ACE International

This is only a sample Ace International page content. In November 1999, Steve and Bette packed up boxes of training materials, 15 used laptop computers and all of the suit cases they had and moved from Provo, USA to Cebu, Philippines. Bette always felt a sense of urgency about this move and getting the Academy started. The first thing they did the day after they arrived was attend a countrywide CES conference in Manila. The Gibsons distributed 1,300 Academy applications.
 
With the help of their friend Ed Siady, they found a nice house for the Academy, set up a bank account and hired a secretary. Steve and Bette went to the post office every day looking for applications from returned missionaries. For several weeks there were no applications, and then came one, then two. One day they received 11. They wept after receiving 25 applications for the first batch of 25 students.
