Pacific Sunrise Hawaii Grateful Hearts at Adventist Malama Elementary School


Adventist Malama Elementary School (AMES), located on the Leeward side of O’ahu, about an hour west of Honolulu, is a unique school in that 80 percent of the students are from other than Seventh-day Adventist homes. As a “missionary” school, teachers have the opportunity to introduce students and their families to the love of Jesus. “We have been blessed during the difficulties of this ongoing pandemic with the patience and loyalty of our students, families, and friends,” shared Cathie Workman, principal at AMES. While the teachers and staff frequently remind the students to “remember social distancing”, the little ones have adapted by discovering new adventures, such as catching lizards, chalk drawing, or playing six-feet-apart tag. Even during this social distancing, the students remind their teachers how happy they are to be face-to-face every day. The school’s remote learners can’t wait to rejoin when the number of COVID cases are lower. For the staff, the best part of every school day is at worship, when students ask for prayer requests for their families and give thanks to Jesus that they are safe with their friends at AMES. Even though their school day is split between academics, disinfecting and constant social distancing reminders, they feel blessed to be Christian teachers—especially now—and grateful for another day to be useful tools in God’s toolbox.
