We started November with prayer for those who sent in requests in response to the mission trip letter. How powerful the Spirit was as we united in prayer, believing that those things which we said would come to pass! (Mark 11: 22-26)
Thank you for giving us the privilege of praying for you and those you love.
Susan Dial and Mitzi Nel shared their testimonies with us of the many miracles that they have witnessed in their walks with Jesus. A son’s dead kidney returned to life and function. African children were miraculously fed in the midst of famine. These ladies have poured out their lives for the sake of the gospel and they have the stories to prove it! We were exhorted, edified and comforted by their visit to CHARIS Bible College in Washington DC.
Wendell Parr saw Charis Bible College-Washington DC for the first time in November as part of a tour of the eastern USA extension schools. For the few who don’t know Wendell, when God called Andrew to build a Bible College, Wendell was the man Andrew contacted.
Wendell spent two evenings with us, teaching us HOW to present our bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God. And HOW to not be conformed to this world but to be transformed by the renewing of the mind, that we may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect will of God. (Romans 12:1,2) As we all know, it is fairly easy to know scriptures in the head. Wendell showed us how to live these important scriptures in our day-to-day lives.
On November 20, students completed classes for the fall term. Winter term classes begin December 1. New students may enroll for the winter term on December 1.
Even if you can’t enroll, please come visit us.
I want to close this newsletter with part of an e-mail from a student. She said,
“This Thanksgiving I am thankful for the both of you and Janice
for answering the call to open a CBC in this area. It has and it is changing my life.”
