Southern Africa Bible College Newsletter, September 2015
Twenty sixteen marks 50 years for the Southern Africa Bible College. And what a 50 years it has been. Fourteen hundred attendees from over 30 countries. Now leading in over 40 countries. Accredited Bachelor of Theology degree. A 22-acre campus with dorms for men and women, along with married student housing. It is quite a story. Currently we have 39 students.
SABC Class of 2015 takes a break during their winter mission trip! Their report, reported by Mpendulo Kevin Mothoa in his own words: Three weeks later and more than 5,000km travelled from Joburg to East London, Port Elizabeth, Cape Town then back to Joburg, we thank the Lord for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity we had as the Southern Africa Bible College third -year class of 2015. We are also truly grateful to Him for a safe, hassle free trip. We met and made friends with amazing people, both young and old, people who love the Lord and His people and His word. There isn’t a place we went to where we were not made to feel at home.
We thank the Lord for all the brethren who hosted us, and praise Him still for everyone we met. We were privileged to be involved in the programmes of various congregations: Area-Wide Sing Alongs, Vacation Bible School, a Youth Workshop, a Gospel Campaign, Tract Drives, and among others, Philani and Tshepo were even invited to a local radio station in East London to discuss the topic: “How to Change our World”. There were at least eight baptisms on our trip, both from our work and the work of other brethren (glory be to God), and countless other souls were edified by the word of God. We are humbled that the Lord chose us to have such an impact in the lives of people through the preaching of His word. Thank you to everyone who kept us in their thoughts and prayers. A special word of appreciation also goes out to all those individuals and congregations who supported us financially. May the Lord bless you all abundantly. We are already back in class now for the final stretch of our studies. Please continue to keep us all in your prayer s, as we keep you in ours.
Please continue to pray for these students and this school. For the elders, Ken D.
