y nineteen-year-old son is totally blind. For that reason, he has to depend on someone to guide him around the neighborhood, to school, in church, through the malls or when he goes out with friends. As always, the entire family make sure that the paths he treads on are safe and as much as possible, convenient. When he was in grade school, my husband, my older son, and I would take turns guiding him to school. We still do. I vividly remember those days when the roads turned slippery after a heavy downpour and I would carefully guide him through the muddy paths. His hand firmly locked in mine, my son would follow my leading as we marched single file through the sodden ground. Yet, no matter how much I tried to ensure a safe pathway for him, he still had the nerve to grumble about anything that came to his mind. Oh, he found so many things to complain about. He murmured about my gripping his hand too tightly and how much it hurt. He whined about the distance from our home to the campus, about the rocks he stumbled on. (At that time, we didnâ€™t have a car yet and everyone in the family had to walk half a kilometer to school.) At times, he would get so stubborn. He would let go of my guiding hand and would walk on his own as though he could see what lay ahead In moments like that, he would slip and fall. Once, I let him walk on without my guiding hand. Sure enough. Just as I expected, he struck his toes against some rocks and fell. I wanted him to realize that with my guiding hand, he is safe and secure. Without it, he is definitely lost.
Just like us as children of a caring and loving Father in heaven. We are totally blind about what lies ahead. Not only that. We are stubborn and careless about heeding God’s commands. Day by day, we walk through dangerous highways of evil. We do need a sure guide to see us through. God in His great love for us reveals to us through His Word and through the Spirit of Prophecy the safe paths of righteousness so we don’t have to fall as we travel on the highways of life. God’s Word shows us the dangers of false teachings and clearly outlines the way to a happy and meaningful life. As the psalmist said in Psalm 119:105, “Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path.” God in His wisdom gives us the freedom to test our doubts in His leading and lets us go on our own way. He allows us to stumble and get hurt so we can clearly see that it is only through Him that we are assured of a safe and secure journey. Fanny Crosby, blind American hymn writer and poetess, gives an apt description of God as our constant guide and companion when she penned these lines of a hymn: All the way my Savior leads me; What have I to ask beside? Can I doubt His tender mercy, Who through life has been my Guide? Heav’nly peace, divinest comfort, Here by faith in Him to dwell! For I know, whate’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well, For I know, whate’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well.
God’s Words are our eyes in this sin-sick world. The Bible is the light that shows us the way ahead. It reveals the entangling roots of false values and philosophies. Let us always seek God’s words so we may be able to see our way clear enough to stay on the right path. Let us anchor our faith in God that we may have the courage to walk on with confidence.
used to work in the garden of Elder James in Mountain View College so I could buy my personal needs. But due to financial restraints I could not continue my study for the next semester. I decided to go back home so I could help my father.
One time a meeting was held in the academy near our place. I planned to attend it. I was surprised that Elder James was there, and he counseled me to go back to MVC. I went home and gathered my few belongings and told my parents about my plan to go back to college. It was late in the afternoon that I decided to go to the terminal. When I arrived there, no single bus was available to transport us. With me were teachers who wanted to attend a seminar. At last a baby bus arrived and we all climbed in. The time was already past eight oâ€™clock when we left. After thirty minutes into the trip, the two headlights of the bus were blasted off and there was total darkness in the road. The conductor of the bus suggested that we would just continue with the use of a FLASHLIGHT. But 3 minutes after, the driver missed the road and all of the sudden our bus ran into the rice paddies. All of us were scared, thinking that somebody might be hurt. With all my adrenalin running in my body, I climbed on top of the bus through the window, and seared my luggage under water. I was greatly dismayed to find my box of blankets and other things dripping with foul-smelling water from the ditch. I dragged my luggage toward the dry area, and my mind was wondering whether to proceed or go back home. But I fought my discouragement, and finally decided to proceed to MVC. We cannot rely on our own light to guide our own dark path. Our lives could be in danger and miserable and we can be easily derailed if Jesus is not our guiding light. Jesus is the light and a lamp unto our path and He will always lighten our dark life.
SULADS’ Corner: “Proud To Be A Lumad” By Sulad Czarby Shane Quijardo. SULADS High School
was appointed to be one of the Senior High School teachers. I was assigned to teach the subject of Psychology. In a class discussion, my students made mention that they were bullied in the school they had previously attended because they were natives or “Lumads”. Some students had gotten into trouble because of the hurtful and demeaning words thrown at them by their schoolmates who are not from the indigenous people’s background. There was a grievous hurt in them so being transferred at SULADS High School was a real haven for them. I noticed that most of my students had a really low self-esteem. In our discussion about the subject of Psychology I asked them some questions of a personal nature to evaluate some degree of selfassessment. I asked them, “Are your grades here at SULADS High School better?” Most of them aired out that 75% of their grades here are acceptable and good enough for them because they are dumb anyway. Their answers were really alarming to me. I decided to tell them a little of my background, my past experiences when I was also bullied in high school. I got really low grades and was involved in some abusive acts with some friends. I told them that if we allow this bullying to rule over us and look at ourselves as unwanted it would be difficult for us to amount to anything. Our attitude would surely destroy our future. We would surely damage the beautiful future God has designed for us. They needed to know and accept that God values everybody equally and no one is greater or lesser at the foot of the cross. All of us are God’s children and God does not look at us the same way our peers look at us. God looks at us with love and care because we are His precious children. We have to be sure that we become what God wants us to be. We are to cope positively with all the rubbish thrown at us. We are to learn it as we study the life of Jesus. The positive thoughts I presented to my students comforted them. I then introduced the theory of Howard Gardner about Multiple Intelligence and I told them we are all smart, but this depends on how we are measured. I told them they are all smart because they are God’s creation and are all special. To further emphasize the theory, I organized a festival of talents for all Grade II students which was held on July 25, 2017 on the school grounds. All Grade II students shared their talents
and happily showcased these talents, not for themselves, but to show their gratitude for God’s gift to them.
SULADS’ Corner: “Accident = Extension” By Sulad Jedd Calayco. SULADS High School
e may think sometimes that the bad things that happen to us are consequences of our evil actions. Simply we are cursed if bad things fall on us. I don’t believe in this view. What I believe is what is written in the Bible, that everything happens for a reason under the heavens. In all things I shall give thanks and rejoice. This is quite hard and unreasonable for our suffering but this is what the Bible said is true. I just met an accident that turned to be that thing that had led me to another calling and another blessing and I was just greatly blessed. May 12, 2017. It was the day when I was injured in a motorcycle accident. At first, I thought that it was only bruises or just small wounds. It was about 3:00 pm at Butong, Quezon, Bukidnon. I awakened to see people surrounding me. They called rescuers and later they came. Sir Simi was worried and Ma’am Jie but for me I was so relaxed while we were riding the rescue vehicle going to Valencia Sanitarium. It was Friday when we reached Sanitarium at around 5 o’clock, and we knew that after my X-ray the result would be by Monday or either the next day. But I prayed Lord please give us the result today. Lo and behold, just a minute after my X-ray the result was there. So when I got out from the hospital we decided that we would go to “hilot” to see if he could adjust the twist in my elbow at about 7 cm. so I prayed, “Lord help me, use me once again.” And without delay, God answered my plea; I was well again that fast. During my healing I was reminded of the things I did that were not pleasing to Him. The accident was a beautiful reminder of who and what I was at that time. And because of that accident I was called again to serve him. I believed that God wanted to use me for many more years. My accident was not the end of my life but rather a fresh new start of a Godly life he wanted me to live until He shall come the second time. My life is just borrowed. It is now an extension and I shall keep it only for the Glory of my maker and King!

Whatâ€™s In Your Closet? Susanne Scheppmann If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don't fuss about what's on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Matthew 6:25 MSG
I discovered a lot about myself during a recent cleaning of my clothes closet. Blue stood out as my favorite color. How could I own so many blue tops? I realized that somewhere in the recesses of my mind, I hold the fantasy I am going to fit into those size 10 jeans again. One glance at the floor confirmed my husband's past comment, "You might be a shoe-o-holic." Spring-cleaning my closet felt like a safari of sorts. I separated, bagged, and hauled out many worn, useless, too small, and even hardly worn items. I sat down exhausted after finishing my mission. Then I asked myself, Why do I own so many clothes that a full walk-in closet bursts at the seams? Two answers settled in my mind -- God's blessings and my own self-indulgence. Starting today, I will attempt to put less value on my clothing and more significance on what I wear on the inside. The apostle Paul said, "Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ" (Romans 13:14). In addition, I will purchase my clothes with more thought. Do I need it? Will I really wear it? How often? If I buy a new item, I will remove one old item when I hang the new one in my closet. I also decided that enduring styles, not fads, will populate my wardrobe. Now, I do love shoes, but I need to be a good steward of my money. Paul advises us on our footwear, "For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News" (Ephesians 6:15 NLT). Thankfully, Paul is not inferring I shouldn't wear stylish shoes, only that I take into consideration what their true importance is in life. I will determine a shoe budget and stick to it. If it's not in my budget, I will resist the urge to buy... even if they are cheap and adorable. Next year, my cleaning shouldn't be such a tiring experience. I hope my closet will reveal that I've been a better steward with my money. Moreover, I hope I will look back and see that I better clothed myself with Jesus from the inside out. Dear Lord, remind me of what is truly important in the big scheme of things. Help me to be a wise steward of my money when I shop for clothes. Each morning remind me to clothe myself with humility and love, so that others see You. In Jesus' name. Amen. Application Steps Glance through your closet and make notes on what it reveals about your personality and resources. Mark a date on your calendar to give your clothes closet a thorough cleaning. Then when the day arrives, sort into piles: items to keep, to donate, and to be discarded. (as seen in God's Purpose For Every Woman)
Job Interviews Before my son could start going on job interviews, he needed to dress the part. That, he decided, required a $500 suit. "What!?" I answered, gagging at the price tag. "I've bought cars for $500!" "That's why I want the $500 suit," he said. "So I don't have to drive $500 cars." (from Cybersalt Digest)
Message Puzzle Sally was puzzled recently by the odd messages she kept getting on her voice mail. Day after day all she'd hear, from friends, family, and customers alike would be their message and then they'd ALL say, "BEEP." We were talking about something else at the moment but I had her check her voice mail message anyway to see if there was a clue. She discovered the solution to the BEEP riddle when she dialed her own phone number. Her message said, "I'm not available right now, so please leave a beep after the message." (from GCFL)
Checking IN A minister passing through his church in the middle of the day, Decided to pause by the altar and see who had come to pray. Just then the back door opened, a man came down the aisle, The minister frowned as he saw the man hadn't shaved in a while. His shirt was kinda shabby and his coat was worn and frayed. The man knelt, he bowed his head, then rose and walked away. In the days that followed, each noon time -- came this chap, Each time he knelt just for a moment, a lunch pail in his lap. Well, the minister's suspicions grew, with robbery a main fear, He decided to stop the man and ask him, "What are you doing here?"
The old man said, he worked down the road - Lunch was half an hour. Lunchtime was his prayer time, for finding faith, strength and power. "I stay only moments, see, the factory is so far away; As I kneel here talking to the Lord, this is kinda what I say: "I just came again to tell you Lord, how happy I have been, Since we found each other's friendship and you took away my sin. Don't know much of how to pray, but I think about you every day. So, Jesus, this is Jim - just checking in." The minister feeling foolish, told Jim that was fine. He told the man he was welcome to come and pray anytime. "Time to go", Jim smiled, and said "thanks" as he hurried to the door. The minister knelt at the altar, he'd never done that before. His cold heart melted, warmed with love, and met with Jesus there. As the tears flowed, in his heart, he repeated old Jim's prayer: "I just came again to tell you Lord, how happy I have been, Since we found each other's friendship and you took away my sin. Don't know much of how to pray, but I think about you every day. So, Jesus, This is me - just checking in." Past noon one day, the minister noticed that old Jim had not come. As more days passed with no sign of Jim, he began to worry some. At the factory, he asked about him, learning he was ill. The hospital staff was worried, but Jim had given them a thrill. The week that Jim was with them, he brought changes in the ward. His smiles, a joy contagious - changed people, were his reward. The head nurse couldn't understand why Jim was so glad, When no flowers, calls or cards came, not a visitor he had. The minister stayed by Jim's bed, he voiced the nurse's concern. No friends came to show they cared, he had nowhere to turn. Looking surprised, old Jim spoke up and with a winsome smile "The nurse is wrong, she couldn't know, that in here all the while,
Every day at noon - He's here, a dear friend of mine, you see, He sits right down, takes my hand, leans over and says to me: "I JUST CAME AGAIN TO TELL YOU, JIM, HOW HAPPY I HAVE BEEN, SINCE WE FOUND THIS WONDERFUL FRIENDSHIP, AND I TOOK AWAY YOUR SIN. I ALWAYS LOVE TO HEAR YOU PRAY, AND I THINK ABOUT YOU EVERY DAY, AND SO JIM, THIS IS JESUS ... CHECKING IN." (from Still Waters Ministry)
The Pig A man was driving down the road in the country. He looked over and saw a baby pig in the field. He stopped and picked up the pig. He was driving around town with the pig in the car and a cop sees him and pulls him over. Cop says, "Hey! What are you doing with that pig in the car?" The driver says, "Well, I just found the pig beside the road in the field." The cop says, "I want you to take that pig to the zoo!" The driver agrees he will take the pig to the zoo. So the next day the cop sees the guy driving around again and pulls him over. "What are you doing? I thought I told you to take that pig to the zoo!" "Well, I did take the pig to the zoo. We had such a good time we are going to the ball game now." (from ArcaMax Jokes)
The Other Side A hiker stopped at the bank of a fast-flowing river. Spying a simple fellow standing on the opposite bank, he yelled to him, "How do I get to the other side?" The simpleton scratched his head. He looked up the river. He looked down the river. Then he yelled back to the hiker, "You're already ON the other side!" (from GCFL)
Surat Thani Monkeys
urat Thani (often shortened to Surat, and formerly named Chaiya Province), is the largest of the southern provinces (changwat) of Thailand, on the western shore of the Gulf of Thailand. Surat Thani means "city of good people", a title given to the city by King of Thailand Vajiravudh (Rama VI). Surat Thani’s tourist attractions include a visit to the Monkey Training College. The tourism slogan of Thailand is “AMAZING THAILAND”. This week let me share with you one unique experience that amazed me. As I was driving on my way to Phuket, Thailand, I saw a pick-up truck filled with coconuts and several monkeys. When I asked the locals, I was informed that these monkeys helped the farmers in harvesting coconuts. Mr. Somsak Saekaeo believes that monkeys could be trained for the full use of their capabilities and established a monkey training school. With a tuition fee inclusive of food and accommodation, the “students” are mostly local pig-tailed monkeys. The 3-6 month classes are divided into beginner, intermediate and advance levels where graduate monkeys will only pick ripened coconuts from the tree. Monkey Training College
In Surat Thani, the Monkey Training College in Kanchanadit, which was founded by Krue Somporn, is a place the monkeys learn to harvest coconuts. For a small fee, visitors can watch a presentation of the monkey training. The locals understand the usefulness of having monkeys pick coconuts. The monkeys are adept at the task and gather a greater number of coconuts per day compared to humans. A competent monkey can pick up to 1000 coconuts a day while a person can gather little more than 100 at best.
Krue Somporn Saekow, following the advice of a Buddhist monk, set out to develop a training method. In 1957, at the age of 17, Somporn Saekow began developing techniques designed to teach primates through love and compassion. Over the next forty-five years, Krue Somporn founded a school for monkeys. Together with Khai Nui, his favorite monkey, they captured the hearts of the Thai people. From 1957 until his death in 2002, Krue Somporn personally trained local monkeys in the art of coconut harvesting. Khai Nui, who appeared in several television commercials, became even more popular than his owner and was bestowed the honor of carrying the Surat Thani flag at the Thai National Games in 1993. Following the death of Krue Somporn, his family continued the program which was his life’s passion. Local coconut farmers bring their monkeys (pig tailed macaque to be exact) to Krue Somporn’s school where they are “in school” for 3 to 5 months of intensive instruction. The monkeys are given names and the trainers develop a close bond with the monkeys through the use of kind words and positive emotion, which they believe the primates have an ability to sense and understand. The trainers even refer to themselves as the monkeys' fathers and call their trainees “luuk,” meaning their children. Instruction begins with simple tasks such as spinning a coconut on its stem and learning to bite through it to release the fruit. Gradually, the monkeys learn to distinguish ripe from unripe fruit, then they are taught how to retrieve fallen coconuts, and load coconuts onto a truck. While there are no exams, the school does not guarantee how many coconuts a day a monkey will ultimately be able to pick. The monkeys are trained patiently until their skills are developed. Classes at Monkey Training College run from 7 in the morning to 5 in the afternoon, seven days a week. Visitors can watch the real monkey training in the classroom/coconut field throughout the day. Demonstrations for visitors are given upon request. There is no fixed show time. When you arrive you can ask the trainers for a demonstration and they will arrange one for you right away. The fee depends on the size of your group. If you are alone the fee is 300 Baht. During these shows, monkeys perform their coconut picking techniques and show off their special talents, such as performing summersaults. The school is located at 24 Moo 4, Tambon Thungkong, Kanchanadit, Surat Thani and can be contacted at 077/227351.

Letter From The MVC President Dear Joy, Greetings! Hope everything is going fine there with you. We miss you last MVC retreat. I understand you were here in the Philippines. I'm writing you regarding the proposed 65th homecoming this July 3-8, 2018. The Adcom met and we decided to (reschedule this) until next year, 2019 for the following reasons: 1. We have 3 major events on campus this 2018 and there will be thousands of people attending. The preparation will be tremendous considering the number of delegates. 2. The Sulads homecoming is another major event. If we will have the 65th anniversary right after the Sulads, we wouldn't have enough (time to prepare) considering the number of guest houses we have on campus. 3. We would suspect only few (alumni members) will be able to attend especially among the Nurse Alumni group because they will be coming here on 2019. With these reasons we thought of just combining this 66th anniversary with the 50th anniversary of the School of Nursing on July 15-19, 2019. This will be more enjoyable I suppose because there will be more attendees. Kindly disseminate this information to our Alumni members worldwide. Hope they will understand our situation here on campus. Actually, the Sabbath School Congress division wide will also be on 2019, perhaps on the month of April. Kindly extend our warmest regards to all alumni. God bless your ministry. Best regards, Gladden
