Bible School Happenings
Thank you for praying with us for the Bible School students, Staff and Guests during this Term. We need God in every way!
The Students who joined us in the January Term have adjusted well to their new community and it's a joy to see the Spirit of the Lord at work in everyone's lives in maturing a loving, kind, humble and Living community of brothers and sisters in Christ.
Missions Fest Vancouver:
Missions Fest, attracting upwards of 40,000 guests through it's doors annually was a fantastic experience for so many... not the least ...our entire student body!
As we do every year, the whole student body headed over for the weekend. Besides Capernwray Harbour being in charge of setting up the Mission Booths, hosting many, many seminars, being ushers and forming prayer teams for the thousands of youth at Youth Events, the students had time to browse the mission booths displaying many of the countless ways God reaches people in so many ways in so many countries! This expands the view of the harvest field God is reaching! Shouldn't we join Him!?
Jewish Theme Week with Jacques and Sharon Gabizon, leaders of Ariel Ministries Canada, were with us for the week. Jacques was teaching through the Minor Prophets. On Thursday, Sharon led and taught the Jewish Seder. It certainly was a great blessing to help many come to a deeper appreciation of what we should understand and on which we should contemplate about Jesus suffering, death and resurrection! This was followed by a wonderful Jewish feast! After the evening session by Jacques in the classroom, Sharon led some worshipful Jewish dancing drawing attention to the Lord whom we should worship! Wonderful! Lots of fun too ...in a good way!
Watch the short video of some of this.
Spring Break Missions:
Many students have signed up for Spring Break Mission trips ...so besides the studies and community responsibilities they are also busy preparing for those trips!
These trips include Jamaica, India, Seattle and Snohomish WA USA ...as well as a group of students staying at Capernwray Harbour to help serve all the guests of the conferences happening at home base while the Bible School is on break!
Another team of students and staff will be "on the road" ministering in music and in the Word proclaiming Christ in various Churches in Southern BC and Washington State.
Next month’s eNews will have more detail of the Who, What and Where for those Mission Trips.
This is an exciting time for the Students and us Staff as we dive wholeheartedly into the many opportunities to share Christ in all His sufficiency as He indwells us to save us from the power of sin ...one day soon ...very soon returning to save us from even the presence of sin! Then we will be "forever with the Lord"!
What a privilege to be part of God's anointing work in people's lives!
Celebrating God at Work
It was wonderful to see so many past guests & students at Mission Connexion in Portland OR, Missions Fest Vancouver and Breakforth in Edmonton!
Chris Fordham will be there to meet you if you can get to Missions Fest Alberta Feb. 24-26 and Elizabeth Joslin will be at MissionFest Toronto Apr. 12-14. Please come by the booths and visit them. We want to hear all about what the Lord has been and is doing in your lives.
Time Away Awaits You!
Knowing the demands, pressures & the demands of daily life, the Lady Staff at Capernwray Harbour invite you to come away to refresh your hearts and perhaps even a "refocus" of your heart and mind on the person of the Lord Jesus Christ through practical, heart warming and life challenging Bible teaching from the Lord through Bonnie Thomas, corporate worship, delicious meals, spectacular natural beauty with time to reflect & fellowship.
Join us this Spring for Ladies Conference:
May 25-27 OR June 1-3!
Topic of Bible Study:
The Gospel According to James
Are you "living" your faith? James watched Jesus LIVE IT and in writing this letter his desire is that we too would love as He loved, talk as He talked, pray as He prayed, and endure as He endured. Faith is not merely something to believe. Faith is what you LIVE, and Jesus comes alongside us to show us how!
Bonnie is currently a part-time teacher at Ravencrest Chalet, a Torchbearer Centre in Colorado, and travels worldwide as a retreat speaker & Bible teacher. Bonnie is married to Chris Thomas, the Director of Torchbearers International, and is very proud of their 3 adult sons and their growing families. Her passion is to proclaim Jesus Christ and make Him known.

Holiday Bible Weeks:
In July and August, Capernwray Harbour offers you seven "week-long" conferences specifically to provide you with opportunity to come for personal (and family?) refreshment ...spirit soul and body! It is the the Lord Jesus Christ by His Spirit Who will give you to eat and to drink deeply through the practical Bible teaching to all ages ...amidst a holiday setting. There's lots of "fun in the sun" too so we will spoil you completely in any one of those weeks!
6 of these weeks are geared towards families, though certainly, adults on their own are most welcome and will absolutely fit "hand in glove" too. Week #7 however is set aside specifically for ministry to grown-ups having no children with them!
