It’s been quite a week for us in Cambridge. Like much of the province, we’ve had our share of winter weather; classes at Heritage had to be cancelled on Tuesday due to freezing rain and ice. In the midst of it all, the warmth of God’s love has been shining through. Linda and I hosted an Alpha Bible study in our home on Sunday evening. What a joy to see a number of these friends warm up spiritually and begin a new life with Christ. There is rejoicing in heaven and in our hearts.
I’ve also been greatly encouraged by our Heritage Board members. You may recall that Heritage has been carrying institutional debt for decades. Over the past few years, we’ve seen God’s amazing provision help us lower the debt. Where the debt was once over 3.5 million dollars, it has come down to $250,000. At our January Board meeting, the men and women on the Heritage Board of Directors made a faith commitment to completely demolish the remaining debt over the coming months. Through the generous gifts of these Board members and their contacts, we are moving closer to being debt free as a school. This will be a year of Jubilee!
Here are some prayer requests for the coming week.
- Linda speaks at a women’s gathering in Woodstock, Ontario this Saturday. Please pray that God would use her message on “love” to encourage and challenge the women who attend.
- Next week is Reading Week at Heritage. Students get a break from classes and have time to rest and catch up on their studies. Please pray that students would be refreshed and also make progress in their studies.
- Next week, Linda and I are traveling to a conference put on by ABHE (Association for Biblical Higher Education). Please pray for safe travels and a profitable time at this national conference.
- Ask the Lord to enable Heritage to finish eliminating the remaining debt. (If you would like to help us with this historic push to be debt free, you can donate here).
Thank you for your ongoing prayers and support. We greatly appreciate it.
