The Experience Magazine 50th Year Edition

A Note from Don Lough, Jr.

I am amazed by all God has done through Word of Life Bible Institute over the past 50 years. By His grace, thousands of students have deepened their faith and received training as ambassadors for JesusChrist. In turn, these students have embraced their responsibility to reach this generation with the gospel, and hundreds of thousands of people have been impacted worldwide. The Bible Institute now consists of sixteen campuses across the globe, and it is humbling to see God still igniting our students’ hearts to study the Word, live it out in community, and then go forth as proclaimers of the gospel. As Romans 10:15 says, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring Good News!” From the very beginning, our focus has not merely been to provide students with an education. Instead, the Bible Institute is about preparing students for a lifetime of effective service to the Lord. Our approach finds its roots in Ezra 7:10, “For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the Law of the Lord, and to do it, and to teach statutes and ordinances in Israel.” Ezra prepared himself by studying the Scriptures. He fleshed it out in a practical way, and he then shared it with others. What a model! As we celebrate God’s faithfulness on this 50th anniversary, we are deeply grateful for your prayers, support, and friendship over many years. I pray that this special edition of The Experience will prompt your heart to rejoice over all that God has done and continues to do today. To Him be the glory!
