Whale of a Time!

Rich and Jo Ann Davis on March 29, 2015

Joyful Whale Joyful Humpback

The prime period to catch sight of migrating whales in the US Virgin Islands is middle February through middle March. Indeed, the whales have been spotted this month playing in the bay just below the campus of Bluewater Bible College. Some folks believe that whales breach just for fun and it's a sure thing that watching them frolick is fun! 

Paul didn't exactly say, "Rejoice like a breaching whale" but from our place overlooking the bay, it's a great image to have in mind. 

Fun Flips Cheerful Student!

Cheerful Students

The Spring semester began with an all expense paid trip to St. Croix for the students of BBC. The ocasion was the annual conference of the West Indies Fellowship of Baptist Churches. There was a dedicated slot in the program for the students to encourage the churches in song and with their testimonies. The presentation was well received filling us with joy. 

We are thankful to several of the island churches which raised special offerings to make it possible for the students to participate. There is little question as to how much the Caribbean churches love the college and the students. We had a whale of a time in St. Croix!

Jumpin for Joy The Stone's are raring to go!

Cheering Stones

Passion Week begins with Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a donkey. The “whole multitude of disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice” and some of the Pharisees told Jesus to rebuke His disciples. He replied that if they held their peace “the very stones would cry out (burst into cheers)” (Luke 19:40).

Billy and Cecilia Stone arrived on the BBC campus at the beginning of March and immediately began putting their skills and talents to work. Billy has been given charge of the physical plant and Cecilia, a registered nurse, is serving in the BBC business office with Jo Ann. Students, faculty and administration alike are praising the Lord for bringing this dedicated couple to help in whatever way possible.

Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice” (Philippians 4:4).

In our last newsletter, we asked for prayer that the Lord would send someone to replace Gwyndolyn who returned to the mainland for health needs. Little did we know how quickly the Lord would answer. Thank you for praying!

Cheering Louder!

April is BBC month in the Caribbean and we are excited to see what the Lord is going to do this year. Last year the Lord blessed our campus with a fresh coat of paint on every campus building. This year there are two projects that the Lord has put on our hearts. One of the faculty houses needs a new roof and we also need to upgrade the technology on campus. These projects call for rising just over $8,000 this month. Please join us in prayer for these needs. Perhaps the Lord would put it into your heart to see what you or your church could do to make BBC month a huge success once again! 

The end of this academic year is will happen in mid May and we rejoice that the Lord has blessed so abundantly. We are praying for Him to send more committed students for the coming year. Prayer is also needed as we work on strengthening the academic aspects of the college. Rich is getting close to completing his studies at Columbia International University and has learned volumes about higher education in a Christian context. Please continue to pray for strength, wisdom and the finances to finish the course. We are asking the Lord to move in the hearts of our prayer partners to turn up the volume on praying and giving.
