SIBI PREACHING STUDENT – TYLER MEREDITH
This fall our congregation began helping support a new student in the Sunset School of Preaching in Lubbock, Tyler Meredith. Tyler has just finished his two year Adventures in Missions service in a college ministry in Commerce, TX. Tyler is from Ohio and in addition to training for ministry he is also serving as an AIM assistant helping the current AIMers in their preparation for service. This is part of Tyler’s latest reports. Please keep Tyler in your prayers. For the elders, Ken D
Hello everyone! It’s newsletter time! I hope you all enjoy reading about the awesome journey God is taking me on! Thank you all so much and God bless. This has truly been an adventure. As many of you may know I have started school as well as beginning my time as an AIM assistant. There are so many amazing things I have gotten to do, and many more to come. I started all of my classes as well as started some cool ministry stuff with the AIM students!
I started my work as an AIM assistant. When new AIMers are preparing to come to Lubbock the staff has to get everything ready for them to have as smooth of a transition as possible. So we had to go into the AIM apartments and clean them really nice. When all of the AIM apartments were clean and ready to go we had a small retreat to spend some time together and get some much needed relaxation. We had the opportunity to just relax and spend some time with old friends. There are many new AIM assistants this year so I also got to know them a little better as well. We spent some time singing together and some small devotionals.
The next week the AIMers arrived in town and we greeted them and showed them some of the many things they need to know. Once they were all here we went on a trip to a congregation in Clovis, New Mexico that is closely associated with AIM. We did a flag presentation as well as serve and praise with them on Sunday. We also got to go with them to the fairgrounds and sing for about an hour with the speakers playing some amazing praise through the fairgrounds. After this we made a stop on the way home to see some of the believers in Amherst, Texas. We sang and fellowshipped with them as well.
In the midst of all of this, I started my classes in the Bible Program at Sunset. My classes this term are the Life Teachings of Jesus, Old Testament History 1, Introduction to Ministry Studies, and A Preaching Lab. Most of the classes I am taking right now are really basic classes. They are set to begin at a somewhat easier pace. Although they are simpler classes they are still very deep, digging into some of the very crucial teaching of the books we are in.
Thank you all so much for giving me this chance to study and love on those around me! God has truly been blessing me and giving me a chance to bless others with this opportunity. Thank you all so much for the love and kindness you have given me!
