“…we are, in God, the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved…”
The graduation of the residents of NW Bible Training Center which has been held at Lake Bible Church for the past fourteen years has fallen prey to the coronavirus. Another of its cancellation casualties it has been truncated to a facebook farewell ceremony. Couple this with Clackamas County’s closure of the dormitory and worship center of the “Center” and you would think this would be the end. But…it is not! The residents are still there and teaching of the Bible goes on every week.
Jim Thwing, who teaches each week, has made the 50-mile round trip during the onset of the Corona Virus crisis and is in the 55th chapter of Isaiah having just completed it on Wednesday of this week! He reports that the residents and staff are persevering especially with the support of Lake Bible Church. By now, “they know what it means to exclusively Trust in Jesus!”
Our Lord always makes lemonade out of lemons and NW Bible Training Center is experiencing this for sure. Please keep the “Center” in your daily prayers. Pray that the Lord would be glorified by the great patience and loving kindness shown by the leadership of NW Bible Training Center and would reveal a great victory demonstrating His Sovereign Power and Grace!
