Semester News 
The Fall 2013 semester is sadly coming to an end.  We have had a fun-filled semester.   There have been activities from boating on the river, youth retreats, baptisms, and leading worship at church.  One of our events was a Hanai Family Day at Wailua river to say thank you to all the families who have taken different students in to love on them and bless them with home cooked meals and great friendships.  Our Hanai a Student program has been a blessing to both the students and the families.  God has hand-picked each student to be with each family.  It has been neat to see how God knew exactly what family would be good for each student.  This picture of each family "hanai-ing" each and every student is a good reminder of how God has "hanai-ed" each one of us to be his sons and daughters. 
We are excited to report that we have 8 students that are wanting to return to KBC next semester.  God has been doing a lot of work here in the students lives.  They have been growing in their knowledge and understnding of the bible and also seeing the importance of disciplemaking.  One thing that the students agree on is that their morning devotion time is something that they have liked best over the semester.  Every morning we have a set aside time that everyone dedicates to morning devotions with the Lord.  For the first 45 minutes this is an individual time alone that each student has with the Lord.  For the last 15 minutes all the guys come together and all the girls come together to have a time lead by the dean of men or the dean of women for the girls.  This is a special time where we can freely come and share/pray/encourage one another in the Lord.  



Prayer
Please remember to pray for KBC.  Prayer is a powerful tool used to fight against Satan and his attacks.  Some things that you can pray for specifically are: a smooth transition for Will (our new M199 Overseer),  future students and that the Lord would provide financially for the needs of KBC.   
The Lord answers prayers! 
In our last newsletter we noted the need of a new M199 overseer.  This past week we have hired our new M199 overseer!  Will Schumacher, who will be taking over for Jon Hoffman, has lived on the island for about 6 months.  The M199 overseer is almost the same as a property manager.  KBC has been blessed to have Jon here on staff for the last 2 years.  God is calling him to go to Colorado to work on a program team at a year round christian camp called Camp Elim.  He is going to be facilitating the out door education program.  KBC is going to miss Jon but we are all excited for his new adventure! 

 
KBC is in need of your help
As most of you know, our housing here at KBC consists of Safari Tents.  When we got these tents, their life expectancy was 2 years.  We are currently on year 6 with the same tents!  Over this past semester our tents really took a beating.  One weekend we had winds up to 40 miles per hour.  Some of the outer canopies could not weather the storm and were ripping in different areas.  Our tent walls really thin, so when the wind blows (which is every day here on Kauai) the tent walls constantly rub against the cables that help to hold the tent down. This is causing the walls to rip.  These tents have many patches on them, and now the patches are starting to deteriorate .  It is our goal to raise $60,000 to get new tents by the start of our spring semester at the end of January.  We would like to ask that you prayerfully consider investing in the ministry here at KBC.  With new tents we will be able to house more students and continue to provide a place where students can come out and spend a significant amount of time with God and other believers.   Unfortunately, we are not up to date with being able to receive donations online.  If you would like to donate, you can send checks addressed to Kauai Bible College at P.O. Box 1990 Kapaa, HI 96746.  In the memo please indicate that the money is for "new tents".  We would like to say mahalo in advance for your generosity towards KBC.
