Saturday, June 28, was the second-ever graduation at COTN's International Christian Academy in Malawi! Twenty-six students—eleven girls and fifteen boys—walked in the graduation.

COTN-Malawi board member Richard Chigwenembe read a greeting to the graduates from COTN founders Chris and Debbie Clark.

The photos just came in. Here's a look at that very special day!

Here are her reflections as she prepares for graduation:
