The Joy Continues


It is true, God loves to bring joy to the hearts of His faithful.   We at Bethany Academy are learning that He has a very funny sense of humor to boot.

In the last 24 hours we have been in awe of how He has taken an unbelievable half court shot to the world---bringing a glimpse of His humor this Christmas season.  The resounding response after people have viewed the now famous video is one of happiness. Many people have said for some reason it brings them to happy tears.   

The Ramey's, and Bethany Academy, are pleased -as -punch to play a role in His Christmas merriment.  For us, the first video going viral was more than enough. However, God wasn't done yet.  Click on the attached photo to see what happens when Angela Ramey attempts another shot on Good Morning America live.

The joy of the season is the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.  Only a God as big as our God could use Angela's heart for feeding the hungry and this school in such an amazing fashion.  May these video's bring you unspoken joy and happiness.

Merry Christmas from Bethany Academy and the Rameys!
