“Three Wise Men from the East”
That’s how, Rev. John Angle, Bethlehem Bible College’s respresentative in the UK, described the trip of three BBC faculty and staff to England at the beginning of January.
After being invited to a conference in Oxford, England, Dr. Bishara Awad, President Emeritus of BBC, Rev. Alex Awad, Dean of Students at BBC and director of the Shepherd Society, and Dr. Yohanna Katanacho, BBC’s Academic Dean traveled throughout England to meet with supporters and introduce new faces to the work of Bethlehem Bible College.
Their trip, during the Epiphany season, included speaking engagements and meetings at several churches in Cardiff, Bath, Bristol, and London, as well as the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES) and the Baptist Missionary Society.
Supporting Student Training
The “Three Wise Men” spoke to over 1000 people and encouraged much financial and prayer support for BBC’s work in student training. “We were excited to see many people touched by BBC’s mission and are energized to strengthen our work of training students with the help of many new supporters,” Rev. John Angle affirmed.
In England, Dr. Awad, Rev. Awad, and Dr. Katanacho met up with Munther Isaac, Vice Academic Dean at BBC who is a PhD candidate at the Oxford Center for Mission Studies. In addition to raising support for BBC, they also spoke about the situation of Palestinian Christians in the Holy Land. One responder said: “They had a great impact on my viewpoint of the Christian situation in Israel and Palestine.”
