Old School

I am privileged to work in an old school with much history. A mission from the Reformed Church in America was started in the late 1800s. Samuel Zwemer and James Cantine came and started a hospital, church and school. The three are still going strong today. I am fortunate to be able to be involved in each of these institutions–the American Mission Hospital, the Evangelical Church of Bahrain, and the Al Raja School.

Old school, literally. #cy365 #t365project

  3. Our school recently celebrated its 50th anniversary and as we prepare to move to a new campus the thinking about old and new has been and will continue to be important. It is fun and funny to see how people’s perceptions of old and new shifts. Nice idea.


    1. Yes, the history of institutions is fascinating. Congratulations on your 50 year celebration! We will celebrate our 130 year in two years!
