International Festival at Davis...International Events in the history of Davis

This week has been the International Festival here at Davis College. Today there were many seminars for different mission and Christian relief agencies from around the world to downtown Binghamton. It is the perfect time to remember the world that God has put us in and the needs all around. I have been thinking about Papua New Guinea where I went in 2005. I also started thinking about the International love that our founder John A. Davis had. Back in the Theologues from the 1920s I can see his passion for Multi-cultural or Mult-Ethnic Ministry. Long before integration was happening in America, Dr. Davis had African-American students here on this campus; along with African Foreign Exchange students and Hispanic students. This November (Thanksgiving Day) will mark 85 years since the Students League of Many Nations was founded on the grounds of PBTS. It was started by the Freshman class giving a presentation on Thanksgiving (since in the early years the students did not return home for Thanksgiving). Throughout this month I will begin to present the League (and I welcome any stories from Alumni who were in it). Research is still progressing on my Davis Presidents project. A lot of the research is complete. Keep sending your memories of PBTS, PBC, and Davis. Remember the Sun Never Sets on our Alumni.
