Durban BEC graduation

Saturday was an Amazing day! We hosted a BEC graduation in Durban and about 30 students showed up with Family and Friends to receive their certificates for the classes they had completed. The graduates and their guests enjoyed a motivational Bible talk by Barry Van Heerden and shared a tea and cake fellowship directly after the ceremony. But wait, we aren't done yet ;-)! There are an additional 60 certificates that haven't been handed out because some graduates were not able to attend. Many of these students will come in to the BEC to receive their certificate. This will provide more great opportunities to share their successes and encourage them on to greater studies and additional correspondence courses. It is absolutely amazing to go through this journey with these students as we study the Bible together and come to learn the promises and hope that are written in the pages of God's Word! It is also SO inspiring to see the excitement that these students have when they begin discovering that the truth of God's word is something they can connect with and that is within their ability to understand.

There's very little that compares with the enthusiasm of a new student, especially one that has counted themselves as "Christian" most of their lives, who begin the correspondence courses and have the Word of God come to life for themselves!

Praise God!
