Praise & Prayer September 2010

Praise & Prayer 2010

Well we are overwhelmed …….. CCBI is no longer a virtual bible school, we have 14 real students, who actually breathe & eat, everything is new and overwhelming , but more than anything else we are overwhelmed by God’s grace and God’s faithfulness. This is a good thing ! – All praise be to Him who is glorious !!! Amen


Please join with us and thank the Lord

  • For God’s grace and provision as He has begun to establish the work of CCBI here in New Zealand
  • For bringing all the students safely here from all over the world , we currently have 5 New Zealand residents studying with us- Praise the Lord. Ollykene is from the island of Tuvalu in the South Pacific.
  • For God’s provision of visas for our staff to serve here, for Whitney, Josh, Jake & Tecla a huge blessing and provision.
  • For a smooth start to classes and teaching and pretty much everything.
  • For God’s kindness to us and help as we have taken on the responsibilities of cooking and feeding the students ourselves, rather than burden the ranch with this responsibility. I get to cook to as well as teach – very cool!
  • For a sense of purpose and unity in the student body already.


Please join with us and seek the Lord:

  • For Anointed teaching of the word.
    • That we wouldn’t be distracted from the spiritual focus with all the other things we have to do in order to serve the students.
  • For outreach week as we serve on an evangelistic kids camp @ Lakes ranch (October 3th- 8th)
  • For our outreach trip to Tonga in the South Pacific.
  • For our national leaders day conference to equip leaders with Bill & Joy Welsh of Refuge, Huntington Beach, California. (November 6th)
  • For anointing and energy as I teach the book of Genesis in 12 hours over four days to Capenwray bible school students on their South Island campus (November 1st -4th)
  • For God’s wisdom and provision as we look to set up our correspondence programme for those in the region who are unable to attend as full time students.
  • For our ongoing dicsussions with New Zealand Immigration regarding the ability to grant student visas

God bless and thank you so much for praying for us.

  1. Super news! It’s exciting to get your praise & prayer reports from your website. The South Pacific & NZ are on my heart, and CCBCNZ is a real answer to prayer for the region. Blessings on you and your family Mark, and all the folks there at the school. I will also be praying for your Tonga outreach.

    In Jesus,
