For over seven months prior to opening the classes, the support staff of the BBN Bible Institute worked to make the Bible courses available for study. As course topics were chosen, audio files edited, and tests prepared, little did anyone know the great impact that this new study tool would have upon BBN listeners and friends.
Predictions were for a good response, but never did we anticipate the thousands who would express an interest and sign up to study the Bible online. I guess you could say we were " of little faith." However, God has touched the hearts of over 2500 students and they have registered and are now taking courses in BBNBI.
The reports from those students say it best and many of them have written to share their thoughts. Here are a few of their comments:
"I have listened to your radio station for a long time and it is always such a blessing. I am now taking your online courses...WOW What a great tool! THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO! "
"First of all I would like to thank BBN on providing these classes. I have learned a lot from this course. I pray God will continue to bless this radio station. I couldn't afford to go to a college, and now I can study in my home and learn about my most Heavenly Father. Thank you!"
"Having just finished the first course, 10100, The Names of God, I would like to thank BBN for offering this Bible Study Course. I have wanted to do some Bible Study, but have not had the money for a Bible College. Now that it is offered on-line, and free, I felt compelled to "Jump On It!" Again, thanks, and God bless you. "
"On Sunday afternoon, June 11, I completed the first lesson on Daniel 41000.
Dr. Renald Showers lecture was outstanding and the questions easy to understand.
Thank you very much for giving your radio listeners such an outstanding opportunity to increase their knowledge of God's Word. May our Lord use BBNBI to glorify His name. I am an eager student to know God's Word more."
We praise the Lord for this great response and ask His blessing upon all who are taking courses now. We trust that many more will desire to study His Word with us.
