Sunday, 5th: WHAT ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS YOU HAVE LEARNED IN THIS COURSE? Here is Patrice L…’s response after completing the Practical Christian Living course: “I have learned to value the love of friendship and how the love of money is destructive. I’ve learned the lesson of how to have a happy Christian life which is saying God is sovereign in all my circumstances. This course has helped me so much.” (She began to study as a homeless shelter resident in 2017. In February 2022, she gave us her new personal address. PTL!) Praise God – “For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. By craving it, some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows” (1 Tim. 6:10)! Pray Patrice shares her faith.

Tuesday, 7th: WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU HAVE LEARNED IN THIS LESSON? Andrea S… (age 33) wrote: “That we can die two deaths, the physical and spiritual, but God wants us all to think about Jesus because He wants to be our friend. God makes everything work in His favor. He never messes up with His believers who love Him.

Thursday, 9th: WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU HAVE LEARNED IN THIS LESSON? Paul W… (age 58) wrote: “That baptism does not save or help save anyone. It is for those who are already saved. I failed to understand this until I read this Bible study. Thank the Lord!” (As a 14-month-old born again believer, he is studying My New Life In Christ course.) Praise God – “Those who embraced his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to the believers that day.” (Acts 2:41)! Pray Paul encourages family, friends and neighbors to study the Bible.

Friday, 10th: On 10/31/23 Tina J… returned her study worksheets and shared a prayer concern: “My husband has been going through a lot and has been having procedures done for his heart and esophagus.” Praise God – “I cry to You, O LORD: “You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.”” (Psalm 142:5)!

Would you be interested in helping me buy a $325 TV? I have $100 saved.” Praise God – “But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a few find it.” (Matthew 7:14)! Pray Anthony keeps studying; pray he starts a study in his pod with interested cellmates.
