New York Campus Update

from the outside walls in. You really should consider visiting sometime and check out your old dorm! You won’t believe the changes. We have fully remodeled the Stu Page Administration Building and renamed it the Page Center for Student Success, as both Stu and Bette Page were instrumental in the foundation and growth of Word of Life Bible Institute. The Ryrie Library and Study Building was refreshed with new siding and landscaping. As I previously stated, we are committed to the process of teaching students the Word of God and how to apply it to their lives. All of these campus changes are for God’s glory and their spiritual development. I am humbled by His blessing and the growth we have seen in this class throughout the past few months. Would you pray that we continue to experience a healthy, spiritually vibrant, and growing campus? Maybe you know a student who would benefit from studying the Word of God. Attending Word of Life Bible Institute could be “the best year of their life,” spent diving deep into God’s Word! We would love to have you visit the campus! You’re welcome to stay in our Alumni Cottage for a night or two on beautiful Schroon Lake – we would count it a privilege to serve you.

Fellow Alumni and Friends of WOLBI, As I write this, I am sitting in my office, looking out across our amazing campus. While I am blown away by all God has provided this year, especially considering these unusual times, I am more amazed by the incredible students walking this very campus right now, learning and growing in their faith day by day. As a team of faculty and staff, we are beyond grateful to see these bright young people attentively learning God’s Word and applying it to their lives! Word of Life Bible Institute has always been and will always be about these things: God’s Word and God’s people.

capacity. In our classrooms, students now sit in groups with their roommates, which has created an incredible sense of camaraderie and community amongst them. One of the biggest challenges – and blessings – this year concerns student ministries. With limited travel and gatherings allowed, we were forced to think outside the box. We found a way students could put this into action right from campus: sharing their testimonies. On both campuses, each student’s ministry will involve recording and sharing their testimony on social media. We are praying the gospel goes forth in a powerful way as students share the message of salvation through their personal stories of life change. Campus Facilities Update The Huskies Health and Athletic Center is now complete, and students have been enjoying this amazing facility. The roadways and walkways on our New York campus have all been resurfaced and paved, and we have installed additional lighting on campus. Colombia, Turkey, Chile, England and Europe dormitories were fully remodeled this year. In keeping with our other remodels, they have been rebuilt

This academic year is off to a great start, with 370 students on site. As of now, we have had no confirmed COVID-19 cases on our New York or Florida campuses. Our students and staff have been amazing as they have navigated the restrictions and guidelines placed upon us. I can say with certainty the Class of 2021 will have experienced Word of Life Bible Institute like no other class before. COVID-19 Update As a team, we have learned to pivot quickly concerning serving meals, dorm roomassignments, service assignments and ministries. In the dining room, for example, we are operating at 50%
