“Everything fell into place so quickly for me to study at SETI,”
“Everything fell into place so quickly for me to study at SETI,” says Luciane Mesquita, one of our new students from Paraná, Brazil. “I met someone who recommended the school for my spiritual growth. My first days were difficult since everything was so new and I did not know anyone; but I am having such a wonderful experience with God and learning so much about nutrition and communion with God—I love it!”
On August 2 we began our Bible evangelism course with eight students, who will be here until their graduation on November 19. Here are testimonies from two other students:
“I learned about SETI during a camp meeting in July. There the Lord opened the door for me to receive a scholarship. Within two weeks my suitcases were ready, and I traveled from São Paulo to Espirito Santo. My experience here has been excellent! It is good to be able to study in a Christian environment. Even though I was raised in the church, I had never studied certain Bible topics deeply. The classes have been great!” Flávio Alves Morales, São Paulo, Brazil
“For 20 years I had wanted to study to be a missionary. I learned about SETI at a camp meeting. I was with a friend who encouraged me to go, but because of some family issues, I turned down the invitation. I battled with the Lord for some time about whether or not I should study here. However, God had a special purpose in mind. He opened the doors and I was able to come. Being here has been a great blessing!” Cícero Alencar, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
We hope to be able to receive larger groups of students in the future. We are currently building a new dorm and a health center and are only lacking $4,000 to finish the project. We hope to finish construction by January 17, just in time for our next course.
Finally, we are happy to announce the arrival of our newest little team member this past July 8—Sofia Ellen Miranda. She is the daughter of Giancarlo (’10 Hartland alumnus) and Tatiana Miranda.
