After a five-month journey of plans, construction, and prayers, Davao Christian High School opened the doors of the senior high school building during its soft opening program last Sunday at 3 p.m.
School president Arthur Brian Yap expressed how thankful the school is to the Lord because of how much He has provided for the school. “Today, we look back, and we look back with grace because we know the Lord has been blessing us and the Lord has been at work in this school,” Yap said.
Yap also recalled how only five months ago the school prayed and asked the Lord to guide and bless the construction. “Five months after, here we are with a five-story building, ready to be used up to the third story, ahead of schedule,” he said.
“I remember just five and a half months ago, many of us were standing there and our background was the old canteen, and we were just praying that the Lord blesses the work of the construction that was to start on that very day.”
He added that while looking back, the school must also move forward in prayer. “Our prayer now is that this school will not be just about buildings. It will not be just about awards, or a school about academics. This will be a place where the Lord’s presence will be felt,” Yap said.
The building was designed by Architect Manuel Chiew, who was also the architect behind the ‘Campus in the Sky’ in C.P. Garcia, and the three-story, U-shaped facade in V. Mapa.
