Christian Leaders Institute: Free Bible School Online
My name is Jean Robinson, and I am thankful for CLI’s free Bible school online. I live in Greensboro, North Carolina in the USA. I was born on July 19, 1982, to a middle-class family in Virginia. My parents had a small farm and garden. I have three brothers, and I am the youngest and the only girl. Being quite a few years behind them, when they left home, I was still young. I got baptized when I was eight, but the church was about an hour away from where we lived. So, we didn’t go to church every Sunday, but I prayed daily.
At 15, I became disabled, but it took the doctors years to officially figure out all that was really wrong with me. The state of Virginia had part of the puzzle solved. However, when Walter and I got married and moved to Greensboro, NC, is when they discovered some better treatments for me. Moses Cone Hospital saved my life. I had four major surgeries since we moved to North Carolina, which has great doctors. Greensboro is a great city for us to live in, and I thank God for bringing us here.
Called to Ministry and Study at CLI
I see a lot of homelessness and people with the same illness I have that are much worse off than me. I look around and see how blessed I am. That’s my calling to ministry. I have a degree in Medical Assisting, as well. I really enjoy helping others, from babies to older people. My ministry work has led me to teach Head Start for children, and I have done work in nursing homes. I volunteer at the local churches. I also volunteer at the homeless shelters and the food distribution places. Greensboro Urban Ministry is another one of the organizations where I serve.
The free Bible School online at Christian Leaders Institute is a blessing to me. Now, I can receive further education and training to work in ministry. I am excited to see where God will lead me in all of this! Thank you, CLI!
