In This Edition

Southern Africa Bible College started its 53 year of equipping Christians for leadership in Southern Africa. With over 1,500 graduates sharing the Gospel around the world, we have high hopes for all the incoming First year students.

In this edition of the SABC E Newsletter, we share a short video interview with Wihlmont Valentine, a 2017 graduate of SABC. Like 80% of our graduates, Wihlmont works a full-time job while also working for a congregation. In this case, Wihlmont teaches high school Mathematics.

Also in this edition is a report on the Friends of SABC Mission Trip and Tour that spent 12 days serving in South Africa during March.

Finally, we have a list of items to keep in your prayers for SABC.

We still need to match our recent $20,000 matching donation. Any gift will help us educate more students like Wihlmont who will spread the Gospel in Southern Africa.

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
5) Experience

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.

Prayer List for 2019:

1) SABC Students who are sacrificing much to prepare for ministry.
