NEWS FROM THE HUB BIBLE SCHOOL 04/29/2013

Dear brothers, sisters and friends,

P1010308This week, life at HUB is back to its normal course. After week one, where we had a number of guests from Serbia and America, in week two there are only our students and the HUB team left.

A teacher from Scotland, Howel Jones joined us. He visited us with his wife Anne this time. Howel always teaches in a unique and special way, this time I and II Chronicles. Howel has been with us from the very beginnings of the school’s work and is a huge support and encouragement for the students and all of us.

Also, Andy Mayo was with us last week. He taught the epistle to Colossians. It is always special time for the students when Andy is here, because he spends much time with the students even outside the classes. Andy is well known for always encouraging our students, praying with them, playing the guitar for them…

We are so grateful to Howel, Anne and Andy for all the time they have given to us and our students this week. God has blessed us so much through them.

The practical day and visit to church

For the practical day, we went with the students to Pancevo to a youth meeting. Our students served the youth through songs, testimonies and the Word of God. On Sunday, we were also at a service, at a very small church where our former students Igor and Anita Urosevic P1010672are, who founded the church. We had a very blessed time. We were so encouraged by their desire to sing the songs of praise to the Lord. We were especially blessed by seeing that the members of this church enjoyed our visit too, and that they want to see us again soon.

As the end of the school year is approaching, our students are starting to think about their future plans, while we are thinking about the preparations for the next school year. One of our students, Simonce Misev, shared with us his impressions about his studies so far and his future plans:

»When I first came to the Bible school, I came with a goal to get closer to God and get to know him better. God has been truly revealing himself to me through lectures, changing my life through the relationships with the other students and speaking to me daily. He has been teaching me how to serve him in humility and that everything I do, I should be doing to God’s glory. My desire and prayer for the future is to work with the people who are in drug problems, and also share the gospel with them. For the start, I would like to finish the second year of the Bible school, which I believe would help my edification and practical preparation for further ministry.«

Please pray for the generation that finishes, for God to reveal them where he wants them to serve him. Also, please pray for the new students, for God to give them the desire at the right time to come and study the Word of God.

Thank you so much for supporting us and for being a part of our ministry.

VESTI IZ HUB-a BIBLIJSKE ŠKOLE ZA 29.04.2013.

Draga braćo, sestre i prijatelji,

 P1010308

Život u HUB-u ove nedelje vratio se u uobičajeni tok. Nakon prve nedelje, u kojoj smo imali veliki broj gostiju iz Srbije i Amerike, u drugoj nedelji ostali su samo naši studenti i tim HUB-a.

Pridružio nam se predavač iz Škotske Hauel Džons, koji nam je bio u poseti sa svojom suprugom En i koji je na uvek jedinstven i poseban način predavao knjige Prva i Druga Dnevnika. Hauel je sa nama od samog početka rada škole i velika je podrška i ohrabrenje za studente i sve nas.

Takođe je sa nama ove nedelje bio Endi Mejo, koji je predavao poslanicu Kološanima. Za studente je uvek posebno vreme kada Endi dođe u školu, jer on i pored predavanja provodi mnogo vremena sa studentima. Endi je poznat po tome što uvek ohrabruje naše studente, moli se sa njima, svira gitaru…

Zahvalni smo mnogo Hauelu, En i Endiju za vreme koje su odvojili za nas i naše studente ove nedelje. Bog nas je veoma blagoslovio kroz njih.

Praktičan dan i poseta crkvi

Za praktičan dan smo išli sa studentima u Pančevo na omladinski sastanak. Naši studenti su služili kroz pesme, svedočanstva i Božiju Reč.

P1010672

 U nedelju smo takođe bili na jednom bogosluženju, u jednoj veoma maloj crkvi kod naših bivših studenata Igora i Anite Uroševića, koji su osnovali tu crkvu. Imali smo veoma blagoslovljeno vreme. Bili smo baš ohrabreni njihovom željom da pevaju pesme slavljenja Boga. Posebno smo blagosloveni što vidimo i da su članovi ove crkve uživali i što žele da nas vide ponovo uskoro.

Dok se bliži kraj školske godine, naši studenti počinju da razmišljaju o svojim budućim planovima, a mi o pripremama za sledeću školsku godinu. Jedan od naših studenata, Simonče Mišev, podelio je sa nama svoje utiske o dosadašnjem školovanju i budućim planovima:

»Kad sam došao u Biblijsku školu, došao sam sa ciljem da se približim Bogu i da ga bolje upoznam. Zaista mi se Bog otkrivao kroz predavanja, menjao mi život kroz odnose sa drugim studentima i govorio mi svakodnevno. Učio me je kako da mu služim u poniznosti i da sve što radim, radim na njegovu slavu. Moja želja i molitva za dalje jeste da radim sa ljudima koji imaju problem sa drogom i da im govorim evanđelje. Voleo bih za početak da završim i drugu godinu Biblijske škole, za koju verujem da će mi takođe biti na izgradnju i praktičnu pripremu za dalju službu.«

 

Molite se za ovu generaciju koja završava, da im Bog otkriva gde žele da mu služe. Takođe, molimo vas da se molite i za nove studente, da im Bog da želju da u pravo vreme dođu i studiraju Božiju Reč.

Hvala vam mnogo što nas podržavate i što ste deo naše službe.

Riste i tim HUB-a
