It is great once again to update you about what has been happening at school during the month of June. The school is back in full swing from a short break and all our students reported back on time. They are much geared up to wrap up their final year. From the explanation of each student, we can easily conclude that each one of them had a very fruitful break as far as the expansion of the Kingdom of God is concerned. The following are some excerpts from their reports:
“Apart from doing my personal evangelism in Mikomfwa township of Luanshya, I studied with Matthew, a younger brother to my sister-law, who later become a Christian two weeks ago.”(Clive Kabika, Student at Bear Valley Bible Institute-Zambia)
“I visited the family of the late evangelist Mubanga in Walale. We had Bible studies and one of the daughters of our late brother gave herself and asked to be baptized. We made some arrangements and she got baptized the week that followed.” (Boniface Sianjina, Student at Bear Valley Bible Institute-Zambia)
“During the holiday, I was able to visit and preach to some Churches in Kafue area of Lusaka Province. Just like Aquila and Pricilla I met one brother from one cup church and I explained the doctrine concerning this issue correctly.”(Andrew Mwila, Student at Bear Valley Bible Institute-Zambia)
“During my holiday, I did personal evangelism as I visited my relatives in Mpongwe. I was privileged to teach the gospel to my family and my friends.” (Joseph Musonda, Student at Bear Valley Bible Institute-Zambia)
“I preached at Myengelwa Church of Christ during the school break and I studied with the members in their homes and also at Church”(Albert Phiri, Student at Bear Valley Bible Institute-Zambia)
“I did personal evangelism in Kawama, Ndola, and I had an opportunity to study with my family about the true Church and the true doctrine. At the moment my family goes to Christian Church” (Stephen Ngosa, Student at Bear Valley Bible Institute-Zambia)
And on another development, Cephas Mwamba had the opportunity to teach and baptize two people and also met with Brother Josiah Masiye who came from Livingstone in Southern Province. The two brothers met in Ganaton, Kitwe, which is the next town from Luanshya of about 85 kilometres northwest from the School. The two had a fruitful meeting were they taught and Baptize one head of a certain Family and as a result we anticipate to start a new congregation in Ganaton very soon.
It is unbelievable that in the next two months, we are clocking two years since the opening of BVBI-Zambia. We can look back in these two years as a school and be encouraged that we did not just throw away the time. Students have not only grown in their age but they have also grown spiritually during the period they have been here. They have become better in their preaching and it is our prayer that they continue improving in this noble task even after they graduate. Training these men is indeed a worthy cause!!
These results would not have been possible without the constant and unvarying support of Woodland Oaks church of Church. We are truly grateful to them and we pray for the blessings upon everything they do.
The next class which will open in September will be a little bit larger compared to the one which will be graduating. Thank you once again for everything!
Cephas and Fred
