More God's Bible School pictures from our trip

Here are some more pictures of our time at God's Bible School.  The first picture shows the Chapel/Classroom/Boys' Dorm building on the left, the Girls' Dorm in the very back, and the Administration Building on the right.

 Another view of the Admin Building, and to the right is the library.
 The Music Building which is across the street from the chapel.  Secured parking is behind this building.
 President Michael Avery, a wonderful man of God with a heart for the students.  Because he is a detail-noticing man, and he knew Jeffrey was also, he added to Jeffrey's work duties to find any details that needed to be fixed on campus:  light bulbs to replace, binds that didn't work, loose screws, black marks on floors, etc.  Jeffrey took it seriously and worked hard.  The whole campus really looked nice!  All the students work together to make the campus wonderful.
 Inside the empty chapel.  This was taken on our tour of campus.  During the camp services, it was very full of up to 900 people.
 We hadn't seen the Richard Owens family since their kids were small.  They are from New York, but daughter Rachel is in school at GBS.
 Jeffrey with a few of his friends: Brandon, Rachel, and Amit.  Amit took us out to eat on Saturday.
 We have been cyber friends with Nikita, from Grand Cayman, for probably five years.  It was a blessing to finally meet her in person!  She has been an "adopted" daughter through video chat!  She has two more years to go at GBS.  She gave Emily and me a tour of the Girls' Dorm.
 I was visiting with Martha Glick, while Rowen and Jeffrey talked to Dr. Dan Glick.  Dr. Glick is a friend, adviser, mentor, professor, and pastor to Jeffrey.  We appreciate his investment in Jeffrey's life.  We first met the Glicks at McPherson Holiness Camp in 2002.
 Another picture with Seth and Alesia, including some Albertsons.  Seth is one of our "adopted" sons, and also our daughter-in-law, Brenda's brother.  Since we were so close to Kentucky, where they live, we asked them to meet us for a meal.  They were willing to drive two hours to get to see us!
 Here is the only picture we took of our nephew, Adam.  He was supervising Aubrey's play.
 This is the dining hall, which had some stuff sitting around for the graduation receptions that were going to take place there.  Between our nieces' homes and the friends we ate out with, we only ate in the dining hall once.
The picture below is cropped from a choir picture, just to show a couple of Jeffrey's friends.  The left arrow points to Andrew Blankenship, Jeffrey's roommate this past year.  The right arrow points to Jeffrey Paulus, a good friend who plans to room with Andrew and Jeffrey next year.  It might get confusing with two Jeffreys in the room, but they are good friends and are all serious about serving the Lord.
