Friends of SABC Trip 2019
There were five goals for the 2019 trip. They were as follows:
1) Encourage the Church.
2) Learn more about the college and its impact
3)Teach Bible teachers of all ages
4) Serve the college through physical labor
Thirteen people left for South Africa on March 7 and return on March 19. They were, Philip Bailey, Charris Powers, Jonathon Montgomery, and Kirk and Christie Eason from the Memorial Church of Christ in Houston, Texas. Andrew and Amy LaMore from the Pleasanton Church of Christ in Pleasanton, Texas; Diane Walls from the McArthur Park Church of Christ in San Antonio, Texas; Sharon Jackson, Luther and Evelyn Baker from the East Side Church of Christ in Austin, Texas; and Luke Carter from the Nampa Church of Christ in Nampa, Idaho.
To accomplish the first two goals we lived on campus with the students, visited with graduates, and attended congregations where our graduates lead. We interacted with them and learned about their lives, goals, and plans for future service.
The first Saturday we were there we held a Bible teachers' workshop in conjunction with the college. Over 120 people from area congregations attended. Classes were offered that helped teachers of cradle roll up through men and women.
We also provided service that only a large group could do. Some worked in the library to help organize while others prepped surfaces to be painted. This was a great benefit to the college and helped speed up some long-term goals.
Finally, to experience the beauty of South Africa we went on an overnight safari and to the top of Table Mountain in Cape Town.
The trip was a great encouragement to the staff, students, and alumni of SABC and to the group who went. We are already making plans for next year's trip. Contact me for more information. Space is limited.
