We help support the School of Biblical Studies in Jos, Nigeria. It has been and continues to be a very productive work in various countries in Africa and even other continents.

Several years ago, two students from Uganda attended the school in Jos, and upon their graduation, returned to Uganda to teach the gospel. Their work has been very successful. Several years ago, they sent other Ugandan Christians to the school in Jos to be trained as teachers so they could start their own School of Biblical Studies in Uganda. That school has now been in existence for about five years.

The brethren in Uganda wish to send two more men to the school in Jos, Nigeria to be trained to become new faculty members for the school in Uganda. There are two needs. The first is transportation for each man from Uganda to Jos. The cost of travel has risen substantially. The total cost for each man, one way will be $2000.

They will each remain at the school in Jos for four years to complete their education. The cost for each man will be $200 per month for their total school expenses. The cost of their education for the four years will be $9,600 per man.

Your continued generous contributions will already allow us to offer help to these men. But, we also know that some of you would like to help them above and beyond your contribution. If you wish to help beyond your normal contribution, you may make out your check to Riverchase Church of Christ and in the “memo” section of your check write “Uganda students.”

Let us know if you have any questions.

After God’s Own Heart

David, King of Israel, was described as a man after God’s own heart. I can imagine other biblical characters who would fall under the same category. What about us? Can we come close to that kind of heart? How did David get there? From his childhood he had a deep and...

Groundhog Day

14 And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth." And it was...

Provided

And he said, "Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD." (Job 1:21 ESV) Those words spoken by Job need to be pondered by all of us. We came into this world with nothing...

Some Wisdom for the Day

When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan. (Prov. 29:2 ESV) One's pride will bring him low, but he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor. (Prov. 29:23 ESV) Scoffers set a city aflame, but the wise turn away wrath....

In Him

In Christ we have every spiritual blessing heaven has to offer. It was God’s choice even before he created the world to choose those who are in Christ to be his chosen people. In Christ we are considered holy and blameless before God. In Christ we are adopted as God’s...

It Is Written

It may have been about 2005 when we moved into our current subdivision. Our house was one of the first houses built in our area of the subdivision. I’m not trying to offer that as an excuse for what happened, but then again, I may be. Entering our subdivision the...

Out With the Old, In With the New

A common slogan as we bring to an end the current year and look with anticipation to the coming new year. A slogan good for the passing of a year that is ending, but not good for everything. There is no “new” word of God. There is the word of God. That word is still...

Some Things Change, Some Don’t

We headed South to spend a couple of days with our vacationing grandchildren and their parents. On the way, our GPS kept giving me directions toward our destination. It kept saying, “Go toward Mobile”. It kept pronouncing it “Mo-bull” instead of “Mo-bill”. I wondered...

What’s Your Custom?

What are your habits of life? How would your family describe your customs? Twice in the New Testament the phrase is used, “as was his custom,” in reference to Jesus. In Mark 10:1 it is used to refer to his custom of teaching the people. In Luke 4:16, his going to the...

Follow Me

From time to time I will see trucks with a “Follow Me” sign on their tailgate. As a matter of fact, I followed one just last week who was directing traffic around the construction of a new bridge in our area. I understood where he was leading me. When I see a truck...
