Tuesday Chapel

SAMSUNG            We have started the semester with several great chapels already and yesterday’s chapel continued that flow. Bill Schuit, the Global Ministries Director for Liebenzell Mission USA and PIU Board member, was our speaker. Bill began by challenging us with stories from his travels about believers around the world in very difficult situations. He talked of missionaries in Asia who have to spend years building relationships with the people before they can openly share the Gospel, believers in Bangladesh and Nigeria who face persecution and others who are so thankful to God even though they have so little. SAMSUNG            He challenged the PIU family to be thankful and take advantage of the opportunity to be in a community like PIU where they can study God’s Word and be trained for ministry. He challenged us to focus on the promise and power of God rather than the barriers we see in front of us. He mentioned the special calling of John the Baptist and reminded us that called people often need to have a “desert experience” before they really get to what God has called them to do. I think it was very encouraging to everyone. Of course we invite the whole community to join us on Tuesdays and Fridays in the main classroom at 11.00 AM for chapel. It is always a blessing.
