The Bible exam helped me to see how my knowledge of the Word of God was and to work on those things that I do not know, I've learnt the importance of fighting for our faith.
What were the highlights of the Summit for you? Spiritual revival - meeting like-minded believers, To have seen with my own eyes how totally diverse people from different nations can come together in praise and worship of the same God, the learning, making friends and the atmosphere, the times of fellowship over meals and in the small groups, the outreach, Bill Bathman's sermons and lectures as well as Peter Hammond, Bible drill, Rev. Bill Bathman, the Variety concert and church service, Everything was outstanding and well done, networking and focusing on pro-active "What Now", many said the discussion groups and Bible drills, several mentioned the Dating & Courtship lectures and Humanism presentations, the Terrorism & Persecution video and Simple Tools for Brain Surgery, the Understanding Communism presentations were also mentioned, I loved all Uncle Bill's lectures, the visual demonstrations helped a lot and I liked Bill Bathman a lot! Meeting amazing people from all nations with the same love for God, several mentioned the video on Sudan and some the Bible Exam!, The Summit was memorable and recommendable, seeing other Christian's enthusiasm and being inspired through it, Lectures were very interesting, Discussions with informed people who base their opinions on fact and Scripture instead of the usual thought-based opinion, the manner of presentations and their accuracy and impact on us, others mentioned the God & Government lecture and Christian Culture.

Has this course led you to make any decisions? Some of the decisions written down on the response forms by participants included: To commit myself to Christ, To live more and more like Jesus, To not just read the Bible, but actually remember the exact Scriptures, I have come to a new realisation of the importance of Scripture memorisation, To apply Biblical principles more and remove humanism from my life, Spend more time reading Christian literature rather than wasting my time with unimportant things, To develop more intimate relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ, Actually this course has led me to make many decisions about, for example - smoking, drinking and being amused by the worlds distractions, to follow God's plan for me and obey Him - my spiritual battery is fully charged! To love the Lord my God with all my mind as well - more than before - Romans 12:2, Colossians 2:8, To dedicate my work to the propagation of the Gospel of Christ, To not get a tongue ring and to take my earrings out! To try and understand the Bible better and to build a better foundation for my Christian life, to memorise more Scripture, I want to make a difference in my school - make people aware of humanism so that they can realise that we need to get back to God's Word, To spend most of my time serving the Lord and not out playing and wasting my time, To do further investigation on the facts and absorb everything that will make my walk with the Lord a fervent one, To never give up, never give up, never, ever give up!!! To attend the Summit again, to get more involved in understanding politics and history, to get practical and stop avoiding responsibility, to write letters to the newspaper, Summit was a great experience! I thank God for the opportunity and next year I'll be back!!! To help the needy, to correct where I see sin, to rebuke false teaching, to intercede for other nations, to be a hot Christian - not lukewarm, to try and make a difference in my community, to spread the Word of God, The Summit is too short! I want to know more history - especially about the Church, I want to know God's Word more, to court (when the time comes) and not to date, to get involved in defending God's Law in our country.
