The Bear Valley Lectures begin this week in Denver. These lectures have proven to be so powerful in the past and I know this year will be no exception. With all the negativity that exists in our world, and far too often within the church, the theme and focus of this year’s lectureship is What’s Right With The Church? Men from all over the country will be traveling to Denver to participate in this year’s lectureship and it promises to be great.
If you would like to listen to the lectures this year, a website link exists where you can listen to the recordings. Remember these lessons are not available live, but after they have been uploaded to the website you can listen to them at: /chapelcast/. I encourage you to listen to these positive lessons dealing with What’s Right With The Church? This link will also allow you opportunity to listen to the various lessons from each day’s chapel at the Bible Institute.
In addition to the announcement about the lectureship, this week’s report shares news from around the world where the work is exciting and growing. The work of training men to preach and seeing their involvement in evangelizing people in their own countries is still the most exciting work I know.
Thank you for taking time to read through the reports each week. I know you share the same excitement I do when it comes to seeing the powerful ways the gospel is transforming the lives of those who have heard the message. It is thrilling to know there are men around the world who have given their lives to prepare themselves to take this message and share it with others.

I pray for you every day.
