Water!!!
At 340’ the well driller told us he had 1 1/2-2 gallons per minute. Not enough for two houses and barely enough for one. However, he planned to drill deeper for more reservoir and maybe more water. At 344’ he hit more water! 10 gallons per minute! Just what we had prayed for and what was needed to supply two houses! Praise the Lord!

New Staff,
Samuel and Jodie (Kooistra) Heatwole come to SMBI from Harrisonburg, VA. They have moved here to anchor the choir program and join the teaching staff. They served here third term 2019 and 2020 before deciding to make this their permanent residence. We are excited to have them join the team and move into the newly purchased house just a short distance behind the main campus.
Samuel grew up in Harrisburg and spent two years in service in Puerto Rico. He became fluent in Spanish which will bring a needed expertise to the choir and classroom. He also worked at Christian Light Publications beginning in the shipping department while he was still in high school. Upon returning from Puerto Rico he joined the homeschool department where he worked for 12 years, serving as supervisor the last five years. He also directed the Shenandoah Valley Chorus for six years.
Jodie was born in New York, grew up in Missouri, and lived in Indiana before moving to Virginia in 2010. She worked in the order department at CLP for 10 years, serving as administrative assistant to the supervisor for three years.
Samuel and Jodie were married in November, 2012. They both enjoy reading and traveling and have taken several international trips since their marriage. They also enjoy landscaping and have already touched up the lawn of the new property. They will be missed in Harrisonburg. Pray for them as they navigate this transition in their journey.

sharon mennonite bible institute introductionIntroduction to SMBI

The Lord of the church has given his body a variety of gifts and roles “for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ” (Eph. 4:12). This verse contains a three-fold directive for every born again follower of Christ.  As saints, we are called to move toward and into the ongoing work of sanctification and perfection in our own lives.  As Christ works in us, we become His hands and feet continuing the ministry of redemption which He initiated before mankind ever needed redemption.  Finally, since we are designed to function as a body and not an isolated ear or foot, we must band together as a body to build up and encourage our fellow pilgrims as we journey together.

At Sharon Mennonite Bible Institute it is our vision to function as a support to churches and families as together we endeavor to see these directives fulfilled in our lives and the lives of our students.   We have no desire to become another option in the smorgasbord of entertainment and diversion, but rather to be a dynamic tool that God can use to perform His work in and through each of us.  We appreciate your support as we strive to perfect the saints, equip them for ministry, and build up the body of Christ.
