"He appointed twelve-designating them apostles-that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach and to have authority to drive out demons." (Mark 3:14,15)
From the beginning, UBF students realized that Jesus' command to make disciples of all nations was a command to all Christians. Students who have accepted Jesus Christ and studied the Bible faithfully throughout their college years establish their value systems according to the teachings of the Bible. God calls some to go as cross-cultural missionaires. Many students who have grown in their faith and commitment to Jesus prayerfully consider a mission field. As a laymen's missionary movement, UBF missionaries are financially self-supporting. Decisions to go out to pioneer must be solidly based on the guidance of the Holy Spirit as well as sound faith. Missionaries are prepared and trained Bible study, prayer, shepherding others, sermon preparation, mision field research, foreign language study, etc.
"The LORD had said to Abram, "Leave your country, your people and your father's household and go to the land I will show you. "I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing." (Genesis 12:1,2)
Greetings in Jesus. After hearing the news about the natural disaster caused by tsunami and earthquake and the following radioactivity, I wondered how the people of Japan could have the hope to live in the future.
Thank you for your prayer support for Sendai. Except for the center of the city and downtown Sendai, the areas which were near the sea were extremely damaged by the earthquake and tsunami. Nationwide, 47 million people who were evacuated are suffering due to a lack of food, water, and gas. In addition, because the transportation system was devastated, the relief supplies have not been able to transfer properly to the needy people. In fact, the government knew a natural disaster was coming and prepared the country, however, the problem was that the earthquake and tsunami were far beyond the expectation of the experts.
Canberra UBF's 1st Fellowship Leaders and Music Team
God has helped Canberra UBF to raise two fellowships in the new 2011 semester. Chuong (Medicine 3) & Sarah (RN Nurse) are fellowship leaders for True Vine Fellowship, and Chris (Arts 2) & Eva (Medicine 3) for Living Stone Fellowship. Hannah Jr. is a semi-leader and was appointed as a servant for the Daily Bread ministry. We pray that these leaders may be deeply rooted in God’s calling and grace, learning Jesus’ life, serving students with a shepherd heart, and growing as spiritual leaders in this generation. We started a Fellowship Leaders Bible Study and pray that God may fill M. Joshua with the Spirit of God’s words to lead it and that fellowship leaders may grow as excellent Bible teachers.
