Our past plays an important role in shaping who we become.
This past week at AFE, we have reflected and remembered how the project began over 10 years ago.
God has done incredible things over the years while shaping AFE as well as those who are a part of the project; one of these miracles is the gift of multiple buildings to have classes. However, instead of having classes like normal inside the buildings this week, classes were held outside, under the trees in the field just outside the school. Students sat on large rocks or tires with their pencils and notebooks balanced on their laps. Teachers donned ball caps and spent all day out in the sun to continue educating but also to help students remember.
It was quite a spectacle to see every grade huddled up together, receiving their science, math, Spanish, and history lessons out of the “comfort” of the classroom. Everyone remembered what it was like to have classes years ago before there were desks and chairs.
It is so incredible to see how far AFE has come since those first classes given in the trash dump!
