Southern Africa Bible College has finally been able to restart. They are in for the long-haul with few breaks this year due to the late start. The student we help support, Pascal, seems like he was able to do some work over the COVID break. Attached is his latest report. Please keep him and the work of SABC in your prayers. For the elders, Ken D
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. May peace and joy be with you during these difficult times. The pandemic has brought challenges in how we live and worship the Lord, but through God’s power we remain strong and resolute in our walk with Him. During our college or school break (December- April) I had an opportunity to travel in various provinces in South Africa, attending funerals even in areas where the pandemic was said to be increasingly spreading fast and yet through God’s protective hand I was safe from the virus.
This experience has increased my faith in God and gave me an opportunity to grow a little closer to Him. During one of my travels, I ended up in an area called Ndumo, a village in the province of KwaZulu Natal (KZN), where I spent about two months teaching some brethren from various parts of the province. There I was assigned to teaching basic Bible knowledge and training people in ministry. This mission in my view was a great success as far as teaching God’s word and giving the brethren ministry training is concerned; which is vital in their service in the Lord’s Church.
We are now back to the Bible College and it feels refreshing to be in the classroom again after our long school break. I am looking forward to improve my studies and grow stronger in the knowledge of the Scripture and spiritual despite some personal challenges. May the Lord bless you as you continue to be a blessing to us at the college through the support we receive from your love. May you continue to be kept safe.
