Hi L.J. Ehrlich, Thanks for your prompt reply. May I know how can I make a donation at the same time I would like to find out more from you regarding the free course that the ministry offered. I am really keen to know more about about JESUS and would like to have my life transformed although I had been a Christian for 3 years plus.I would like to have a closer walk with HIM and I really need your kind assistant. I am a slow learner and have short memory. Due to personal problem, demonic attack, witchcraft. Get through my hubby that how much the Lord had loved HE him when he had a lot of setback from family and friends. Most important to get closer to HIM and know HIM and need God supernatural to help my family to know JESUS to break away the generation curses. Charis Koh, Singapore

I gave my life to the Lord at age 10. I have wavered for many years. There were so many different teachings out there that it was confusing. I have backslid on occasions but have always come back to the Lord. I was introduced to the Apostolic faith almost two years ago and am now getting the proper teachings at my church. I desire to know more about the Apostolic faith and to be able to properly tell others the truth. Your online courses are perfectly designed to help me in my search for the truth. William Brown
Jehovah Witness Conversion: I was born into the Jehovah's Witness faith. I enrolled in the theoro cratic ministry School at the age of 8. It was at this time in my life where I began to study the bible and deliver sermons in public worship services as well as, outside missionary and informal witness through the field service ministry. I served in the ministry faithfully until the age of 23. I had never been to a church outside of what I was taught under the Jehovah's Witness faith. I heard the true gospel of Jesus Christ preached at a home going service for my grandfather. It was there that I realized that there was so much more to relationship with God than I had learned. I experience the presence of God for the first time in my life at this funeral, and became so overwhelmed in tears as love that I could not contain myself. . 2 years later I decided to attend a church service for the first time in my life. I went to a revival and was saved and filled with the Holy Spirit. Kevn, North Carolina

Dear AFOL, I found Jesus 7 years ago after years of

I am a firm believer that we are to pass on our knowledge to a coming generation. I would like to better position myself for the Harvest of souls that is at hand.
I also believe that we are to remain teachable and I would like to pass that on by being an example to the flock God has placed me over. In Christ Service; Gabriel A. Beady
Brother L.J. Ehrlich,
Claire, England: Taking Bible, 120, Who is Jesus
I lived in Israel for a while on a kibbutz. Whilst there, I studied the religions and history of the Holy Land. I was greatly impressed by the hospitality and love I received from my Palestinian friends. When I returned to England I converted to Islam and practiced the faith for ten years. I studied at various Universities and as I moved around God brought me closer to who I am today. I became a high school teacher but also got involved in an abusive relationship. Eventually in an attempt to escape from this I moved to Ipswich, a small sleepy town in the countryside. I would never have guest that I would meet the savior here, or that Pentecostal fire was burning and the saints were very much on fire for God. I thought I could start a new life; however my ex-partner continued to haunt me; breaking into my home, sending me hate mail or leaving messages on my phone. I was in despair; I prayed in my heart and asked God to help me. Once you are a Muslim it is very difficult to leave. I started to go swimming at the local pool, and met a woman there and we began to talk and swim together. She was a born again Christian and eventually she invited me to bible study. I went for one visit and knew immediately that God was in this place, He touched my heart. I knew that Jesus was more than a prophet, but my savior, Lord and God. I asked the church to pray for me, told them my situation. Within three days, I was blessed with a cheque, it was for £32,000! With the money I was able to buy myself an apartment in a secure building with security cameras and security doors. If this was not enough, God caused another miracle. The church had been looking for a new building, and two weeks after I moved into my apartment, the church moved directly across the street! God moved me into the right place (the words in Esther come to mind; ‘Called to the kingdom for such a time as this’). Since that time I began to attend church and made a commitment on 6th April 2005. I am now baptized in Jesus name and filled with the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in tongues (Acts 2:38).
From Joel Mapesa, KenyaJoel is taking Hebrews 101 “God is good that through Apostolic Faith online my knowledge of understanding God’s word is going to expand, even my way of approach when teaching the body of Christ.”
Bruce, Florida, USA“Awesome, I am from a Hindu background, found the truth and was baptized with water and spirit in 2001 and unexplainable occurrence that changed my life forever, now I want to spread the word to the world”
Victor, Puerto Rico“I was a drug addict for 20 years but im serving the lord since 1999”
Sermangu, Uganda Africa“I am Ugandan male aged 28. I got saved in 2003 when I attended the crusade which was at our play ground. Since that day I loved God and I started looking for free Bible courses. I am really very happy because I have got what I was searching for. May God Bless you.”
Dale, Uganda Africa“I gave my life to Christ when they preached to me about getting saved onetime when I was a certain church in the evenings.”
Kimberly, Virginia, USA“At age 9, I was in my grandmother's church. Pastor Boggs was speaking about the war coming in end times. I wanted to be ready. As we stood, I was extremely nervous, but I felt the hand of the Lord slightly tug me. I have been saved since that day.”
Jesus, Oregon, USA “I used to be a drug dealer when Jesus found me”
Deborah, Wisconsin, USA“One of the greatest days of my life, was the day the Lord filled me with the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues, and then being baptized in Jesus name for the remission of my sins.”
Carol, Oregon, USA“I heard the call of God to the ministry at 10 years old.”
Michelle, Pennsylvania, USA“I had drifted away from the lord and I feel God calling me back”
Randy, Ohio, USA“I was methadis and I started to go to church with my ex girlfriends family. It was a 1upc church. I was there for a while and felt something special like I have never felt. God told me I was at right place. So I learned who he really was and got to known him closer ,he's love for us all. I got Baptist and received the holy ghost. Then one night Jesus started to talk to me and showed me who I am. Then he told me were I was suppose to be. In the church not just setting the sits but preaching. That is when I was certain I was in right place”
Emmanuel, AfricaDear L.J. Ehrlich, Thanks so much for the lesson. I am Emmanuel and a Christian. I like to spread the gospel so it gave me joy when I got in touch with your institution.

Sarah, ChinaBefore I knew Christ, I didn't know that there's a only true God in the universe. Through prayer and reading the Bible, I got to know the Almighty God, and I am a sinner, and believe that Jesus is His Son, who died on the cross for our sin, and I am saved through believing Jesus.

Donabel O. Abao. PhilippinesFamily and friends call me with my nicknames: either Donna or Grace. Am 33 years old and was born on July 10, 1974. Am annulled for 9 yrs now and I have one son who is now 11 yrs old. For my education, I graduated with a degree in Bachelor of Science major in Business Management. Currently am not working because am a full time student in Bachelor of Science in Nursing and by God's grace I will be completing it hopefully this coming October 2007. As to my involvement in church, by faith am a born again Christian (Evangelical). I used to be the praise and worship song leader in church but due to conflict in schedules at school I have to give the task to others. But I am still actively involve and leading a cell group of adult professionals every Wednesday and participative in other task such as on schedule service leader or Scripture reader or tithe encourager and other activities in church. The reason why I enrolled in your school was because of my great desire to learn more about the Word of God and my desire to be able to minister to a lot of people and share His Word. Even with my busy schedule in Nursing school I do not see it as a hindrance in my personal spiritual growth. I always place God above everything else cause He matters to me most more than anything in the world. I believe your school will help me to be more equipped Biblically, professionally, and spiritually and help me learn how to handle the word of truth accurately to be effective in the ministry and it is my prayer to be able to fulfill my dream of evangelizing and bringing more people to the Lord in God's own appointed time. Thank you once again for giving me this chance to be part of your school, am honored and grateful. In Christ, Donabel

Brother EhrlichIt is good indeed to hear that others are sacrificing. Myself am in a more similar situation as my country is on a continued recession and internet costs are spiraling. That is what at times i send more than 1 lesson to my instructor. What i do is that i have friends who have internet access at their workplaces and i visit them regularly and i download as much lessons as i can, copy them and send them to my work email address. i then print them out and work on them one by one at night after work, then input my answers at a later stage then email my instructors. When my friends are busy, I sacrifice the little that I have and go to an internet cafe, download, copy and paste to my yahoo email and send to my work email. It is hard but I persevere, as I want to serve the lord at any cost. In the mean time, I’m as well requesting for assistance to acquire a laptop. it would be easier for me as I can apply for internet access at home and the rates for private use are not huge. I would then let some of my brethren whom I’m doing bible study with, enroll with AF Online so that we can share the costs and labour in the Lord's vine together. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for launching AF Online May God continue to richly bless you. Brother Graham Mhlakaza
I am very committed in this course and is better I go with out food just to look for even a small money to go and check my course in Internet Cafe, the bible tell us to seek the Kingdom of God first and all with follow. Please stand with us in prayers. I would be happy to receive my next lesson. Thank you so much, I feel too that God has great plans for me. God bless you greeting from my family. Brother Jackton

I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour and Lord
of my life as I know I cannot be saved by myself and other people. JN 1:12 Thank
you so very much for your email and I could began now my study here in Myanmar.
While the study is graciously provided by the Apostolic Faith Online, the cost
of using internet is also expensive here. However, I will pray to God and try
hard about my study of God's Word. I am now sending my photo to the College. And
please let me know if it is acceptable for your purpose. I am here working for
the Lord at my best in teaching God's Word to the church. I am thankful to you
and to all of the teachers there at the Apostolic Faith Bible College.

AFOL Lesson, Question # 18. If you have a calling on your life, share your experience for the calling.God continues to reveal to me in a strong sense that He wants me out of my formal employment into His field. This is by way of dreams, visions. I have a deep conviction that He has called me hence my enrolling with AFOL to adequately prepare myself for the ministry. Brother Graham Mhlakaza
Topeka, Kansas I worked with a friend who kept inviting me to "church" events. Finally, I went to see the movie "A Thief In The Night".I was struck with this thought: " If I believe and they have lied, I have lost nothing. But if I do not believe and they are telling the truth, I have lost everything." A week later was Easter Sunday and I went to church with my friend. When the invitation was given, I could not keep myself from running to the front of the church, getting on my knees, and surrending all to the LORD. The forgiveness for my sin was completely overwhelming. D. Downs
Dear Dean Ehrlich. I am so greatful for being

and God bless you
BIBL101, "This lesson really makes me think about the death and resurrection of Jesus. Jesus suffered for a sinner like me. Jesus came to show us the way, and to give us life. By His stripes I am healed today, I am no longer controlled by sin. I am now controlled by the Holy Spirit which helps guides me unto righteousness. Also Jesus as human was tempted but He sinned not. Jesus gave us power so that we don't have to be controlled by sin and bow down to every temptation that comes our way. I now have hope in Jesus, I have a new life and my Father is preparing a place for me." AFOL Student, May 2008
As teams leader of the AFOL classroom in Uganda, on behalf of the enrolled students with the latter wish to extend our sincere thanks to Midway Country Church for having hearkened to our cry and funded for the establishment of our class , we are grateful , and believe that with this daily growing number we will make an impact in our ministry and we believe that as calling and anointing are important , so is training equally important. God bless you indeed .Till the race is done, Lawrence Hope Ssemaganda, Uganda

I grew up as a Catholic and later converted to Pentecostal in 1996. I was baptized by emersion that year and received the Holy Spirit with the sign of speaking in tongue. Since then, The LORD has laid it upon my heart the burden to reach out to others with His Word. In the zeal of the new spirit, I moved to the Gambia, West Africa, a predominantly Moslem county and began evangelizing among them. With no support from any organization, I was able to establish Bible study groups, work with other Christian groups on the ground and distribute Christian literature freely in most parts of the country. With the desire to be fully trained for ministry, I attempted a few times to apply to a Bible college but, due to the lack of finance, I was unsuccessful. I eventually decided to return home in 2002 to wait on God for the appropriate time when He will make the way for me to fulfill what He has laid on my heart. Kevin B. Sierra Leone, Africa
