The Summit Ridge Retirement Village (SRRV) residents have long been strong supporters of Parkview Adventist Academy in Oklahoma City, both financially and through our earnest prayers.
Recently the SRRV residents were given the opportunity to choose an academy student to pray for by name. The students also took names of residents to pray for them. Many residents took advantage of this opportunity for outreach to our young people.
Just before Christmas break, Annette Park, Parkview Adventist Academy Principal, along with her staff, arranged for a joyous “Meet and Greet” with an agape feast, musical numbers by the students, exchange of gifts between the “oldsters” and the “youngsters,” and games to play together at the end. Most of the SRRV residents got to meet the student they were matched with, like Greg and George (right). We all had a good time! We look forward to keeping in touch with “our” students and having an opportunity to mingle with them again.
