  • Reading Story—"Schools for God's Children" Ellen White remembered a horrifying incident as a school girl. A teacher, in anger, mistakenly hit Ellen on the forehead with a ruler, leaving an ugly, bleeding gash. The memory of this incident motivated Mrs. White to try and find a way to start Adventist schools.
  • Audio Story—"Education's Shaky Start" In 1853, Martha Byington taught the first SDA school in a house with a little more than a dozen students. There they could have Bible classes as well as learn "the three Rs". Conducting a school was not easy, however, and it eventually died out. A few years later, the Battle Creek Church decided to open a school. They asked John Fletcher Byington, Martha's brother, if he'd be willing to teach. This time parents complained that the discipline was too strict, and the school was shut down. A few years later, some young people took the necessary steps toward establishing Christian education. Edson White introduced himself to a man who was sawing wood. The man's name was G. H. Bell. Mr. Bell had been a teacher for 15 years but had come to the Health Institute to improve his health. Edson asked him if he would be willing to teach him and a few friends in the evenings. Mr. Bell agreed. He was surprised when 14 young people showed up at his door ready to learn.

Besides, a young unmarried girl wasn't supposed to travel around. Ellen Harmon became depressed, and some believers came together pray for her. Ellen agreed to join them for prayer. A sudden light came upon her, and Ellen knew she had to tell others about what she had seen. Her sister wondered how Ellen could speak publicly when her voice was so weak, but God gave her the strength, and her voice remained strong while she spoke.
