In 1 Samuel 7, Israel experiences revival under the leadership of Samuel.  The nation repented of their sins and began to seek God.  During this time, the Philistines came to battle the Israelites.  God sent them supernatural help, and the Israelites defeated the Philistines.  To commemorate the divine victory, "Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen.  He named it Ebenezer, saying Thus far the Lord has helped us." 1 Samuel 7:12  Ebenezer means "stone of help." Our Ebenezer Team in conjunction with our Bridge Builders help us build our new school, and our school will be a stone of remembrance. It will mark the spot where God fulfilled His promise and helped us build His school!

Will Allen Dromgoole

An old man, going a lone highway, 

Came at the evening, cold and gray

To a chasm vast and deep and wide

Through which was flowing a swollen tide.

The old man crossed in the twilight dim; 

The rapids held no fears for him.

But he turned when safe on the farther side 

And built a bridge to span the tide. 

“Old man,” cried a fellow pilgrim near, 

“You are wasting your time in building here. 

Your journey will end with the closing day:

You never again will pass this way. 

You’ve crossed the chasm deep and wide;

Why build you this bridge at eventide?” 

The builder lifted his old gray head.

“Good friend, in the path I have come,” he said, 

“There follows after me today

A youth whose feet must pass this way. 

This stream, which has been as naught to me,

To that fair youth may a pitfall be. 

He, too, must cross in the twilight dim-

 Good friend, I am building this bridge for him.”
