Renewing the Mind

www.frenchcamp.org

Renewing the Mind…Paul in Romans 12 makes it clear to God’s people that an ongoing effort to renew our minds is an act of worship. Being different, not conforming to ungodly standards of the world, is a process that the child of God must embrace. Just recently, one of our “staffers” had a meaningful dialogue with a student (let’s call her Josie) who is working hard to renew her mind. Many of our students struggle with self-image and worry how others view them. When peers are mean-spirited with their words, like the situation with Josie, what a challenge it is to allow God’s Word to inform us on our true identity in Christ! Read the beautiful insight given to Josie who is diligently working to have a different view of the world. These are words of life from one called to work with young people who has “been there, done that,” but has been shaped over the years by God’s Word to think differently, and by God’s grace is able to build others up with her words. What brought me healing was talking to the Lord about how deeply the words hurt, how they brought back all the past rejections and messages that I was unwanted and unloved and uncared for. And grieving the loss of people who should have loved me unconditionally—like my family—who failed to show me the beauty of unconditional-super-glue-like, never-letting-go kind of love. And then realizing the reality that even if Thinking like Jesus is a BIG aim of French Camp Acadmy family rejected me and didn’t want me, even emy. House parents, teachers, and support staff are called to if no one in the world wanted me or cared about help young people re-think how they think about life. The me or loved me, that God did. That God loved application is multi-leveled: the biology class, self-image, came so much He didn’t spare His Own Son. That Jesus loved me so much, He reer choices, marriage, theology, time management, etc. was willing to be called names, and mocked, and spat upon, and beaten, and crucified because that was how much He loved me. As you respond in appreciation for God’s good work in your life by daily renewing your mind, pray for the young people at French Camp Knowing, believing, embracing the reality that God loved me THAT Academy and the staff charged with caring for their needs. ◆ much, enabled me to love people even when they were cruel. It enabled me to think like Jesus, ‘Forgive them, Father, for they don’t know what they do.’ The reality is that ‘hurt people hurt people.’ In the same way, forgiven people forgive people. Healed people bring healing to others. Loved people love people. Even when they don’t deserve it.

The President’s Perspective:

French Camp TODAY

The Fourth Man in the Fire As our Seniors “commence” to move on from the halls of French Camp Academy, they do so with a great deal of knowledge not only about academics, athletics, and extracurricular—but, more importantly, life principles spelled out in God’s Word. We go to great efforts to ensure every subject area is taught from a Christian World and Life view and that all our staff are striving to model what an authentic relationship with God looks like. I use the term “authentic” to illustrate that relationship with God is not always easy. In fact, many times it may be very hard, but all the while those who have placed their trust in God are promised that He will never leave them nor forsake them. Recently, in a Sunday evening service, I was reminded that God could have done several things to save three young devoted men who refused to bow down to the king’s golden idle. (Daniel 3:8—The punishment for not bowing was to be killed in a blazing furnace.) God saved them in an unusual way that we would probably not have chosen. God could have struck the king dead, he could have killed the guards who were throwing them in the furnace, he could have blown up the furnace, sent a band of

angels to their rescue— yet God chose none of those ways to save them. Instead, after the three young men were thrown into the blazing furnace, the king looked in and saw four men in the flames. They were talking and walking around to the King’s amazement. I believe that the fourth man in the fire was the pre-incarnate King of the world—the Lord Jesus Christ. God did not save them from the fire, but He entered into the fire with them. God came alongside these young men in the midst of their terrifying ordeal. God still does that today for His children. In fact, God has given His Son so that He can continue to have relationship with us—a sinful people. He has given us the greatest gift He could (Jesus) to save us and restore a right relationship with Him. Do you find yourself in the midst of a trial today? God is willing and able to step into any situation with you if you will call to Him in repentance and faith. God longs to come alongside you amid your ordeals too. The relationship God desires for you is a good one. His heart is for you and not against you. As we bring the 133rd year of French Camp’s ministry to a close, please pray for our seniors as they leave us to forge their own way. Pray that when times get tough they will remember the truths they have learned during their time with us. Pray that they will choose life. We hope you will too.

Ed and Margaret Maehlmann Retire Ed and Margaret Maehlmann are retiring May 31 after 35 tireless years at French Camp Academy. They joined FCA as dorm parents in 1983 and have served with selfless dedication. In his time at the academy, Ed has taught English and Bible classes as well as modeling a strong work ethic to students on work crew. Margaret spent many years on air at WFCA before transitioning into her position as the receptionist at the Welcome Center. The Maehlmanns are looking forward to traveling before settling down in their new home near their children and grandchildren. They will be greatly missed by many. A reception was held Saturday, May 5, 2018 where students, family, and friends honored them for their dedication to French Camp Academy. ◆

Helen Boyd Retires One of the most popular voices in WFCA on air advertising, Helen Boyd, retired after almost thirtyone years of faithful service. Helen’s love of the Lord shines through her love of people. Her infectious energy and gregarious personality helped her lead advertising sales for WFCA for twenty-six years. During that time, she maintained a relationship with over five hundred advertisers and has passionately presented the Gospel to thousands.

In 1992 Helen was actively involved in beginning a tennis team at French Camp Academy. She has been a devoted volunteer coach for twenty-six years at FCA inspiring a love of the game to countless students. We are grateful she will enthusiastically continue in that role with future students as she continues to serve the Lord here at French Camp Academy. ◆

Hear, o sons, a father’s instruction, and be attentive, that you may gain insight, for I give you good precepts, do not forsake my teaching. —Proverbs 4: 1-2

Charitable Gift Annuity— Another way to think about your future...and FCA! A Charitable Gift Annuity is a simple, secure arrangement that benefits French Camp Academy, provides an income to you and/or a loved one, and offers substantial tax benefits. If you are 60 years or older (or 65 for two individuals), make a gift of $10,000 or more with cash or appreciated stocks (part of which is tax-deductible), and receive fixed annuity payments for life or for an agreed term. The remainder of your gift goes to support the work of French Camp Academy at the end of the annuitant(s) lifetime or at the end of the agreed term.

Regions Bank in Jackson, MS provided 10 bicycles this spring for FCA students and staff to enjoy around campus. Pictured from left to right are: Stewart Edwards, FCA president; Monica Owen and Jim Purdie, representatives from Regions Bank; Mitzi Watkins, FCA Wellness Committee; Todd Marion, FCA VP and CFO; and Hugh Potts, Jr., FCA Board chairman. ◆

As you think more about this type of planning, know that payment rates will vary depending on the number of annuitants, the age of the annuitants, the gift date, and the date when payments begin. You may receive payments on an annual, semi-annual, quarterly, or monthly basis. If you are ready to talk more or receive an illustration of how a Charitable Gift Annuity might look for you, email Lance Ragsdale at lragsdale@ frenchcamp.org or call 662-547-6482. Lance would be glad to answer your questions. ◆

The Monsanto Fund focuses its philanthropic endeavors on farm communities providing food and nutrition, education, and community development projects around the world. We are thankful for Monsanto’s investment into French Camp Academy! ◆

Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation, for you I wait all the day long.

HS Beta Club High School Beta Club had a great time this year at the state Beta Club convention in Biloxi. Twenty-eight students attended along with staff members Anna Chesteen, Vickie Robinson, and Todd Marion.   Amber Nesbitt won 4th place in the Poetry Division I competition by composing a 6-stanza poem. She was given one hour to compose a poem based on the theme “a single shoe in the middle of the road” given by the judges at the time of competition.   Jeffrey Jones won 3rd place in the Social Studies Division. Melanie Koroluk won 1st place in the Spanish Division.   After passing a general knowledge test to qualify to compete in the formal interview, Cassidy Smith won 4th place in the senior scholarship competition.   Finally, our Living Literature team won 2nd place. This consisted of 10 people portraying a scene from a piece of literature and freezing in place while being judged. The team chose to portray the scene from Luke 8:40-48 in which Jesus heals a sick woman when she touches the hem of his garment.   Our students put a lot of time and energy into each competition and we’re very proud of them and  excited that their hard work paid off! We are blessed to be able to make the trip to Biloxi each year and give God all the glory for our success and safety. We are now preparing to attend the National Beta Club convention in Savannah, Georgia in June to participate in their competitions at the national level. ◆

An Alumna Looks Back by Michaela Parker

As a student living in the area, I experienced French Camp Academy differently than people who live in the campus homes. FCA may have been just the place where I attended high school, but it was so much more than that. Sure I received a great education, but more importantly, I was cared for, loved, encouraged, and pointed to Christ. I graduated in 2013 with a grand total of 28 classmates. When I tell my friends I graduated with that many, they are shocked at the small class size. Having such a small class was so much fun because I was able to know and befriend everyone in my class. I loved the small school scene and decided to further my education at Mississippi College. I graduated in 2016 with a degree in communications with an emphasis in public relations and journalism. In high school, I was the girl everyone tried their hardest to avoid. Why? Because I was on the yearbook staff. I constantly carried my camera with me to events and school hoping to get that perfect picture. I served on staff for all four years. Most of my time after school was spent at WFCA Radio, which is where I worked all four years of high school. That opportunity was one like none other, and sitting behind a microphone is where I discovered my love for communications.

I will always value the staff members at FCA. During my four years in high school, I developed so many relationships that are still in my life today. They were such influential figures to me as a teenager, and now as a young adult, they are great friends to me. I felt comfortable enough to discuss different challenges I was facing, and I expected to receive wisdom in return—which I always did. Even now, I know that I can go to them with anything and they will help me in the blink of an eye. The love, encouragement, and support that I had so graciously bestowed upon me while at FCA was very beneficial in my life. The Lord used so many staff members to show me what a young, Christ-like lady should look like. For my entire high school career, I was prayed for and invested in. Even though I did not live on campus, they still took the time to invest in students like myself. I can’t properly express my gratitude to them for being some of the most intentional and genuine people I’ve ever met.

The one thing that I love and value the most about FCA is their commitment to giving students a solid foundation built on Biblical principles. It is evident that the Lord’s teachings are interwoven in the lessons taught in the classroom. Each year, I took a different academic Mission trips were a big part of my high class that was built around the teachings and school experience. FCA is so unique in that it principles related to Christ. gives students the opportunity to participate in mission trips to Mexico, New York, Texas, and Two of my favorite courses were Christian Wales. For three consecutive years, I served on Family Living and Christian Worldview, both mission teams to Fort Worth, Texas and Haver- of which I took during my senior year. The infordwest, Wales. Most young people are not formation that I learned in those classes I still given the opportunity to serve on a mission apply to my life today. Defending my faith and team until college. Because I had that opportu- recognizing healthy, Christ-centered relationnity while in high school, it helped me build my ships were two things that I had to deal with foundation on Christ and have a heart for the while in college, and FCA helped me with both lost during my teenage years. of those.

FCA is not like any other place I’ve ever experienced. I’ve seen so many people be changed for the better, myself being one of them. The love that I have for FCA has only grown as the years have gone by. Even though my time as a student has come and gone, I am still a part of FCA through frequent visits, and most importantly, through prayer. The Lord has tremendously blessed this ministry and the young people who come into FCA’s care, and I am confident that His faithfulness will be evident in the years to come. They say that French Camp Academy is “One Fine Place.” Well, they say that because it’s true. A place as special as this can only come straight from the Lord, which in my books, makes FCA one fine place. ◆ *Michaela went on to graduate from Mississippi College with a major in communications. She now works for a marketing firm in Columbus, MS and also is a freelance wedding photographer.

Then our sons in their youth will be like well-nurtured plants, and our daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace. —Psalm 144:12 NON-DISCRIMINATORY POLICY
