Dear Alumni:

I would like to recap Alumni weekend quickly for those who might have missed out. Tim and Charity Johnson (NBC, 2003) came all the way out from BC this year and they shared their ministry and Tim preached on Sunday morning. On top of that the weekend was filled with excellent music, testimonies, games, sports, and meals. We had a 50's diner theme for Obah night which resulted in Rachel Block (Student Council President) pieing yours truly in the face to the satisfaction of the audience. A lot of planning, work, and sacrifice went into pulling off the weekend and I would again like to thank everyone who helped make it happen.

This year's executive members include Ashley Thiessen, Jordan Doerksen, Melanie McArthur, Brenden Peters, Jason Elford (NBC staff liaison), and Kyle Larson (President). If you are unfamiliar with any members of this team and you either want to see a picture of us or learn a bit more about us, please visit the Alumni section of NBC website at www.nipawin.org. There you can find information regarding the current executive and new information, along with other material like newsletters or class lists from years passed.

On December 12th the Christmas Cantata took place, which is a lovely reminder to students and the Nipawin community that Christmas is upon us. Exams are looming and I know students would appreciate your prayers for studies, holiday travels, and preparations for the upcoming semester of classes in the new year. Throughout January both the Freshmen Ministry Practicum (FMP) and Outreach Ministry Practicum (OMP) trips will be taking place as the freshmen disperse throughout the province and the second years head out to Vancouver.

I would like to end this letter by pointing out the biggest event of the year for NBC. March 4-6, 2016 is the date for three60five. Senior high youth will flock to the college to make memories with their friends, enjoy the attention of students and learn about Christ and the Bible. For some it is just another weekend event that they get to spend with their youth group, while for others it is the first time they will be exposed to the message of our Savior. In either case it not only changes lives, but exposes these youth to NBC and can plant a desire to learn more whether it be from NBC or another Bible college.

I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. Whether the holidays are filled with laughter and joy or tough trials, I hope you will remember the gift our Lord gave, as He sent His Son to this world as a sacrifice.

Season's Blessings,
Kyle Larson

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:1-2)
