Lodi Academy Sophomores Bring World History to Life
What a time to be a sophomore at Lodi Academy! World History students at Lodi Academy are learning more about Roman history than just from lessons out of a book. Class last week included the building of aqueducts to learn about drop rates, gradients, water pressure, and Roman engineering ingenuity. Teams worked together to build canals and pipes to simulate different terrain levels and conduits for their water systems. Next, they will study Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, and the AP Art History class will soon learn about the art of the empire. Teacher Jonathan Solis shared his view: “I try to find ways to bring more hands-on learning to history. The context comes alive with their experiences, and it is my hope they will enjoy the process more and remember the lessons with enthusiasm.”

Volunteers Re-Roof Church
in Page, Arizona
In late September, volunteers from Build and Restore International arrived in Page, Arizona, ready and willing to help the Page All Nations church with a big project. The volunteers, some of whom are licensed contractors and painters, re-roofed the church building and parsonage and repainted the church exterior. According to members of the local church, it was an answer to prayer. God led, and every detail fell into place!
