As is our custom, we collect cookies to be sent to Cherokee Home for Children for their holiday party. The Ladies Class members plan on packing up the cookies on Wednesday, November 28th, which is the last class of 2018. The cookie contribution from our members needs to be in the Fellowship Room by Sunday, November 25th. They can either be home-made cookies or store-bought ones.
Another project is our collection of stuffed animals for the Care Van. We need to have those before our Holiday Party, tentatively scheduled for Sunday, December 2nd. Remember, those stuffed dolls and/or animals should not have loose parts that can easily come off! More information is upcoming!

What follows is a letter from Amanda Khumalo, whom we helped support. She has graduated from South Africa Bible College, but is working part-time or voluntary as a children’s minister for a growing congregation in Soweto. She is still looking for a secular job. Supporting her in college is going to pay dividends for years to come as she works with children and teaches other adults to teach children more effectively. Pray for God to continue to use her to His glory. For the elders, Ken D
Dear Brethren,
This year I was granted the opportunity to teach the SABC lady students’ from a practical point of view, how to teach the children during the annual Lectureship and coordinate the programme. Working like this at SABC has been an amazing experience for me, doing what you love always is an amazing experience.
At first it was extremely daunting, it seemed as though a mountain was right before me, some of the ladies I was teaching I had studied with, and attended the previous training classes with them. It also occurred in my mind that I had never coordinated an event as big as lectureship, and could not help but remember how young I am both physically and spiritually.
Through encouragement, and acknowledgement from staff members and lecturers from SABC I overcame my fears. It was challenging, being on the other side of the coin, it was only a year ago that I was a student as well.
I would like to think I had done my best at teaching the lady students at SABC and coordinating the Sunday school lectureship for 2018. If given another chance could I do better? I believe so, and experience is always the best teacher.
40158096_10216873060968970_5044157755909210112_oThe opportunity at SABC did not just humble me but gave me purpose, a reason to wake up, as I had been franticly looking for a job for months and am still looking. Being chosen by the College to work with the students there is a dream, an opportunity I will forever cherish.
Seeing growth and development in the students was a great achievement to me, what I did not realize was that I would grow from this experience and opportunity. I have become an even better teacher, I think, my understanding of Sunday school and things relating to it, has broadened. The beauty of this is that it is through SABC that I am the teacher that I am, and I will forever be grateful to SABC and your support of this great College. May God bless you for your concern for us here in South Africa.
Amanda Khumalo
