The International Club sponsored a high school-wide “Flip Flop Drop” during the week of March 20-24, collecting flip flops of all sizes to be sent to Honduras. 337 pairs of flip flops were sent with the high school mission team as they travelled to Honduras with Louder Than Words Ministries over spring break, April 7-14. The students delivered the shoes to La Choguara, one of the poorest regions of Honduras in the department of Intibucá, according to Mark Moore, the team’s leader and teacher at Gaston Christian High School. Mr. Moore is also the Director of Louder Than Words Ministries.
The school’s mission team distributed some of the flip flops to ladies involved in a ladies’ Bible study, children taking part in Vacation Bible School, and men with whom they worked alongside of at various construction sites, just to name a few of the ministry opportunities.
The mission team included: (Students) Daniel Moore, Andrew Morgan, Breanna Barrett, Andie Ervay, Emily Egeln, Mary Kate Bowman, Blake Cobb, Will Morrison, Hannah Overton, Ashley McGraw, Ellise Zukaitis, Luke Springs, Laramie House, Olivia Haven, Payton Taylor, Patricia Williams, (International students) Tianyi “Alexander” Jiang , Chayathorn “Larry” Akramongkolrojn, and Ruixue “Snow” Zhou (Adults) Mark Moore, Becky Morrison, Michael Haven , Bill Egeln
Mrs. Brooks and Ms. Whitley took 16 of Gaston Christian School’s International students to Los Angeles, CA over Spring Break. While there, they toured the Griffith Observatory in LA, Hollywood’s Walk of Fame on Hollywood Blvd., the Warner Brothers’ Studios in Burbank, the San Diego Zoo, Santa Monica, Long Beach, and Disney Land. This was a first visit to La La Land for many of our students and a great opportunity to experience some of the Americana that they see in the movies. Before coming to school in America, the students’ expectation of what it is to live in the United States is seen through the lens of Hollywood. They have all found life to be very different once they are here, especially in North Carolina, but the slower pace of different is pretty good.
The varsity softball team is seeded #8 in the state tournament and will host Charlotte Christian on this Saturday, May 13 at 5:00 PM.
