What a great and awesome God we serve! Considering the development of the present schools in the Extension Program, as well as, the potential establishment of future schools, this work gets more exciting by the day. We are seeing requests for additional schools on almost a weekly basis. Some of these requests are not legitimate possibilities, but some hold great promise.
What really makes these possibilities exciting is not adding more schools to the list, but seeing souls added to the kingdom as a result of the work being done within the schools. As you read through the various reports below I believe you will see what I mean. God’s word is being proclaimed, the Lord’s people are being edified, and souls are being won, saved from eternal condemnation. These facts explain why this work is so exciting.
We are also just a little over a week away from on of the most important meetings of the year. Each year in March, all the staff of the Extension program come together to meet for two days in discussion about the various areas of the work. We will be examining what is working well and what is not working well. We will also discuss ways we can improve the overall program of training men to preach in their respective countries. I look forward to sharing more about the result of our time together in the weeks ahead.
I continue to ask you to be praying for the work. Please pray for the men who will be traveling to Denver for this meeting. Pray for the discussion and decisions of this meeting. Also, continue to pray for the work of the program, as we work to fulfill the Great Commission. We know God will bless our efforts in the future just as He has in the past. Our prayer is that all we do will bring glory to Him.
