Power UP weekend with Ricky Schwarz
.

In January 2010, Midland Adventist Academy sponsored another "POWER UP!" weekend, this edition featuring guest speaker Ricky Schwarz. An Acrosports gold medalist by age 15, Ricky was working as a stuntman for Disney when he was still a teenager. While performing with the famed Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas, Ricky heard the Lord calling him back to his roots as an Adventist; he is now a youth pastor in California.

Ricky shared his testimony with approximately 200 students and friends, including a large group from Ozark Adventist Academy.

After vespers on Sabbath evening, Ozark and Midland played a pair of basketball games; the Lady Mustangs took the first game 45-16, and the Midland guys finished the evening with a 51-46 triumph over the Skyhawks.
