Christ's Life Poured Out!
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 that's underway 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, 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 (2nd Year's) spent five days away at Mount Washington, north of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. This retreat time away alone with a couple of Leading Staff was a very refreshing time for them as they studied the book of I Timothy together. It was a time of reflection as each made 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 1 Timothy emphasized the need to trust in our Lord Jesus Christ with a pure heart, good conscience and a sincere faith. It is His divine work in our lives that transforms us into His image! We often want to rush this process but God's timing is perfect in every way. We can trust Him to accomplish His work in our hearts as well as in those around us.
The students have also begun their studies into the book of Mark to present in "small group" contexts called HOME GROUPS. These are an amazing "learning" experience in groups of 12, each group in a Staff Home.
They are beginning to see that there are NO exceptions to this incredible experience of seeing and hearing from God directly from His Word as that is the only "Text Book" and the Holy Spirit of God can show them the message of Life through Christ's indwelling power as they open their Bibles and trust Him to teach them of Himself. God delights to do this work! It is the foundation (Jesus says in Matthew 7) to standing strong in every storm! "hearing these Words of Mine AND DOING them...".
This is an exciting time for them as maybe for the first time ever they study the Word to know Him ...not "just" to teach the scripture! However, the productive part about each one "teaching" ...is that it tends to cement the study in their minds and hearts too!
As a staff body we constantly pray that each one will come to a deeper and more intimate, living knowledge of Christ's Life as He wants and wills to live IN and THROUGH each one ... transforming their lives in the whole process!
Its amazing that by His great favour He longs for us to experience Him in this way!
