SOC Transforms Lives of High School Students by Richard Goebel

In November we traveled to La Paz, Bolivia, for a week of services and to graduate students that had completed the School of Christ. La Paz is the highest administrative capital in the world, resting on the Andes’ Altiplano plateau more than 11,975 ft. above sea level.

The people were very attentive to the Word of God, and after many of the services the people were seeking God, repenting, and worshiping at the altar for quite a while.

The students were so affected by the School of Christ. The graduation was wonderful with tremendous testimonies of what the Lord had done through the lessons of SOC. One brother said, “The School challenged in a way that my words cannot say. So much of what we have been doing in our churches is not Scriptural. This School has made Christ real to us.” Another brother, Joel said, “The lessons of this School have made us different people. It has affected our prayer and our study of God’s Word, and it is affecting our churches.”

While there I met a group of High School students that had attended a previous School. They had been so affected that they told others. During the services, these young people were rejoicing in the Word. They gathered around us after the services and wanted us to know that they had heard the lessons from the School of Christ, and that they were committed to following the Truth of God’s Word. They said that they are fasting and praying on the campus, they are witnessing on the streets, and they are praying with young people. They are believing God to send revival. There was a genuine love and hunger for God among these young people.

The pastors that we graduated, and other graduates from previous Schools that we met, were serious men of God. They spoke about the great work that lies before them of reaching their country with the message of Pentecost.

There is a great need to reach the indigenous population across the top of the Andes Mountains. These people live in almost complete isolation, and we are going to have to reach them. We had to travel two hours further north into these areas to see the people, the culture, and the great need. We must reach these areas with the Gospel while Christ gives us time. I ask that you please pray for Bolivia and the great and effectual work of the School of Christ.

I pray that this report will encourage you to give to the work of the School of Christ as we labor to go to the unreached, and preach Christ.

New Doors Open in Mongolia for SOC by Joel Pledge

Pastor Darkhan Mukhko listened to the School of Christ on MP3 in 2013. The Lord really touched his life and he was determined to attend a School when he could. In the spring of 2014 we held a School in the south of Mongolia. Even though Pastor Mukhko lives in the north he traveled by car across Mongolia to attend the School. He was stirred in his heart after each lesson and he knew he must bring the School of Christ to his city. In the fall of 2014 we held a School in Darkhan, Mongolia. He came and felt we should bring the School of Christ to Northeast Mongolia near the Russian border to the city of Sukhbaatar.

We saw the Lord move from the very first day of the School.  The students came from sixteen locations in Mongolia and the local people came to hear the lessons in their spare time. One woman testified that on the second day of the School she was freed from the habit of smoking and others testified of healings. Their lives were changed because of the true foundation taught by the School of Christ.

Every morning and evening during an hour of individual prayer, students fervently prayed to receive the revelation of what they had heard from the SOC lessons. One woman came to tell us that God had called her to go to China as a missionary to preach the Gospel to the Mongolians who live there.

Once again we saw the Lord bring life into the hearts of His people through the School of Christ. Leaders were filled with the power of the Holy Spirit and revived. They left to go back to their churches to bring revival to their people.

We have already finished the translation of the School of Christ into the Mongolian language. It is only in the electronic format now, but we are currently working on the written format.  The videos of SOC are available on YouTube in the Mongolian language for all to view. I have heard testimonies from Christians who have been blessed by viewing the SOC on the internet. Each student upon graduation was given a flash card and MP3 disk with the SOC teaching to take home with them.

Thank God for His work in Mongolia, so many lives have been touched by the School of Christ. We are seeing more doors open up for ministry.
