This week, explain what you are learning in class and how you see it play out in your real-life experiences at your Impact placements.
This year I have been learning about how Jesus loved people who were otherwise hard to love, people that today's society would not like to be seen around. Jesus, with judgement from everyone around him, would talk and even touch them without the slightest worry about what the other people were thinking. Although this is not on the same level, for me it has been a huge learning curve to work with loud, sometimes dirty, 7 year-olds. I have learned a lot of patience and grace while working with them. I started out by acting like I loved the kids, and sooner rather than later I started to, surprisingly, love them for real!
Mount Carmel Bible College is a one year discipleship school in the city of Edmonton, Alberta. Combining college-level Bible courses with weekly volunteer work and regular ministry trips, Mount Carmel creates a unique, close-knit Christian community that encourages and supports personal transformation. At a total cost of less than $5500, our program includes local missions, retreats, and service as well as travel and adventure–students spend over a month together on the road. Ultimately our mission is to “disciple willing Christians to a deeper, more passionate commitment to God and others; expressed through increasing knowledge, love, and service”.
