Graduation And Growth In Extension Training...

Graduation seems to be the most common thread in the extension program this week. Recently students graduated in Honduras, Ukraine, and India. Reports below provide details of the various graduation events, along with pictures of the students. There are times it is difficult to fully understand or recognize how great an accomplishment it is for these students to dedicate themselves to two full years of intense study. We are encouraged by their efforts.

The work these students have been involved with during their time in school, as well as, the work they are entering continues to demonstrate the wonderful hand of God in giving the strength and increase for the work. Your prayers on behalf of these students is greatly appreciated. Remember them and their families as they strive to serve the Lord.

Additional reports share information about the progress of students throughout the remainder of the schools globally. Some students are enjoying a summer break, while others continue their studies in the word of God. The credit goes to staff within each location. They have given their lives to the task of preparing students to lead throughout the various countries where they live and serve in the Lord’s kingdom.

Credit also goes to each of you for the time, energy, talent, and financial support provided to sustain the work of extension training. Thank you for your dedication to the Lord, His church, the lost of the world, and the work of training preachers.
