While the country is on lockdown, 26 international students and LAC House staff have created their own bubble on campus. There have been many activities over the school holidays, from outdoor movie nights & sports to taekwondo and money matters courses organised by the boarding deans.
On Wednesday the local newspaper, The Manawatu Standard, visited to report this article: https://www.stuff.co.nz/manawatu-standard/news/120874803/longburn-adventist-college-hosts-international-bubble
One of the highlights of the school holidays so far was last nights Agape celebration. LAC House started the Easter weekend by commemorating Passover with an Agape feast and a Communion service which included a service of humility (foot washing). The whole evening was a wonderful celebration of Christ’s victory on the cross and recognising His sacrifice for the forgiveness of our sins.
“I thank God every time I think of each of you, tonight’s service was such a blessing and privilege to worship Almighty God in our very own bubble. Well done body of Christ. Jesus is Lord”.Maria Henry, Boarding Director
It has been tremendous to see that by God’s grace, LAC House has become a refuge for the boarders and staff. Especially when so many people are struggling with so much hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We would also like to pay tribute to Mrs Erni Chen and her catering team for being our essential food service, and allowing the rest of LAC House to focus on daily routines and activities.
