“And my God will supply all your needs
according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus”
We have been rejoicing all summer in good and hard times. In early July, the doctor noted a suspicious growth on one of my (Rick) kidneys. This week I received the doctor’s report from the CT scan. By God’s grace, everything is good. We count it a privilege to have life and have no greater honour than to be part of the mission God has given Heritage: “equipping men and women for life and ministry.”
Our student leadership team returned on Sunday for a week of training. On Labour Day, our new students move into the dorms. God “supplied all our needs” this summer with new mattresses for all our dorm rooms and some new treadmills for the fitness centre. A summer flood due to heavy rains required significant repairs which are nearly complete. A garden area and a new gazebo have been supplied for our students to have a quiet space outside their busy dorm rooms.
As we move into the new school year, we still have need of a few “back to school supplies”:
Prayer: Would you pray for our students as they come to campus? Boldly ask the Lord for revival and renewal in all our faculty, staff, and students. We were encouraged to hear of a Christian university where this renewal is taking place; would you pray God will work powerfully at Heritage as well? Pray for me (Rick) as I speak in chapel and teach preaching courses. Pray for Linda as she teaches a course on Women That Impact the World through Evangelism.
Grounds: We have a beautiful simple campus. The rain and sun were perfect for growing this summer. If you live locally, we have a need for a volunteer campus “refresh” team (weeding or painting touch ups). This would be a great way to help supply our needs.
Scholarships: We have students who would take courses for ministry if God supplied their needs. Would you consider partnering with us in the training of students for ministry? If you would like to donate towards our scholarship funds you can get more information here.
If you have further questions about how you could help with our “Back to School Supplies,” feel free to call us (519.651.2869) or e-mail.
Our goal: To see God supply, and to see a “profit increase to your account” (Phil 4:17). After all, we serve the God who supplies all our needs.
