SOUTHERN INSTITUTE OF BIBLICAL STUDIES (SIBS), ACCRA
The students are happy so also our instructors. Their praise to the Lord is that our God is mighty, good and loving kindness Who protects and provides our needs all times. We had never lacked either closed door to our prayer in request and thanks given. May His name be GLORIFY!
Our supplication to the Lord is that you shall never lack in times of need. May the Lord restore in abundance all your endeavors to put the school into good shape, seeking that the work is done and the truth is told.
COMPLETION OF SCHOOL AND GRATITUDE – 2nd Batch
18th December, 2017, as written on the upper corner of the Formica board by the students of SIBS, Accra, “7 Days More” has come to pass.
The students are greatly happy for the completion of their Diploma in Biblical Studies. With much temptation and struggles in their two-year stay on campus, the fruit of their lips is that “we thank you for your love, free tuition, accommodation, feeding, study materials, internet, and above all instructing them in the way of God through encouragement and exhortation.
The students appreciate the staff, especially brothers Keith Kasarjian and Steven Ashcraft; the school directors, brothers Seth Osae Larbi and Emmanuel Odeng Larbi; the instructors, brothers Kojo Acquah Beenyi, Yaw Amoo-Gyimah, Kwabena Gyan-Mante, Jonathan Obeng Agyeapong; the cook, sister Christiana Adziaka and the Administration for being with us in spirit and in love.
We are grateful for the presents, visit, and donation from the brethren.
THE FAREWEL MESSAGE BY THE STAFF
On Thursday, 14th December, 2017, was the last day for a visit to the students for their departure. Having stood up on behave of the staff, Brother Seth Osae Larbi, gave the students a farewell message.
His message was about our preparation for the field work and not just a mere completion but to fulfill our mission on this earth as preachers of the gospel.
Having done with the message he blessed us and with word of prayer. With a hand shake we salute each other.
Brother Emmanuel Odeng Larbi presented Willmington’s Bible Handbook and Ministering Ethics to each student being what he has for our further study and research work.
This was our 4th campaign held on 4th – 10th December, 2017 at the township of Obeyeyie, Amasaman-Accra. In unify body: the current students, some of the past students and other preachers propagate the gospel for a week.
Minor challenges: Muslims and other traditional faith believers have dominated the area, yet with the help of God we had in all 8 converts, 7 new Christians and an old member who has just arrived in the town. Out of this effort we establish the church in this area with many of our contacts promising to come back. We were much grateful to the Lord for the wonderful things He has done.
NEW SCHOOL YEAR
The new year for the school, being our third batch of students is beginning on January 22, 2018. We have so far interviewed fourteen students and hopefully all would come to school come January 22.
As we beginning our new year, we wish you Happy New Year, praying that much good will be done and accomplished.
