Last Sabbath, on December 7, we had International Sabbath. Many of Campion’s students and church families participated. The program started off with a lot of students carrying flags, and there were over 40 flags. Each student carrying a flag said a greeting in a different language. Some students wore their country’s clothes. “It was cool seeing different clothes represented by different countries, and I also liked the way the Japanese girl’s clothes looked,” said Audra Bennett, freshman.
The praise team sang a few Christmas songs in eight different languages. “International Sabbath was really fun. I really enjoyed learning new languages. It was hard learning new languages and I think the hardest was Swedish or French,” commented Kaddy Koroma, senior.
A few international students did a children’s story. The children learned to say “Jesus loves you” in different languages. Other international students read Bible verses in different languages. “I’m really interested in languages, and I like studying languages, so I really appreciated it. It was really cool to see all of the different languages being sung and read in,” explained Samantha Hodges, junior. We learned about different countries and had an amazing Sabbath.
