The Mile of Hope

Every school year we teach our staff and children how to help others – people who are in material, social or emotional need. We raise money to support them, we pray for them, and show them our love and care. Continue reading

The first Martin Model United Nations – MarMUN 2020

Since the opening of our high school in academic year 2013/2014, small groups of our students have been participating in Model United Nations (MUN) conferences, both in Slovakia and abroad.

An MUN is a simulation of the work of the real United Nations. Student delegates represent different countries and work with others to produce a resolution which will help solve a given problem. For example, we recently attended a conference in Torún, Poland. One of our five delegates represented France on the Human Rights Council (HRC). The council was attempting to resolve the issue of human trafficking.

Start of the School Year – Devotion for LAMS Teachers & Staff

I am going to talk about how important you are.

I know how important you are because during my youth I attended a school not unlike this one. From 4-year-old kindergarten to 8th grade, I was a student at St. Johns Lutheran school in Glendale, Wisconsin. It is a smaller school than the Lutheran Academy in Martin. It’s older, too, though, I know by European standards, 153 years is not that old. But age and size aside, it was very much like our Academy here in Martin. We had students of various academic abilities, large classrooms, a technologically progressive staff, classes in religion, math, science, English, PE, music, and art. We had no classes in Slovak, though, which might come to you as a surprise. It was a good school, and I’m glad I attended it.

I know that for most of you, going to a religious school was not an option during your childhood. The state would probably have preferred Christianity to die away with the old grannies that attended Sunday services. Because of this, maybe teaching at a religious school still seems surreal. Maybe for some of you, it seems like a dream come true (despite the kids that make some days feel like nightmares). And maybe for some of you, it’s just a job. Regardless of how you feel about it, you are important. Continue reading

Sports tournament with students from the Lutheran Elementary School and Roma children from Bambusky

How many people from poor communities do you know in person or by their names? How much do you know about their everyday struggles? We often hear in the media about people or communities living on the edge of society. We discuss their situation with friends, but do we know from experience what their lives are really like? We say that we have our problems and challenges and not much time to get to know those on the other side of … town. Continue reading

Teambuilding 2019 – Lutheran preschool

Our lutheran preschool has a nice team of teachers. They love their work and they do their best to create an atmosphere of welcome and acceptance for every child in their care. But sometimes they also need to care for themselves – to strenghten their professional and personal relationships. SO, once a year they go out and have a teambulding, usually in the nature, where they can rest, talk and enjoy each other company. Continue reading

Thus far on grandpa’s trail

Gone!! It was gone!! I stood staring at a vacant lot, unbelieving; refusing to accept what my eyes told me. I turned to my companions. Maybe we were in the wrong spot, Wrong Street, wrong town. But I had to believe them as they pointed out the obvious. House #77 in Nedašovce, Slovakia, the same one we had discovered 3 years ago, the same one we walked through just last year, the same one full of history, MY family history – was now history itself. There was nothing left of the house in which Stefan Diviš, my grandfather, had lived before leaving this beautiful country. Nothing but the dirt it sat on. Not even a pile of rubble remained. No Ebenezer stones here. As my companions and I walked a little further up the road, reality began to sink in. I clung to the hope that something was wrong, surely Grandpa’s house would appear. Alas, I had to accept what my eyes told me. It was truly gone! Vanished. Continue reading
