precious truths of His grace were sown... 
As the birds are ready to catch up the seed from the wayside, so Satan is ready to catch away the seeds of divine truth from the soul. He fears that the word of God may awaken the careless, and take effect upon the hardened heart...
The gospel seed often falls among thorns and noxious weeds; and if there is not a moral transformation in the human heart, if old habits and practices and the former life of sin are not left behind, if the attributes of Satan are not expelled from the soul, the wheat crop will be choked. The thorns will come to be the crop, and will kill out the wheat. "
