Comment on A New Endowment Program for Adventist Education by Monse Salazar.
The conferences need to also monitor closely what our younger children are exposed to at our schools. Not all teachers adhere to the distinctive belief. My 12 years grandaughter is attending our Adventist Academy for the first time. She is in 7th grade. For there Spiritual retreat the Oct 1st thru 5th the 7th -10th grade classes are being taken to a a Non-Adventist camp where a Non-Adventist youth pastor will be leading. This youth pastor’s mentor is also Rick Warren.
When I spoke with the Academy Principal and told here we were not to do this according to Counsel from the Spirit of Prophecy because of the spiritualist dangers, she was totally oblivious. I spoke with my grandaughter and she will not be attending this was her own decision. My grandaughter at 12 years of age has more common sense than her teachers.
I have also called our local conference and spoken to our Conference School superintendent. They have told me they will look into this.
