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.
