There are two times during the school year that I find myself lost on my own campus. One of them is Graduation, with all of the families and hundreds of visitors excited for the close of another school year. The other is International Supper, with all of our guests from the towns surrounding Fountainview. They come in droves to taste the wonderful, yet still healthful, ethnic food our student body prepares. This year we had 15 countries represented, from India to Finland to the Bahamas. Every group worked extremely hard on their country’s booth decorations and food, and I was so full by the end I felt like an exercise ball rolling back to my dorm. After enjoying the food, we were blessed by a performance of “I Still Call Australia Home” by our resident Australians, Sienna and Elouise. We then heard stories from Zambia, the Dominican Republic, and the Czech Republic. The evening finished with musical selections by the Fountainview Academy orchestra and singers.
International Supper is always such a great bonding experience, and I love the opportunity to get to know my fellow students and our community a little bit better. I’m so grateful that God created so many different ethnicities to bring diversity to our world, aren’t you?
