WATER 2020 Canceled
With 46 students preparing to come from 10 states, 2 provinces, and Belize and planning to spread out across 14 countries on 5 continents and central America, we were left with little choice but to cancel this year's WATER program in the face of COVID-19. It was shaping up to be an excellent year and it is with great disappointment to all that this decision was made. Pray for these students as they find new ways to continue their journey and invest in the kingdom of God. Pray for the mission staff spread around the world as they navigate these uncertain times and unusual circumstances.

Two Weeks-
Today, April 17, marks two weeks since the fourth term students left campus. We are grateful that there have been no reports of virus related illness among those who were here. Praise God for granting those days together as the outbreak intensified and for the teachable moments. Praise Him for the health protection He provided on campus and in their travels home. Pray for the students as they adjust to a new world and pray for those students who had planned to be here for fifth term. May God minister to your needs today! He is Good!

Most of the students and staff left on Thurs, with a few leaving on Friday for various reasons. All arrived safely and without challenges in regard to being on the highway. Those who returned to Canada are undergoing a mandatory 14-day quarantine. On Saturday, the day after everyone left for home, Fulton County (our county) reported its first case of COVID-19. We had been one of three virus free counties in PA. Coincidence? Pray for all as they adjust to a new normal in an abnormal world.

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.
