Amazing would be the best word to describe the work of God’s people around the world. Reading about the ways God is working in and through His faithful children is encouraging, uplifting, and exciting. Just knowing we have an opportunity to share in the activities of these brothers and sisters is a blessing. If you are reading this and unaware of the reason for using this word, please take a few moments and read through the reports below.
A new quarter begins at the Bear Valley Bible Institute as students return from campaigns and a short break. The campaigns this quarter involved several locations throughout the U.S., and one group traveled to Guatemala to participate in a campaign with the church in Cobán where one of the instructors of ITL, in Guatemala City, serves. We will hear reports later this week about the activities of all the campaigns, and will share more next week.
The weeks continue to roll by quickly and we are approaching the last two months of the year. We are in the process of gathering information to share later this year about the growth and development of the entire program. We look forward to sharing this information to give you a perspective of how your involvement in extension training is making a difference and changing the world, one soul at a time.
We ask each of you to continue praying for this good work. Pray that God will not only bless those who are involved, but pray for Him to give strength, endurance and courage to the teachers and students who are involved in the process of preparing to be instruments in the hand of the Almighty Creator who chose the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.
