We are very excited about the Bible Education Centre in Tembisa at the Aphiwe Good News Centre. In the beginning of this year, we received our teardrop banners and wallpaper for the BEC. The wallpaper is a timeline of the Bible, which helps Bible course and Sunday School students to know where various events happened in the Bible. We also painted the inside of the shop with some Bible verses to make it look more inviting and alive.
Outside we painted the wall a different color to the rest of the building to draw attention. We also painted thought clouds where we write different Bible questions for people passing by to read and think about. The teardrop banners are bright red and draw lots of attention and now people also know what exactly is at the Centre.
We held a big sale on Valentines day at the BEC, we sold a couple of books and Bibles, but what was really amazing was the whole Youth group from Aphiwe church came and together with Hendri and myself, we spoke to people walking past the centre about our free Bible courses, we signed up 42 new people on the course that day. We did the same on the following two Saturdays with Lucas and Leona and signed up another 20 people on the Gods Master Plan Course.
We have regular Bible classes on Fridays at Aphiwe and all new students on the courses are invited to those Bible classes and also to our Sunday morning meetings.
