Santa Barbara City College

Santa Barbara City College is a beautiful campus right on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. We arrived the first day to preach but were stopped by the campus security who told us we could not speak without permission from the administration, and after going to the main office we were allowed only one hour the next day to preach. Therefore, our normal meeting needed to be condensed into a space of one hour, but the Lord was with us and gave us an excellent time of preaching, with many attentive and inquisitive listeners. When we were finished, our hearers even gave us a round of applause.

"And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:14-16)

Blessings, my friends. If the Lord wills I shall be home shortly, and I eagerly desire to see you all. It has been a tremendous blessing to travel across the country these last few months lifting up the Name of the Son of God, and the Lord has taught me many things about Himself and about my own self. I am humbled to be called a preacher of Christ. Saints, I wish you all a very happy Christmas holiday, and may the Lord bless you and keep you, may you experience the sweet fellowship in the Holy Spirit and with one another in love. Grace and peace to you from,

Your brother and fellow labourer in the Gospel,
-Eli
