Ordained Ministry Deacon
Thank you, Christian Leaders Institute for making this Deacon Minister Ordination possible! My name is Bernice Landman from South Africa and I am excited to be an ordained ministry deacon. My country is flourishing with the spreading of the gospel, and the Christians continue faithfully to spread the gospel to the rural areas in Africa. Unfortunately, we have many cultures and beliefs due to the many nations who dwell here, so the path is a hard one. But many are receiving the Lord with praise and joy, Amen.
I was very fortunate to be raised in a Christian family. I attended church and got baptized at a young age. Unfortunately, Satan and, of course, my human desires made me walk a hard path. But because of God’s great and constant love, I was taught and forgiven many times. I have been tried and failed but always had the hand of God to help me up again. I’ve always had this deep love for God, but I must admit that I have fought, turned my back and questioned the Lord many times. He has shown me that I cannot live without Him and given me more understanding, patience, forgiveness, and mercy. My love for God has grown beyond what I ever dreamed of. To reconcile God’s children to Him and to bring God joy is my main goal as an ordained ministry deacon. I feel that God’s sorrows are great as He looks upon His children to see that they don’t care about Him, don’t know Him, and even mock Him when He loves them so much.
I am blessed with a wonderful Christian husband. I am barren but God blessed us with a wonderful son. We adopted Tashmain when he was one and a half months old and he knows and loves God: Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. As I did this course as well as all the other courses that I have taken so far on my ordained ministry deacon journey, I have constantly shared my knowledge with them and it has been a wonderful and enlightening experience. My son who is now eighteen announced at a family gathering recently that he would like to go into ministry through the help of CLI’s excellent education program. What a mother’s joy to hear the love and dedication he has for our Lord. I pray that more mothers will hear these precious words, “I want to dedicate my life to God and his ministry.”
I am so grateful to Christian Leaders Institute for making these online studies available for free! What a wonderful gift they are giving to all those who are wanting to do the work of God and need education to fully understand the Bible with accuracy. Your layout is brilliant; it’s easy and well presented. From the day I started, I have drawn closer to Jesus; I have started to pray more and learned so much. So I would like to thank you for your gift. I pray that many will donate to your institute to enable it to continue to bless God’s work on earth as the world needs education in God’s word. Pray that my ears will hear the Lord’s voice clearly, that my mind can grasp and understand what He teaches me. Also that God may grant me wisdom and insight on how to help His children and the grace to love and bless as He would like me to do. Thank you, CLI.
