In March, Maranatha celebrated the dedication of the Manipur Adventist Boarding School in India. Hundreds of people, including local dignitaries, attended the celebration, packing the new school auditorium.
The Manipur School was established in the 1960s and it serves 800 students in primary and secondary school. But after more than four decades, the campus is severely deteriorated. There are holes in the classroom walls, the dormitory structures are crumbling, and staff housing is flimsy and unsafe. The new Maranatha building is the start of a larger renovation and reconstruction project, requested by church leaders in India.
