In October 2010, our school was given a great opportunity to reach out to a Lebanese Muslim school in Paraguay.  Our high school students produced a video, wrote a song, created a friendship banner, and sent other items to the students in Paraguay.  They choose the theme "Friendship begins with a hello." In response our students received letters, banners and other gifts of friendship.  In a time where there is much tension between the Christian and Muslim communities it was refreshing and encouraging to see the excitement of our students when presented with this opportunity.

On Wednesday, November 10th, 2010, CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network) News Channel Midday aired the following story about Strong Wall Academy high school students and their new friendship with the Lebanese School in Paraguay. You can view the news clip below.  Please continue to pray for this new friendship that is developing.  It is our prayer that God will use this growing relationship to draw all people to Him.

In September, the story of a Florida preacher who wanted to burn Korans to demonstrate his anger and frustration with radical Islam made the national news. In response, one man has come up with a different approach to reach Muslims with the love of God. Dr. Ben Mathes, president of Rivers of the World Ministries has brought Muslim students from South America and Christian students from Georgia together in a partnership that's building bridges and changing young lives.
