In this Newsletter:

I hope you are doing well and having a great Holiday season! We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my family and, as is our tradition, celebrated Christmas with the grandkids during Thanksgiving. So we are finished with the shopping and gift giving. What are we going to do with the next 25 days?

Things at SABC are winding down and they are getting ready for Christmas and the summer break. Not sure how I would feel having Christmas in 90 degree weather.

In this newsletter there is a prayer list, a student video, and information about a special fundraising effort we are undertaking. Your participation in these things will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you for your time, prayers, and financial support of the Southern Africa Bible College.

Prayer List:

* Students who just finished their SABC program and are looking for work or beginning their first ministry position.
* The safety of faculty and staff as they go through the summer holidays and prepare for a new term in February.
*Students who are going home for the holidays and will be preaching, evangelizing and leading at their home congregations.
* Donors in both the US and South Africa as they consider end of year support for the college.

Special Fundraising Effort

Our CEO recently informed us some urgent needs: dramatically rising electric costs, and facilities repairs/updates. To address each of these issues, he has requested the following:
Initial facility repair and update estimates include:
Increase in monthly draw from the States (7 months)                     $21,000
Roof repair                                                                                         15,000
Electric security repair                                                                          5,000
Measures to reduce dependency on grid                                           19,000
Total                                                                                                  $60,000
This amount is in addition to the regular support we send to South Africa. This represents the first time in 5 years that the college leadership has made a special request for funds sent from the States. In the past they have been able to handle these special needs as they arose by raising the funds in South Africa. With the country now in recession, it proved to be more than they could do on their own this time.
Would you consider making an end of year donation in 2018 to help cover these expenses? We have currently raised over $25,000 for this effort.

You may send a check to SABC, 900 Echo Lane, Houston, TX 77024 or you may give online using a credit card by clicking the "Donate Now" button below. Every gift helps. Thank you.
