The fall semester is now underway with some 160 new ATS students combined at our Rockland and Manhattan campuses. It is so encouraging to see that, even in this time of financial turmoil in our country, there are still men and woman, called of God, who are willing to step out in faith to pursue their mission. I can think of two pastors from Asia who are studying here, their families back home, but still willing to pursue the call.
I asked one of them, "Do you miss your family?"
"Of course," he replied, "always. Hopefully they can come, but we must pursue the call."
THE CALL - still being answered at ATS in 2009!
