Midstream College is privileged to partner with the Bible Society of South Africa once again. We gladly support the mission to provide affordable Bibles to the people of South Africa in their own languages. The container that will be handed out tomorrow can be used to donate any amount. Every R100 donated will allow the Bible Society to provide one Bible to someone. We trust that these Bibles will be part of the seeds that bring hope to many people in our country. Thank you for your voluntary support. Please send the containers to your child’s register class teacher by 28 October.
