CHEROKEE DAY IN A DIFFERENT FORMAT!
This year, Saturday, May 1st, has been designated to be CHEROKEE DAY at Cherokee Home for Children. This “Drive-through” event will have guests enter the campus by their new arched entrance for a driving tour of their campus. There will be a take-out line at the pavilion, where the visitors in the cars can pick up a delicious barbecue sack lunch to enjoy on their ride home. Drive-through time is between 11 AM and 1 PM.
Like always, our congregation will send a check to the HOME. Money donations are very helpful, because with those the HOME is able to buy groceries in bulk.
Our check will be personally delivered on that day. All of our members are invited to come and visit CHEROKEE HOME FOR CHILDREN on this special day!

SOUTH AFRICA BIBLE COLLEGE STUDENT REPORT

A new report from Tyler Meredith, whom we help support at Sunset School of Preaching. Please keep Tyler and his fellow students in your prayers. For the elders, Ken D

My third term at SIBI was one of the most challenging academically. Along with taking classes, I had the opportunity to do some traveling. I was able to preach at several local congregations and one supporting congregation. I traveled to Kingsland, New Braunfels, and Midland. I have gained much knowledge and confidence in what I am doing this term.

The classes that I took this term are Preaching from the Old Testament, Romans, Family and Youth Ministry Toolbox, Christian Counseling, Church History and Doctrine, and New Testament Greek. Preaching from the OT helps to understand how to preach using OT scripture effectively today. Romans was an in-depth study over the book of Romans. Family and Youth Ministry Toolbox is designed to help one learn how to use different materials in a youth classroom. Christian Counseling teaches one how to effectively council members in the church. Church History and Doctrine took us back to the beginning of the Christian religion and the advancements that have occurred since then. New Testament Greek teaches one how to use tools to understand the Greek language in the New Testament scripture. This term was challenging academically, but it was extremely helpful in gaining knowledge.

This term I was able to share some of the knowledge I have gained at several churches in the area. I visited Plains, TX, Seagraves, TX, Rotan, TX and Kingsland, TX. Highland Lakes Church of Christ in Kingsland is one of my supporting congregations and I was blessed to spend some extra time with them on a weekend trip. All of the churches that I visited with this term were so kind and welcoming to me. One of my favorite things about being here at SIBI has been visiting and fellowshipping with local churches. I have had wonderful experiences at these churches.

During this term, I was also blessed with the opportunity to travel several times. Some of these trips were to local congregations, and other trips were farther away. I traveled to Kingsland, TX to visit a supporting congregation and fellowship with them. While I was in Kingsland, I got to visit with the elders and even stay with an old friend. I also traveled to New Braunfels to watch my fiancée play in her golf tournament. We also traveled to Midland, TX for a day to see some sights and visit family and friends.

We have now started meeting in-person for class again (like in the good old days)! We are still remaining moderately strict with the COVID protocols, but it feels like old times again. I am thankful for that.

I just want to let you all know how grateful I am to have had this opportunity. My life here in Lubbock and my schooling at SIBI would not be possible without your support. Thank you so much for the prayers and care you have shown me now and in previous years. I pray God will continue to bless you in everything you do.
