I know you are all aware of the recent failed predictions of the return of Christ and the end of the world. What saddens me is the fact the world around us is now mocking the whole of Christianity because of these false teachers who twist and distort the scripture. Regardless of the false teachers, or the mockers of our generation, we all know our Lord is going to return one day. While no one knows when He will return, scripture teaches us of the great need to be prepared. This is why we preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is why we train preachers.
Another class of students has completed their studies at the Bear Valley Bible Institute of Denver. These students have received their diplomas and will now take the next step in their journey to full-time ministry. It is exciting to learn of the various areas of work they are now participating in around this country and the world. We ask you to pray for each of these men and their families as they serve the Lord.
I also ask you to be praying for our brother Elangwe Esowe Gregory in Cameroon. This past week his brother collapsed and died on the way to the hospital. He was only 27 years old. It is a very difficult time for the Elangwe family and the church. I know they would appreciate your prayers in remembrance of their family during this time.
News from the work around the world in the Extension Program continues to express growth and development within the Lord’s kingdom. While one child of God leaves this life to move on to his reward, more lost souls are added to the Lord’s church. This is why we are involved in this work. I am thankful God has given us the opportunity to share in this effort together. I hope you know how much your involvement is appreciated.

Reports from the coordinators are now located on the website, under Staff Reports. The address is http://www.wetrainpreachers.com/extension-schools/

Even though several of the schools will be on a short break between quarters, the work continues to grow. I will soon be traveling to participate in two different graduations for schools in West Africa. I look forward to reporting about these special days and the future of the work these men will be entering.
Thank you for your support of this work. I appreciate the fact you are willing to be a tool in the hands of the Almighty God. I pray His richest blessings on you.
