Cedarville has experienced a record enrollment of students...the Alumni Associa- tion has increased by 400...the engineering/nursing facility is targeted for comple- tion during the summer of 1992...and the support of faithful alumni and friends is strong. Personal blessings are abundant also. The news we receive from alumni as to how God is working in their lives is overwhelming. Needs for employment are being met...physical difficulties open doors for testimony...healthy children are born.. and alumni are having an impact for Christ on the world around them. Accept the challenge to celebrate the season of Christmas. Create a tradition that reflects Christ's birth. Take time to stop from the hustle and bustle of life and read the prophecy of His arrival on earth in Isaiah. Marvel at the miracle of His coming."Unto us a child is born!" Notjust any child, but our Wonderful Coun- selor, Mighty God,Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace! "ai-ve e//
