Student Spotlight:  
Freshman, Malachi West, Experiences Missions in Haiti
Each year Dominion Christian takes students on a state-side or international missions trip. We call this group DoMissions.These trips encourage students to think "missionally" about their role in sharing the Gospel, the love of Christ, and compassion for the needy and the lost.

However, some students take things into their own hands and just go! This is one such story ... 

(from a Mom's perspective)

Malachi West had just completed 8th grade this past summer. He typically attends Camp Glisson each summer. However, this past Spring he caught wind of the fact that our church, Kennesaw United Methodist, was planning a mission trip to Haiti. Malachi asked us if he could go to Haiti instead of Glisson this summer.

Malachi, being a determined young man and very much a self-starter, took it upon himself to explore the possibility of going on the trip. He attended the early planning meetings, and was (perhaps a bit naively) optimistic about traveling to Haiti with mom and or dad along. At some point, it became clear that neither mom nor dad would be able to go along; however, Malachi was faithful. He would go with the small team from KUMC without either of his parents. This would mean that Malachi would be the only non-adult on the trip. (To me this is important, because when asked, he said that he truly felt led to go on this trip, at this time in his life. He would follow God's will on this. How as a parent, regardless of how protective and sheltering you may be, can you discourage a young Christian in this situation? At some point you must practice what you preach, especially with your children, right?)

In the end, Malachi went to Port-au-Prince and many other areas within Haiti. I am told that he represented himself (and Dominion Christian for that matter as you can see him in the photo below wearing his DCHS cross country shirt) very well.

Support the DCS Rewards Programs
Parents, we have added another simple way for Dominion to earn money through a new rewards program. The Amazon Smile program will donate .5% on eligible purchases to Dominion Christian Schools for those who participate in the program. To get started, you must shop through their Amazon Smiles site: instead of the traditional Amazon site.  Once on this site, search for "Dominion Christian Schools, Inc" Marietta, GA and choose our school as the beneficiary. You will then shop as usual (all products/prices are the same as the regular amazon site). If everyone participates, the .5% will add up to a respectable donation for Dominion. Last year you all helped our school raised approximately $1000 from box tops, coke rewards, and labels for education. Thank you so much for your continued participation in all of these programs!
