When it comes to campus maintenance and improvements, every summer begins with a lengthy to-do list. And each year the Lord brings skilled volunteers who humbly work on those projects and accomplish far more than our staff could alone. What a blessing!
Here is a great opportunity for our community.

Pray for a senior Missions student as he serves in three different cities of Turkey this summer. Even as he gains experience in TESOL (teaching English to speakers of other languages), he will have opportunities to share the gospel. #ABCsummermissions

A senior Missions student and a 2018 graduate headed to England for the second half of the summer. Ask God to give them effective children's ministries and use them to encourage the missionaries they assist. #ABCsummermissions
First a truckload of donated shingles showed up. Then this volunteer work team from Independent Bible Church came to install them—besides serving in other ways.
Once again, the Lord uses his people to meet needs, just like he has done over and over for ABC since 1950. He is faithful!
This summer we bid farewell to the VanMaasdams, who have served at ABC since 2013. Mr. Van brought all kinds of creativity to campus as Music Major Chair. He coordinated events like Christmas concerts and musical ministry teams such as the Gospel Heralds. Meanwhile, Mrs. Van became the friendly voice of ABC as she answered phones and welcomed visitors at the receptionist's desk. They both loved investing in students. Do you have a favorite memory of the Vans?
Along with a team, one ABC student is using his summer to gain cross-cultural experience teaching English in Asia. Pray that in the remainder of his internship he would develop relationships which allow him to communicate the gospel. He also requests prayer for safety and health, and for wisdom in lesson preparation. #ABCsummermissions
