Bible Class SparksConversations at HMA Windward Campus
At Hawaiian Mission Academy (HMA) Windward Campus in Kailua, Hawaii, Bible class sparks important discussions—and recently students talked about spiritual journeys. During a class discussion about the Biblical story of Joseph, Hilda Scott, 7th and 8th-grade teacher and principal of HMA Windward Campus, assigned students to write a testimony. After defining the word for her students, one of Scott’s 7th-grade students responded, “Hmmm… my spiritual journey began… right here,” he said, pointing to the month of August on a calendar. “Because that’s when school started.” For Scott, helping students experience Jesus in a real way is why she is passionate about teaching. “God loves us just as we are, wherever we are on our spiritual journey,” she said.
