Bible Correspondence Courses: We want to thank Joyce Hall, Oleta Ferrell, Lorraine Meier, JL & Florence Smith for helping with the Bible Correspondence courses over the last quarter.
- 3rd Quarter Stats: We mailed out 871 lessons and issued 32 certificates to 98 students (7 are online and 20 are prisoners)
Here are some comments we received from people that are taking the correspondence courses:
- A prisoner in Iowa writes: “Through Christ I am a new person in Him. I am grateful I have these lessons to do.”
- A prisoner in Maryland writes: I really like how this is written, even if someone didn’t believe, you have stated very logically Who Jesus really is. Thank you for the list of the ten commandments, sometimes I forget what they all are!
- A prisoner in Nebraska writes: Thank you for my lessons. I think about a Christian who is growing in the faith of our Lord and how the temptations get stronger and stronger as we grow more spiritually in God’s Word. It is so sad to see our world changing into hate and war.
I want to thank you so much for sending me The Need and Procedure for Change and How to Memorize Scripture by Evangelist Ron Hood. Our hand represents the different ways in which we can grip and hold on to the sword of the spirit, God’s Word.
Thank you, I hope and pray that my lessons find you. I pray God will continue to give you the strength every day to grade all of our homework. I pray He will continue to bless you and your family every day and keep you all safe. God bless.
