2019 Nolan Christian Academy - Graduates

Lacie White Aaron Robinson
Valedictorian Salutatorian

Lacie White, the daughter of Adam and Mary White, and a member of Nolan FWB Church, is the first
Graduate who has been a student since the school’s inception in 2010. At that time, Lacie was only a
4th grader, and one of only five students the first year. She has been a great blessing to the school and
will be greatly missed. Lacie has helped lead the school choir each year she has attended, and she has
helped put on and direct several of the schools plays and skits. This year, she was WSAZ’s Best of the
Class 2019. Lacie has maintained a 3.754 GPA throughout her high school years, in conjunction with
working at Inez Deposit Bank where she started as a summer intern in 2016 and was hired on as a
part time teller at the Warfield Ky Branch. Since at the school Lacie has started teaching a Sunday
school class at the church on Sunday mornings and the school is proud of her for taking on such a
role. Lacie’s college plans include a 2 plus 3 with Southern and UPike to obtain an MBA. She plans on
attending college at Southern WV Community and Technical College for two years to obtain an
Associates degree in Business, then on to UPike for 3 years, in which the first two will be to obtain a
Bachelor’s Degree in Business, then an additional year, for their fast track Master’s Program, where
she will obtain a Master’s in Business Administration.

Aaron Robinson, the son of Paul and Bridgett Williamson, and a member of the Big Creek Freewill
Baptist Church, has only been a student of NCA for two years. However, since he came to the school,
he has been very much involved in all the school functions. He has been a great blessing and a joy to
be around. Aaron had been homeschooled prior to coming to NCA and was missing a few classes in
which he needed to graduate. However, he took on the challenge, and worked extra hard, and
completed everything needed, and maintained a 3.35 GPA. During Aaron’s senior year, he also took
on a part time job working at Arby’s, where his employer has high regards for him. Aaron took on the
challenge of speaking during chapel service throughout the year; and the school is very proud of
Aaron for being willing to stand up for God. He is also very active in his home church. Aaron’s college
plans are to attend Southern and work to get into their RN program. Aaron plans to take his general
education courses starting this coming semester while waiting to be accepted into the RN program,
once in the program he will complete the 2-year program to become a Registered Nurse. Aaron then
plans to continue his studies at UPike and obtain a Bachelor’s in Nursing.

"THE TRAVELER."
Written by: Lois (Dutey) Calhoun

"IF YOU KNEW HIM, LIKE I KNOW HIM."

The traveler was in the woods, a place that for some reason was always dear to his heart.
Maybe because he was raised in the country and loved climbing the hills, or maybe the
times he had spent with his sister who at one time, had a home built in the woods. It was
in these surroundings that he felt so close to God. It all seemed to bring back memories,
but most of all; it seemed God was so close to him here. As he strolled down the path that
was surrounded by tall trees of all kinds, he felt the wind blowing and the birds singing
high up in the tree tops. He stopped, closed his eyes, and took a deep breath. The smell of
the woods just seemed to make him feel at peace. He opened his eyes and kept walking.
Soon he could see a glimmer in the distance and wondered what it was. He had never been
in these woods before. As he neared the brightness, he realized it was a small creek of
water, and the sun was shining on it. Even though it seemed quite dark with all the shade
of the trees, the sun seemed to glisten on its ripples. He slowly walked over to it. He saw a
log laying on the ground next to a little stream of water that was flowing from the woods,
and was emptying into the creek. There seemed to be no one around. The water was stirred
with the breeze blowing across it, so he sat down on the log and just looked around. This
was one of those times that the traveler had taken his Bible with him. He had a back pack
and after laying it on the ground beside him, he reached in and took out his Bible. As he
took hold of it and looked at it, that feeling of peace came in his mind again. He closed his
eyes and began talking with God: "Dear Heavenly Father, as we come to you this day, we
want to thank you for your love that you show us always. Thank you Lord for giving me
this comfort I feel, that can only come from you. Thank you for my family and loved ones.

Father, I am so unworthy of such love you have given me. I have never deserved to have
such love and peace as I have had in my life, but I am so thankful for your mercy and
grace and for forgiveness you have given me so many times. How can I ever begin to
thank You for what you have given me? Father, I can look back and see all down my life,
You have blessed me. It seems that You gave me only the best. Thank you for being here
with me. Lord, I thank you!" as he wiped some tears away, he continued, "I feel my cup is
overflowing with your love inside. Father, all down through my life, while I was going
through so much sorrow, You were always there and made yourself known to me. I never
had to travel in those valleys alone. Thank you for your promises and God thank You for
being my Father, and my best friend. If only my loved ones would come and surrender
their lives to you, then they too could feel this peace that can only be felt, not told! Be
with me Lord, guide me and help me to do your will always. In Jesus' name I beg.
Amen." He held his Bible close to his chest. He couldn't do anything but let the tears flow
down his face. As he sat there with the sound of the ripples in the water nearby, he looked

up and whispered, “Thank you!"
The traveler opened his Bible to II Cor. 5: 1 and Chapter

6: 2."For we know that if our earthly house of this
tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an
house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens." 6:2;
("For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in
the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is
the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.")
The traveler thought of all the many loved ones of his that
had gone on over Home, and how they were in the
presence of God. Then he thought of the 2nd verse of
chapter 6, where it spoke of today being the day of
salvation. How his heart ached to see his family comes
back to the Lord. He sat on the dead tree that had fallen
there near the water. "At one time", he thought, "it was tall and alive and the birds would
come and rest on its branches, and find shelter. Then it died and fell to the ground. Now it
lay as though it had always been just a dead log by the lake."
The traveler then thought of the 1st chapter of Psalms where it spoke of a tree being
planted by the water. He turned over to the verse and began reading. (Psalms 1-3; "Blessed
is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of
sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. (2) But his delight is in the law of the Lord;
and in his law doth he meditate day and night. (3) And he shall be like a tree planted by the
rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and
whatsoever he doeth shall prosper."
The scripture along with the tree made him think of how the saints who were once living
for the Lord in their lifetime, and how they were a light to so many folks. They like the
tree had been such a comfort to so many others. He thought of how the light from the sky
above was reflecting a mirror image in the water, and how they too had been a reflection

of God's love in their lives. He knew God was always with those loved ones who now had
gone on over Home. Some may not have had a lot of this world's goods, but God supplied
their needs and they had something inside that even during their struggles in life, they had
that deep settled peace. The traveler thought; ”Now that they are gone on over home,
folks may just think of them as being in the grave, with their life being over.' But he
thought: "the real them: (their soul,) is alive over in Paradise and know where they are!
Then when Christ returns, He will bring those precious souls with Him and they will rejoin
that body that will been changed, and then go back with Christ, to live eternally in
Heaven's land!"
The traveler got up and put his hand down in the cool water. It felt so good! It was so
soothing that he kept moving his hand in the cool water. He slowly got back up and just
stood there looking at the water before him and thought, where it said in the Bible, if all
the things Christ had done were written down, that the whole earth could not contain it.
Then he thought of how much God and Jesus love each of us, and how if all the waters
from all the oceans, seas, rivers, lakes, and streams, were all added together to make a
large body of water, that God's love in comparison towards us, is even greater. It made
him think of how Jesus allowed them to nail Him to the cross, how He shed His blood, and
then after He died, they pierced His side, and blood and water came forth. Because He
died for us, He became our water of life, if only we accept His gift on that old cross. What
a great love the Water of Life has for all of us. It's through His love and sacrifice on that
old cross, that made it possible for us to feel His presence that stirs so sweetly down
deep inside! How he wish his family could feel that peace like he felt. Again he looked at
the sky being reflected in the clear water as he said out loud, "Lord let my life be a
reflection of your love, so others can see you in me, and they will want to have what I
have. God I want them to know you, like I know you."

COMMENT:
We all need to realize if time permits we too will go by the way of the grave, that we
need to have lived for God in a way all others who knew us, or ever met us, saw God in us.
Riches of this life, or prestige or whatever the world holds, cannot give anyone that peace,
nor can it take us over Home to live forever in a place without tears, death or sorrow. But
for us who belong to God, it will be an everlasting day without end. Eternal Life. I pray
whoever reads this, whether sinner or saint, that you will ponder on where you will spend
eternity. Now is the day of salvation, not tomorrow, because you do not know if you will
live to even see the end of this day. As God said, now is the day of salvation.

This week we are using You tube again. Here is a song that THE PERRYS sing called: IF
YOU KNEW HIM. We are so very grateful to all these wonderful singers who allow us to
listen to their songs of praise to God on You Tube. (Here is the link to that song:
