It’s finals week at Heritage, the grand finale of the fall semester. Students are pushing hard to finish well. Today I saw one student in the cafeteria reviewing his Hebrew vocabulary cards as he ate lunch; the Hebrew exam was at 1:00 pm and he was using every nanosecond to prepare.
I’ve been teaching homiletics (preaching) this semester and our final class is Thursday afternoon. What a delight it’s been to see students become more competent and confident in communicating God’s Word. I believe God is raising up some fine preachers and teachers for His Church.
Linda spent today grading assignments for a course she taught this semester on “Women Impacting the World Through Evangelism.” As the final project in the course, each woman had to plan and carry out a Christmas outreach event where the good news of Christ’s coming was presented. While they all faced serious challenges, each woman accomplished the mission. Lives were changed as a result.
The longer I’m at Heritage, the more convinced I am that this school has an important part to play in work of Christ in Canada. We are training men and women for life and ministry. We are equipping pastors, missionaries and church leaders. Our graduates are serving Christ across Canada and around the world.
I would ask you to continue to pray for us. Ask the Lord to strengthen and sustain us as we finish finals week and prepare for ministry in the New Year. Thank you for your interest in us and the ministry of Heritage.
