Last Sunday night many of our students joined with folks from two local churches to hold an outdoor prayer service in Forbes Park in the village of Hespeler. Heritage is part of an initiative called “Love Hespeler”. Our desire is to bring the love and light of Christ to the people living in Hespeler. This prayer gathering was a great way to start of our school year.
On Tuesday we had a wonderful Convocation service to dedicate the year to the Lord. Pastor Norm Millar challenged our students, staff, and faculty to remain “people of the Book” (2 Timothy 4:1-4). We a committed to being a school that builds all our education and training on God’s Word.
Here are some prayer requests for this week:
- New students are beginning to settle into the residence halls and their classes. Pray for their adjustment to the joys and rigours of life at Heritage. Ask God to make this a wonderful time of spiritual, academic and relational growth.
- Linda is preparing to co-teach a course with Dr. Margaret Kostenberger. The class runs next Friday and Saturday and is part of the Heritage Centre for Women in Ministry. Pray for Linda and Margaret as they prepare.
- This week, we were deeply saddened by the sudden death of our friend, Steve Baxter. Steve was a godly man and fantastic shepherd who pastored the church we attend (Grandview Baptist in Kitchener). Please pray for Steve’s family and the church family. We grieve, but with grieve with hope (1 Thess4:13), as we know Steve is with His Lord.
