The Bear Valley Bible Institute is proud to share in the work of training men to preach the gospel. Over the past 47 years more than 1,000 men have attended the Bear Valley program and the school has produced preachers who have taken the gospel to nearly every corner of the world. It was a special day to share in the graduation ceremony of another great class of students, many of which will now enter into full time ministry.
Fourteen years ago the Bible Institute began partnering with congregations and various works around the world to participate in the same task of preparing men for the work of ministry. It has been an incredible privilege to work side by side with those who are laboring diligently at a number of different mission points. Thank you for the tireless effort you put forth to evangelize the lost, encourage Christians in faithfulness, and train men each day to fulfill their ministry. You deserve far more credit than you receive.
Several of these schools are working to complete classes for their upcoming graduations. There is something special about reading reports from locations where the results are the same. A number of men are stepping into the work of the Kingdom. As with all of these men, we ask you to pray for them as they fight the good fight of faith.
It has been an exciting week in the extension program, so on to the other reports...

Thank you for reading the reports this week. I am so encouraged with the development of work. I am also thankful to each of you for your continued support of this work. You are incredible. The sacrifices you make help keep this work going and our God is glorified.
I pray you have a great week.
