“…and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” (Col 3:10)
Thanks and praise be to God who blessed our 2017 SBC so abundantly! The six chapters in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area), together with Hamilton and London held a joint SBC on July 28-30, at Upper Canada Camp, located about one hour’s driving distance from Toronto, Hamilton and London. Ottawa and Rideau chapters also joined us, and 2 guests from Vancouver and 4 from UIC, Chicago, participated, as well. Altogether, 157 people attended.
“Thank you for your prayers and love for our family. We miss him very much. We thank God for his faithfulness to serve the Lord and people around him. We thank God that he lived *a serving life as a layman and a hidden servant. We thank God that he left a precious legacy to all who know him” (Isaac and Rebekah Kim).
A mission team of 10 youths came and from July 27th began to serve children's Village Bible Study, located about 45 miles away from Belize City, called Camalita, Orangewalk. 65 children gathered. Their mission team delivered a well prepared message about God's creation. They had learned that some children came from family of domestic violence, some even sexually abused, some from traditional witchcraft family.
From Friday, July 28 through Sunday, July 30, Minneapolis UBF held our 2017 Summer Bible Conference with the theme “The Father’s Heart.” We prayed that God would bless each of our attendants to learn God’s heart and love, develop a deeper fellowship with him, and grow as his mature children so that we might love each other and serve campus students and the world. Accepting our co-workers’ prayers and devotion, God abundantly blessed our conference with 35 attendants including three guests from Chicago and two from Triton UBF.
