While watching The Great Awakening on CTN last summer, I heard about the opportunity to apply for a scholarship at The River Bible Institute. I had a strong desire to apply because I knew God was calling me to full-time ministry. I love people and I always wanted to evangelize but I really didn’t know where to start.
I am so grateful that I received my scholarship and I started school on August 22, 2011. I have been blessed to begin my classes while The Great Awakening was broadcasting live every night Sunday through Friday. I have been stretched beyond my comfort zone in many ways and I have grown in the areas of the spirit, faith and knowledge of the Word of God.
At the beginning of the first semester, God did awesome changes in my heart through the many teachings on seedtime and harvest. I learned that everything we do is all about the condition of the heart. As I grew in this area of giving, my faith in God for my provision grew also. I have learned to trust him more than ever before to be my Jehovah Jireh.
The River Bible Institute has wonderful teachers and the Word of God has become more relevant, active and alive in my life. The combination of powerful teaching and preaching coupled with the hands-on ministry opportunities has speedily propelled my ability to win souls, pray for the sick, and minister to people effectively over the phone.
I am proud to be a student at The River Bible Institute, and I look forward to stepping up to the next level so I can learn how to win more souls for Christ.
