Set your hope fully on the grace… Holsby 2013-14

by Luke Thomas - Bible School Principal

A few weeks ago we welcomed 62 students from 10 countries to Holsby Bible School 2013-14. Here is a short video, put together by the guy’s RA, Stephen Reith, capturing the highlights of this year – our students.

It’s great to see and hear this place filled again with young men and women who have come to study God’s Word and deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ. The theme for this year is “experiencing in part what one day we will experience in full,” based on 1 Peter 1:13: “Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” As we look to that grace that will one day complete God’s work of salvation in our lives, we trust it will begin to express itself now as Jesus gradually changes our lives to reflect Him.

Please continue to pray for all of us as we seek to faithfully serve the Lord and His purposes here at Holsby.

About Luke Thomas - Bible School Principal

One of my favorite words when thinking about the Christian journey is the word “discovery.” When departing every moment of every day in dependence on Jesus Christ, one discovers a worthwhile adventure that defines authentic Christianity. The gospel saves us and the gospel grows us, and that is what excites me about life and what takes place on a daily basis at Holsby in the lives of students, staff, and guests. The Lord has blessed me to enjoy this journey with my wonderful wife Cheryl and our and our children Emmalise, Ember and Hudson. I met Cheryl while serving as an English teacher in Mongolia, where we then spent our first year of marriage and later returned to her home in southern Kansas to work on the family farm. I grew up in Colorado at a Torchbearer school by the name of Ravencrest, which instilled in me a love for the Torchbearers ministry that has now led us to Holsby. On our irresponsible days we enjoy about anything related to sports and the outdoors. I particularly enjoy a good soccer game, being on a mountain trail, catching up on a good book at the café, or any type of casual time with friends and family. I also enjoy an occasional blow on the bagpipes when there is an eager ear to hear.
