How lovely are Thy dwelling
places, O LORD of hosts!
My soul longed and even yearned
for the courts of the LORD;
My heart and my flesh sing for joy
to the living God.
The bird also has found a house,
And the swallow a nest
for herself, where she
may lay her young,
Even Thine altars,
O LORD of hosts,
My King and my God.
How blessed are those
who dwell in Thy house!
They are ever praising Thee.
How blessed is the man
whose strength is in Thee;
In whose heart are the
highways to Zion!
Passing through the
valley of Baca, theymake it a spring,
The early rain also covers
it with blessings.
They go from strength to strength,
Every one of them appears
before God in Zion.
O LORD God of hosts,
hear my prayer;
Give ear, O God of Jacob!
Behold our shield, O God,
And look upon the face
of Thine anointed.
For a day in Thy courts is
better than a thousand outside.
I would rather stand at the
threshold of the
house of my God,
Than dwell in the
tents of wickedness.
For the LORD God is
a sun and shield; from those who walk uprightly.
The LORD gives grace and glory;
No good thing does He withhold
O LORD of hosts,
How blessed is the
man who trusts in Thee!

Spring Break Happenings
In Burundi, 4 students and one staff shared at a youth conference,
visited & assisted with a building project at an orphanage as well
as a re-forestation project in the Kirundo province. Traveling
onto Kigali, Rwanda, the team learned of the affects of the 1994
genocide and the efforts being made to help bring peace &
reconciliation between victims & offenders. The Lord
Jesus is working to build His Kingdom in these 2 broken countries
through many young national believers who are sacrificially &
wholeheartedly serving Him.
Continuing to practically support Mexican Missionaries with whom
Capernwray Harbour has a long-term relationship was the context of this
year’s trip to Mexico. The team of 14 painted, renovated &
fixed existing & developing mission facilities in Tijuana & a
rural town 4 hours east. Students stepped out of their comfort
zones despite cultural & language differences to share Christ
through dramas, testimonies & Sunday School lessons. A rich
time of giving & receiving…blessing and being blessed!
Eleven students served the homeless at Union Gospel Mission's Women
& Children's Shelter in downtown Seattle WA. Activities
included cleaning, organizing, maintenance, cooking, tutoring and
caring for children, "shadowing" UGM staff, leading Bible studies,
sharing testimonies and street evangelism. The Lord was glorified as students were stretched and challenged to depend on His equipping for
tasks that sometimes seemed "too big". They witnessed the
transforming power of the living Word of God in the women, children,
and staff at the shelter.
God is working at Green Valley Bible Centre (near Bangalore) and as the curriculum,
school course and outreach opportunities continue to develop, one of the most exciting
things that has opened up is the chance to go out and do service
projects in the local villages. The girls head up this outreach with a
group of 12 students and the testimony of Christ is
fantastic. The villagers can hardly believe it when they see the
"whities" going in and getting dirty lifting up rocks and cleaning up
cow manure! It's the little things like this which give great hope and
ambition to continue the outreaches and by these means allow the Lord
to transform lives in this valley!
Is. 61:11 "For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, and
as a garden causes the things sown in it to spring up, So the Lord GOD
will cause righteousness and praise to spring up before all the
Home at the ‘Harbour’
Quilters, cadets, families, pastors, ladies & students were served
with care & enthusiasm by home staff & a support staff of 12
Bible School students. These retreats & outdoor
education programmes provide strategic opportunities to bear witness of
the risen Lord Jesus through word, deed and a quality of service that
reflects His character. Not just mere programmes but investments
made in hearts & lives with eternal value.
