The International Office has recently announced the resignation of Gord and Denise Erickson from their position as "Hostel Parents" in Younde, Cameroon. The Ericksons have served for three years in this position. In addition to the love and guidance they have provided for missionary children, Gord has also overseen the construction of the new hostel house for students and the basement apartment for NAB teachers. We so appreciate this family and the lasting contribution they have made into many students' lives.

Philippines Disaster Relief Tony Dunaway recently returned from Tacloban, Philippines where he served with a disaster response team led by Pastor Tony Bueno and Mayette Ativo-Bueno, Director of the Bicol Center for Christian Leadership (BCCL).
