WBI strives to meet a need that often goes unmet: access to Christian leadership education for those who are unable to uproot themselves to attend a school of preaching or similar institution. Our online programs allow established individuals an opportunity to enhance their ability to strengthen their local congregation. Here is a snippet from an email I recently received from a brother in India. It is a great example of how our programs are able to reach those who are already established in an area and active in their local church.
“From the beginning, I mean the day of my Baptism I am doing Lord’s Work without any financial support from any congregation or any other person in India or Abroad. […] I have commenced a Special Bible class in our Place. I have been conducting a Bible Class on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday in the Evening 8.00 pm. to 9.30 pm. Six Brothers and a Sister are Studying in my Class. […] Brother I did not study bible in a Regular Bible School or College. I am taking class by my many years of working Experience in the Lord’s Church. Now I am studying many Articles and books for my Lesson Preparation.
So, I want to study more about the word of God. I believe that your courses and your guidance will be very helpful to my spiritual growth and my students. I am teaching lessons in our mother tongue Tamil. I would like to translate it into English soon”.
This man is now studying with WBI. Through his efforts the Gospel is being shared in his local tongue, and by the grace of God WBI is privileged to share in this brother’s work.
