ELTON – The Indian Bible Academy (IBA) hosted an Agricultural Field Day here Thursday to raise money for orphaned children in Romania. The field day consisted of IBA students and staff leading tours of the various agricultural projects the school has been working on, including a corn maze, soybean fields, cattle herd, pumpkin patch, and timber acreage. A lunch of Indian tacos and cha-wah-ka (a corn soup) was served to touring groups and guests, with all proceeds going toward the orphanage fund.

The IBA was created and is directed by John Cernek, current pastor of Indian Bible Church and former prinicipal of Bethel Christian School in Jennings. The K-12 school is a unique Private Agricultural Charter School that boasted 15 students last year on 80 acres of timber and 90 acres of cropland.
