|Mile High Academy signs contract on new school facility » There is a distinct possibility that when school starts next year, Mile High Academy will be located on a new campus. The MHA administration team and RMC Trust Services team have signed a contract on the Denver Christian Schools Highland Ranch facility at the junction of C470 and University Blvd. They are now in a 30-day due diligence period during which inspections and other pre-sale processes occur. If all goes as planned, the 16-acre facility will become the new home of Mile High Academy.
The school campus is a beautiful facility with room for more than 500 students. There is a spacious gymnasium and well-maintained soccer and baseball fields with stadium seating. Its location along the C470 loop affords high visibility to daily commuters, and its proximity on the south side of the Denver metroplex makes it ideal for the growing communities of Highlands Ranch, Littleton, Parker, and Castle Rock.
"There have been discussions about moving our campus for more than 14 years," Says Toakase Vunileva, Mile High principal. "We should be able to draw students that we could not easily reach in our existing location, and with the ample space, there's plenty of room to grow. It's really more than we could have ever dreamed or hoped for!"
Parker Adventist Hospital has made a generous offer to purchase the existing property of Mile High Academy. In fact, they have offered to pay the exact amount of the purchase price for the new facility.
"There's really no way this would be happening without the generosity of the hospital system," says Vunileva. "We are so thankful for their strong vision for Adventist education!"
Please join us in praying for wisdom as we wait for the closing date to approach.

Pastor appreciation month » Every October, pastors around the country are reminded how much they are appreciated by their congregations. We received this nice report from Lana Anderson of Cheyenne, Wyoming. The following is just one example of the many kudos and words of gratitude that are shared during Pastor Appreciation Month around the Rocky Mountain Conference.
On Sabbath, October 18, 2014, head elder Lee Steele surprised pastor Don Barnt and wife, April, with a token of love and appreciation from the Cheyenne congregation for all their faithful and enthusiastic work. The LEMCA school children also presented the Barnts with a very large, beautiful card expressing their appreciation for all they do for the church school.
