On Monday of the conference we spent the day listening to presentations from various individuals from Christian schools from all over the world. It has been so inspiring and such a blessing to hear of God’s working in places like Canada, France, Africa and Romania.
I was particularly impressed with a presentation by Daniel Neuhaus from France. France is a place and society that has all but shut God out. However, Daniel and others continue in prayer and service to God within the context of churches and Christian schools and they are shedding the light of Christ in a very dark place.
Marcus Chibisa from Zimbabwe, Africa shared about his service for the Lord at Gateway Christian school. His story was a strong testimony about the role that a Christian school can play in the lives of individuals and a community. Marcus was imprisoned for his faith for one year in the 1970s and he praises God for the experience as he was able to share Christ with his fellow prisoners and he feels the experience gave him strength and skills to serve as a Christian leader in his country.
The conference is an experience that is hard to explain. The connections that are being made between Christian people from around the globe are amazing and hold great potential to further the work of Jesus Christ in the world.
