COMING UP – COOKIE TIME & STUFFED ANIMALS
Every year we send cookies to Cherokee Home for Children for their holiday party.
So each one of us needs to think: should I bake cookies or rather buy them? The children and staff like either. Whatever we decide on, our contribution needs be in the Fellowship Room before Wednesday, December 4th, the day when the ladies will pack them up. We also collect stuffed toys, animals and dolls, before our Holiday Fellowship Meal on Sunday, December 8th. Those toys (without button eyes or other loose parts) are donated to the Seton Care-A-Van to give to children who face traumas when treated for their various maladies. Thanks to all for helping!
Wednesday, November 27 (Day before Thanksgiving) and all Classes will be dismissed

OUR SPECIAL HOLIDAY FELLOWSHIP
Our pot-luck Holiday fellowship will be Sunday noon on December 8th. By then, we should have all the stuffed animals (no button eyes) that we yearly donate to Seton Care-A-Van. We are looking forward to this fellowship which will also be very special because Doug & Diane Wheeler will be with us. Doug will give us his final and “energetic” report about his work in Nigeria in Bible class, and he will preach at the worship hour.

Student – Pascal Dlomo
This is a letter from the student we help to support at the South African Bible College. Please keep Pascal in your thoughts and prayers as he studies in preparation to serve the kingdom. For the elders, Ken D
The common thing that can be agreed on by the whole world is that the year is coming to an end leaving us with different experiences some of which will never happen again. I have experienced how it is to write the college’s exams during winter for the first time; and soon it will be exam time again and the preparations have begun. Some of the classes are finished; while some are coming to an end. Not that long ago it was a lectureship and I had only been told about the hard work that is put in for the preparation. This time I was a part of it but it was worth of it. During the last Friday before the start of the lectureship: I had an opportunity the go to an airport for the first time in my life. Seeing the pilots I was reminded that I once dreamed of becoming one of them; but now I chose a better path.
My Fridays are still my days of rest; but I think that this should come to an end to open more room for studying time in preparation for the examinations. Apart from that most things in my life retain their consistencies.
Work with a congregation
I am still granted the opportunity to work with a congregation which I really enjoy and they seem to be happy having me around. I get to participate in all the worship services. But soon I will be leaving them as I will be going home for the coming holidays. I look forward to see them in the following year. As I am going back home in KwaZulu Natal, I will be working with my home congregation as a way of showing my gratitude for their support that they have given to make my stay at the college more easy.
Thank you for your support. May God bless you for it.
