FREE LESSON BIBLE SCHOOL RAISES FUNDS
By: Anele Nduzulwana
Young people united as the International Independent Bible School raised funds with a Bazaar on Saturday, at Essenwood in Musgrave.
IBS had its members engaged in selling food and clothes through auctioning to avoid charging people for learning the bible.
Bible teacher, Shaun Hartnick, said that the aim of the bazaar was to raise funds in order to pay for the building the school is currently using, and help with maintenance.
“We want to maintain the building so that more people would come to learn the word of God and our students wanted to participate and they really enjoyed,” said Hartnick.
Lindo Dhlamini, a student at the bible school, said that it was nice to see young people united with one purpose of helping to attract more people to God.
“I am glad that I participated in the bazaar, I was serving drinks and I really had fun,” said Dhlamini. “At IBS I’ve learnt about God, his Purpose and got to know more of his word.”
Production Manager in Engineering, Siphokazi Majozi who also a student at IBS, said that the Bazaar was phenomenal and interesting.
“I was worried about the weather but it turned out well. The food was tasty and the spirit around was good,” she said.
Majozi said that she realised when she joined the bible school that all along she was serving a God she did not know.
She added that she is blessed with a career and house while some people are less fortunate.
“I asked myself why other people don’t have nice things. But the scriptures would be opened and I learnt about the blessings and curses from God,” she said.
Majozi advised young people to come and learn about their creator and know the expectations he has for them.
