On August 24 the book shelves arrived on the GBC campus and three days later were fully assembled. For the next six days the faculty, staff and seniors worked tirelessly until midnight to shelve the books. We are so excited to share this news with you, our Indigenous Ministries Family! We want to express our deepest appreciation to so many who have donated books, prayed and given financially to this building and project. Thank you to all who sorted and catalogued 20,000+ books in Red Bluff, California last January. Want to see it for yourself? Join us in India, February, 2019. Call our office more information. We praise God for his blessing and provision for this amazing resource which is now available to the students, faculty, staff and local pastors.
Even after a full day of Biblical studies, chapel, study hall and meals together, each evening the men gather in front of their dorms outside for a time of praise and worship. Three miles away the women get together in their apartment for a nightly Bible study led by Gloria.
Your prayers for these young people make a difference. Pray for their ability to understand English, because most are from villages where they only use English occasionally. Pray for their adjustment to life on campus, for strength, courage and stamina. Pray for their new friendships and a deepening relationship with God.
There are 19 students waiting for a sponsor. Would you pray about helping one of these young scholars earn a quality Biblical education? Most will enter full time ministry, the rest are looking to be teachers, nurses or work in business and use their education at GBC as a solid foundation for their lives. Each month we hear from several GBC alumni who check in on social media sharing their ministry or business and how they are sharing Christ within their circles.
A full sponsorship is $100/month. Choose a full or partial sponsorship – any monthly amount helps! You’ll receive a profile card of your student; we encourage you to pray for and communicate with your student. If you’re already one of our amazing, faithful sponsors (we have the BEST sponsors!) – thank you!! To sponsor now, click here and in several minutes you’ll be all set. You can also call our office.
