One Incredible Week In Training Preachers...

The report this week is filled with incredible news about the work of extension training. The length of the report is longer than usual, so I will be brief to allow you opportunity to read the exciting news that has been shared this week.

We are finishing up the last week of classes in Denver. Two students, Brad Toy and Chris Krotz, along with their families, will complete their studies and move east. The Toy family will be working in Kentucky and the Krotz family will be in Ohio. Both of these men have done an incredible job during their two years at Bear Valley. They are both good students of God’s word and we have the greatest confidence in their ability to strengthen the church and add souls to the kingdom. We ask you to join us in praying for them as they leave Denver for the greater good of God’s kingdom.

The week ahead will be filled with anxiety and excitement as we continue serving in the work of training preachers. Your hand in the growth and development of this work cannot be overstated. Thank you for your generosity, prayers, participation, and encouragement. We are aware of how much you mean to this program. We pray God will continue to bless you richly for all you do for His church.
