Record Attendance at Recent SPNTC Classes

Metas studies a passage from the Bible with her small group.
Our SPNTC students love doing group projects

We praise the Lord that for the two SPNTC classes that were offered in August and September, we had more students attend than in the history of the school.  Pastor Peter Isaac taught Christian Music and Worship with 18 students completing the course.  We were thankful for the "old" hymnals that someone had sent to us several years ago. There were enough for each student!  They had a great time learning several of the hymns and presented "Blessed Assurance" at an all-Nazarene Church gathering after the class was completed.  One of the students commented that he had learned that worship wasn't something that just happens on Sunday, but is something that we should be doing every day of our lives!

Sylvia's class on Christian Morals and Ethics was a challenge for both teacher and students.  Twelve students completed the two week course where each day the students engaged in dialogue about various ethical issues such as marriage and divorce, traditional medicine and witchcraft, capital punishment and other topics that were current issues in Vanuatu.  One of the assignments was for each student to memorize and meditate upon Romans 12:2, "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect"  (NASB).  The class learned the hymn, "Take My Life and Let It Be Consecrated, Lord, to Thee" in English and Bislama and presented it at the monthly gathering of all the churches at the end of September.

William and his group present their project to the class.
Thank you to everyone who was praying for the teachers and students of these two classes.

Pastor Jenny Isaac will be teaching the next SPNTC course, Interpersonal Communications, October 25 - November 5.  Each of our courses is 35 contact hours, meeting 3 1/2 hours nightly for 2 weeks.  This is a very demanding schedule for both teacher and students.  Pray that God will give health and strength, and that the Holy Spirit will continue to complete the good work that God has begun in each one.
