CHANGES COMING IN MARCH
March 6th: From this date on, there will be a change in regard to the men who are serving at the Lord’s Table. Only the man in position #2 will say all the prayers. In regard to this change: are there any additional men who would be willing to serve in the “no prayer” positions? Please let one of the elders or Joe know.
March 27th: On this last Sunday in March we will have our Fellowship Meal after our morning worship assembly for the first time. Because of this different arrangement, we will have a combined Bible class in the auditorium on those Sundays, so that the hostesses can work on the preparations for the meal. Afterwards, will have a devotional and then we will be dismissed for the day.
Our heartfelt sympathy, love and prayers go out to those who have lost loved ones in the last days:
Hugh Darr Huckaby, the cousin of Bob Foster, passed from this life on Sunday, February 14th. He was also the brother-in-law of Doris, having been married to her twin sister.
A memorial was held for Darr at the Shep, Texas, Community Center on February 15th, with many friends and family attending.
Harold Hancock’s brother and Sarah’s brother-in-law, JL. (Buddy) Hancock, passed away Wednesday afternoon, February 17th, in McEwen, Tennessee. A memorial service was pending there with a future memorial service pending in Abilene.
Dear Church Family,
Thanks so much for calls, cards, visits, and sitting at the hospital during my knee surgery. All is going well for recovery. We feel so blessed to have our church family and ask God’s blessings on each of you. Our love to all, Harold and Sarah Hancock.

BEAUTIFUL FOOTNOTES . . .
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
Happy Valentine’s Day from South Africa Bible College!
I hope that you and your Valentine had a great day just hanging out. While some may think Valentine’s Day was fabricated by the greeting card and flower industry, I do believe there is value in it. The value is that it reminds us to love! I believe this message is important in the world at this time. It has been since the beginning. That is why God sent his one and only son, because he loves and his message is one of love. At SABC they exist to carry out this message of love. To “…bring mankind back to the Father.” As Eddy Nkosi, Dean of Students will say below. Your prayers and support make that possible. Kirk Eason
My Name is Eddy Nkosi. One of my main reasons of teaching at SABS is always about that which Jesus did for us that is that He left heaven. I believe that in Heaven He was ok. He had everything, but He left all that to come down to Earth because He had a mission. The mission was to bring Mankind back to His Father God so that to me is very encouraging and that’s the purpose behind me teaching at SABC to try to do my part to continue to do what Jesus did to be here and impart knowledge to our students.
Our hope is that we teach them so they will be able to go out and teach others and they have been doing that for quite some time now. Your support makes it possible for me and others as well to be able to fulfill that mandate we have which was left by the Lord Jesus Christ, that is to bring mankind back to the Father.
I thank the church in Roscoe Texas who has supported me the last twelve years, I just love them. Supporters faithfully have helped us all to do what we do, that is to teach the students the word of God. Many people have been baptized and know the Lord because of your support. I don’t know what we would be able to accomplish without your support. So thank you so much.
We are so blessed to be partners with SABC in “helping bring mankind back to the Father”. Please continue to pray for them. For the elders, Ken D
