Abias feels thankful to be a part of Calvary Junior Academy because:
Abias is grateful for the support which has made a BIG impact for the school!
"When I joined the school, there was no desired infrastructure, no ample school land, or an attractive study environment. But thanks to God who touched loving & caring hearts, which has tremendously improved the school's physical outlook. We now have land which enables children to participate & practice agriculture, a conducive learning environment in permanent classrooms, a clean, all-weather water source, provision of daily meals to children, and regular teacher salaries despite inconsistent, irregular ability for community support. These things we could not dream of in the history of the school! It is indescribable the joy to be able to help families of orphans & vulnerable children with secondary students' tuition fees. Also the sponsorship program, which my own children have received sponsors from, is a blessing. The lovely & growing pen pal relationship with Fall Creek Elementary is exciting for our whole community as it is helping us to all learn about children thousands of miles away. Their gift of 2 milk cows is something I thank God for because our children's nutrition improvement will be greatly increased. We benefit so much from this relationship."
"I want to say that I thank God for the gift of life & my family survival. Teaching at Calvary has enabled me to afford to look after my children by providing food for them, tuition fees in their schools, clothings and all other basic necessities."
"One of my most memorable days was when the Cheeseman family visited our school. To me the school looked like a patient who was at a death point due to lack of blood & someone - this family & friends - donated life-giving blood & reinstated life. Since then, smiles on our faces have never disappeared. It was awesome turning point in the life of the school's existence & marked a great new era which has been attained & is being reflected in the love for working in this institution."
"Another great day was when our school won all neighboring schools in the sports competitions this year - 2014. It was a remarkable day for the children, the teachers and the guardians."
Joined Calvary in 2009
Gilbert was married on June 28, 2014 to Noeline. We are so excited for them!
Gilbert lost both parents 5 & 6 years ago and is the caregiver for 3 sisters and 1 brother.
"My most favorable day is last year, May/ June, when Jennifer and Michael, Lori & Jen visited our school. It was so because I had longed and dreamt of receiving education supporters. So thanks to Almighty who sent you to our school." I thank God for my family and the lives offered & also for the recovery of the dad who has been sick for the last 3 months. Our prayer to God is that He blesses those committing themselves to helping Calvary Junior Academy. For God and our school, thank you!"
