Immediately following the graduation ceremony, we left on a three-day mission trip to Abian to minister to the young people, to have film showings and to edify the local church community. The trip was an excellent and memorable way for the recent graduates to put their faith into action to serve a community different than their own. We showed two films about Jesus' life and salvation through Jesus Christ, engaging both the young and adult populations. We even prayed the rain away on our second night of film showings. The rain threatened to shut us down, but in faith, we prayed that the skies would clear, and indeed, the stars came and shined brilliantly until the end of our event. God is good! On Saturday, we went door-to-door to reach out to people for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Many people prayed to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior. We were blessed to see open hearts receptive to the Gospel.
Sunday was reserved for fellowship with the local body of Christ. We worshipped together and considered the importance of putting Jesus first everyday, eating his flesh and drinking his blood (John 6:53), because man does not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God (Luke 4:4). Jesus is the bread of life (John 6:48) and the very Word of God that became flesh for us. How important it is for the body of Christ to spur one another one toward love and good works (Hebrews 10:24)! The 2012-2013 year was one of many changes and adjustments, but through each moment, God revealed his faithfulness to bring to completion that which he has begun. We look forward to the upcoming year and are praying for many more students to come and learn what God has planned for their lives.
