PIU Faculty-Staff End of the Year Luncheon

As we get toward the end of another school year there are a few other things, besides getting ready for our Voices of Micronesia Tour, going on at Pacific Islands University. One of our fun traditions is the end of year luncheon. The purpose of the luncheon was to celebrate another successful year, thank our faculty and staff for their hard work and say good bye to those who will be moving on to another ministry after the end of the semester. The luncheon this year was held at the Onward Agana Hotel buffet - Great tempura! We have such a great group of people working for us at PIU, who view what they are doing here as a ministry and calling. We are blessed every day by our PIU family! Here are a few pictures of the festivities.

"Grandpa Steve" Bradley comes out to teach at PIU every spring semester. We are so thankful for what he brings to our campus each time he comes. Anne Stinnette is presenting him with a "going-away, but come back again next year" gift. 

Ned, Marisol, Joel and Amelia Farnsworth have been serving at PIU the last three school years as Liebenzell USA missionaries. After a year furlough in the US they will return to Ecuador to work with the church there. We will miss them. 

Joyce, Jen Rydzik (Remedial English Teachers) and Daisy Murdock (Asst. Dean of Women) pose in front of their desks.

Steve Bradley (Bible Faculty) and Eric Sorenson (Seminary Dean) smile for our new camera.

Hi Dave, thanks for the tribute to us in your blog. However, we would like to point out that we have been here at PIU for FOUR years, not three. Where has the time gone?

Sorry Ned. Yes the time does go so fast. We are going to miss you guys.
