For those in school or teaching at school, we especially look forward to Christmas break. After a long hard semester or trimester, we finally have an extended break and we get to be with family and friends to celebrate the gift of Jesus. The students and teachers of Antioch Bible Institute are no different.
Our trimester finished on December 18th with a Christmas party attended by the church president, the chairman of the school board, our builder and other special guests. It was a fun and encouraging time celebrating together. Some of the students shared what God has done and is doing in their lives. One of the students talked about his life before Antioch school and all the trouble he got into. Then he said his life at the school has been a “new life” and that this is the life that he wants. But he is afraid that as he heads home and back into a place of many temptations, he will fall back into his old life. Pray for this student (and all the students) to stand in the strength that God gives and to not only stand, but be a witness of Jesus among his family and friends.
Continue to also pray with us for another teacher couple – as this is our biggest need right now.
May you find joy and peace in the time of rest, reflection and celebration that the Christmas season brings.
