One Incredible Week...

This has been one incredible week. The news from around the world demonstrates one reason why Extension Training is vital to the fulfillment of the Great Commission. The premise of training men in their own country / culture and their own language, so they might go out and teach their own people the gospel is bearing fruit worldwide.

The reports below will show the fruitful nature of this work even while these men are preparing themselves in classes. The exciting part of this week’s report is the fact this represents only one week. These reports keep coming every week. I love sharing the news and I hope it is just as encouraging to each of you as it is to me. Each week it thrills me to read the news from each of the schools we are privileged to work with in 14 locations. The development of new schools in 2012 will increase the possibilities even more.

I want to encourage each of you to find one person who has not heard about the weekly report and share the report with them this week. If they are interested in continuing to receive it, please forward their e-mail address to me and I will add them to the list and send it each week. The more who are able to read the news, the more we are able to have others praying, and we can raise awareness to the needs of the work.

Thank you for all you do to make this work possible. I hope you know the difference that is being made because of your willingness to help. I give thanks to God for each of you.

Now on to the reports...

Final Thoughts
How about the reports this week? The news continues to be exciting, the growth is incredible, and the year ahead holds promise of even greater progress. If you enjoy reading about this work as much as I do, then you understand why I love reporting each week.

It is so powerful to see God’s hand at work in the lives of our brothers and sisters around the world. Their dedication, along with your prayers and support, humble me. I am thankful to have a small part in working side by side with each of you.

I pray God will continue to bless us all in our service to Him in 2012.

God bless
