My time in the Counseling Psychology Department at Emmaus was stretching: theologically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. I was challenged to consider the basis for my beliefs and align them with Truth. This program held some of my most formative classes and was instrumental in shaping my character and pointing me to a life of purpose.

This past Spring, students were afforded the opportunity to get some real-world experience at His Mansion, a Christian community focused on rehabilitation and counseling. Ben Mathew (program director) sent this update in the middle of the trip:
Dear EBC Faculty & Staff,
We’re coming into our 2nd week of the His Mansion internship here in New Hampshire and praising God for all His good provisions. The 1st week was a lot of physical labor: cutting down trees, clearing fields, tending animals, cleaning, painting and just a lot of time serving the physical needs of this community. It was a good experience for the students as they got to see the life of residents here, and engage with them in some meaningful relationships and conversations. We praise God for all the safety He has provided, and the encouragement we been able to provide, and the encouragement we’ve received as well.
We spent our day off in downtown Boston exploring all the history and culture of the city. It was a first-time experience for many of the students and a great time had by all.
This 2nd week will be more of a classroom experience, with different teachers and instructors training us on the different aspects of ministry while up here on the hill. Pray that our students really take advantage of this training and that they will be able to incorporate what they’ve learned here into their own lives and ministries. There are a number of other students from many other schools (Wheaton, Trinity, Houghton) and it’s been good to network with other programs from around the country.
We’ve been able to connect with a number of EBC alumni as well, and it’s been encouraging to see how the Lord is working through our graduates in this part of the country. Much prayer is need for our alum as they engage this dark and dying world with the truth and light of God in Christ Jesus.
Your prayers are very much appreciated, and we look forward to seeing you all soon. Blessings.

“The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with. Elijah, for instance, human just like us, prayed hard that it wouldn't rain, and it didn't—not a drop for three and a half years. Then he prayed that it would rain, and it did. The showers came and everything started growing again.” (James 5:16-18, The Message)
