Happenings of Bible School
God at Work
The last few weeks have been full of student activities as this years' class begins to understand what it means to walk by faith applying what they've learned in the classroom in their daily lives.
Outreaches to the greater community is just one activity which has begun and the students who have chosen to participate in these organized outreaches have been blessed by giving of their time, energy and resources. Some of these outreaches include a ministry to the residents of Thetis Island (helping with practical labour), multiple children's ministries in schools, music ministries at various churches on Vancouver Island, Inner City Ministries in downtown Victoria and visiting Seniors. Please pray that there will be continual joy in the students' hearts as they are available to Christ Jesus in these ways.
The Leadership Training Students spent five days away at Mount Washington, north of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. This time away was a very refreshing time for them as they studied the book of 2 Timothy together. It was a time of reflection as each took time to look back on the previous few weeks giving praise to the Lord Jesus for all He has been doing in their personal lives and in the lives of the first year students during the first term. Studying 2 Timothy emphasized their the need for dependence on Christ Jesus and the strength that only He can provide during times of trials or testing. It is through these hardships that the second year students will learn to endure through all things for the sake of those who are watching their lives and to receive the promises that the Lord Jesus has for them as they trust Him through faith. Please pray that they will diligently seek to give themselves up for others in this way in the days, weeks and years ahead.
The students have also begun their studies into the book of Mark as they prepare to present to their Home Groups (aprx. 15 staff and students that meet together regularly in staff homes) one or two chapters which have been assigned to them. They are beginning to see that they too can open their Bibles and trust that the Lord Jesus will teach them of Himself by His Holy Spirit as they make themselves ready to read and listen to His Word. This is an exciting time for them as they, maybe for the first time, study the Bible. Our prayer, as a staff body, is that they will come to a greater understanding of the Life of Christ that wants and wills to live within each one and transform their lives. Its amazing that by His Grace He desires for us to experience Him in this way!
