What a year! This past year
serving the Lord in Flagstaff, Arizona has seen many things take place. But
through it all, God is good!
The year started on a tragic note
as one of our freshmen students took her own life on campus. This was a
difficult time for all of us. After that tragedy it took a while for Indian
Bible College to get back to what might be called “normal.” But we all made it
through the semester, hoping that the second semester would be better.
It was. We tried something new by
starting the second semester a week later. This gave us the chance to offer two
one-week block classes over the winter break instead of only one. This worked
out very well, and it allowed IBC to finish a week later so that our graduation
did not fall on the same day as the local university (Northern Arizona
University). We had an excellent Missions Conference that challenged us to pray
for the Muslims around the world. The students went to California for their
Mission Immersion Trip and ministered to the Soboba tribe.
For Graduation we were blessed to
have four (4) Bachelor Graduates (the most in a long time), plus graduates in
our Associates, Bible Certificate, and Christian Ministry Certificate Programs
as well. It was quite the time of celebration. We were also able to produce our
very first journal of student work, which has been a dream for quite some time!
You are a
part of all of this! By partnering with us in prayer and regular financial support
you are touching the lives of these students and making an eternal impact!
At home we are all busy: Dawn continues
to homeschool Hannah, Rebecca will be attending Bible college in the fall, and
Joshua is working in the IT field. We also continue to serve and minister at
Calvary Bible Church (Kevin preaching and teaching, Dawn teaching Sunday
School, and Joshua playing the keyboard).
Thank You for giving to the Lord!
May God continue bless you richly!
