A gift has been defined as something that is willingly given to someone. God has certainly given us many gifts here at Ambassador Baptist College during 2018. He has given us new faculty and staff members who have a strong burden for training men and women for ministry. He has raised up young men and women who are serious about the ministry to join our student body. Every person in our college family is a gift from God.
Recently, I was speaking with the father of one of our students who was visiting the campus. During the course of our conversation, he told me, “My son is a different man compared to when he first came to ABC.” He continued to share with me how his son has grown and matured in the Lord. This father’s delight was a gift from God. Every life at Ambassador that is transformed by the Word of God is a gift.
In a season where the giving of gifts is commonplace, let us never forget the greatest gift given to men, the Lord Jesus Christ. His death on the cross enabled us to receive “the gift of eternal life” found in Romans 6:23. My prayer is that our students will share the news of this gift around the world in the years to come.
In years past, ABC has been dependent upon the gifts of friends like you to accomplish the work of training men and women for the ministry. This year is no exception. As we end 2018, we find ourselves in need of some special help due to unexpected expenses and lower income in the latter half of the year.
To finish the year in the black and to be ready to start the spring semester, we are praying that God will provide $100,000 in the final weeks of the year. Our students have labored to pay their school bills, our staff has been diligent in their stewardship of the college finances, and we are trusting the Lord to provide for our needs.
Would you pray about a gift to help us in the closing days of this year? All gifts are tax-deductible and will be used to help us in our mission of training young people for the ministry. You may give online right here, or you may send a gift to the college.
I pray that you and your family will have a wonderful Christmas season as you celebrate the One who is Wonderful, Counsellor, and the Prince of Peace (Is. 9:6). Thank you for your prayers and support for ABC.
An ambassador for Christ,
