 The night was full of excitement as we watched Joshua C, a fellow student, experience the joy of graduation. It was no easy task, but it was well worth it; he graduated with a GPA of 3.4! Smiles filled the room as we recapped some of the hilarious highlights of his journey at ABM Ministries. Now, as he moves on to a new chapter in life, facing even greater challenges, we pray that he will follow God and make the right choices.

 Mr. Reed has been teaching me to embrace the pain when I'm working out and also in all other situations in my life. When we are working out and I'm hurting, he always tells me that pain is my body telling me to give up. Without pain, I wouldn't have lost the 77 pounds that I burned off this past year at ABM. He tells me that when I feel like I can't do any more, to do one more and push my body then do another after that. I thank God every day for bringing me here and putting me in the situation that I'm in.  I weighed 310 pounds when I first got here and if I hadn't been sent here, I would probably be pushing close to 400. Right now I'm working on getting my pain tolerance up. Mr.

 "Pepperoni or sausage?" That is the question. When it comes to pizza, everyone has their favorite toppings. Recently at ABM, we had the opportunity to create our own pizza. Several meats and vegetables were laid out at each table for students to top their pizzas with. After being topped they were placed in the oven to bake. However, there was one requirement; to identify each student's pizza, their initials had to be placed somewhere on the pizza. It was funny to see the creative ways that was accomplished - by tearing pepperoni slices or arranging sausages and other things like that.

 At ABM Ministries, many of the students' favorite food are nachos. Recently, with the inspiration of the food channel and Mrs. Carmen's culinary skills, we put a delicious twist on that classic meal; Philly cheese steak nachos. The cafeteria went ablaze with exclamations of "Wow!" and "This is fantastic!" as students took their first bite. We are very lucky to have ladies that can cook us such fantastic meals.

 Over the course of the last few months, I have been learning about making a plan during church on Sunday. Recently, we discovered two new, important elements: a positive mental attitude and keeping the right company.

 For the past couple of weeks, we have been building a new mudroom for our work clothes and outside clothes. As of August 18th, we put the frame up for the first floor and are almost done framing the floor for the second. It has been very hot outside; by the time we get started on the building each day, I am usually dripping with sweat. With hard work we will finish it before too long and be able to begin to use it for storing our work clothes, P.E. clothes and outdoor shoes.

Hot Wings
Monday, July 18th, 2011

 “5!. . . 4! . . . 3! . . . 2! . . . 1! . . .”; The chant was unanimous throughout the cafeteria as students and staff participated in ABM’s first ever hot-wing eating contest.  The challenge: to eat 12 blazin’ hot wings in only 6 minutes. With screaming taste buds and tearing eyes, the heat was on.  In the end, only one student managed to complete the challenge.

 We recently watched "Unfiltered: The Rebel Jesus" for our Wednesday night Bible Study.  In it, we learned that in Christ's day he was a rebel; his teachings didn't always match up with the people of his day.  When picking his twelve disciples, for example, many people would have picked the richest, strongest, and smartest. However, Jesus chose an odd group; several poor fishermen and a hated tax collector among them.  What we come to realize is that he didn't choose his disciples for their earthly stature, but rather for their unwavering faith. Righteousness in God's eyes has nothing to do with physical qualities; it has to do with our willingness to serve Him.

  Recently, for our Wednesday night bible study, we watched a video entitled "Never Runners". In it was a comedic skit of an organization that fights against running.

Holy Watermellon

  Almost everyone enjoys the sweet, cool, juicy taste of watermelon on a hot summer day.  At ABM, however, we took that to the next level with a watermelon eating contest.  Mr. Larry and several students engaged in a race to see who could finish their foot-and-a-half long pieces of watermelon the fastest.  Seeds flew and laughter abounding as the competition heated up.  In the end, everyone's face was left with big smiles and plenty of watermelon juice.

Gideon's Bible 

The “Gideon’s” recently came to visit the students at ABM Ministries.  We learned that the organization began with two traveling Christian businessmen, Samuel E. Hill and John H. Nicholson, in 1898, who had forgotten their Bibles at home. During their devotion that evening, a vision came to them.
