Pray For Students, Lectureship, And Colorado...

Another week in the Extension work around the world demonstrates the greatness of God who continues to give the increase. Souls are being brought to the Lord because of the dedication of wonderful brethren who are sharing the gospel with others. Please join us in praying for their continued health and well being that they may continue to train students to share the gospel.

This Thursday marks the beginning of Bear Valley’s Annual Lectureship. It is a very exciting time as sound brethren from around the country will travel to Denver to share the word of God. The theme of this year’s lectureship is “Majoring in the Minors.” The studies will all be focused on the first six books of the minor prophets. The lessons will be focused on the exegetical and expository lessons from these books to build up those who attend. We encourage you to join us if you can be in the Denver area. The lectureship goes through Sunday. Read more about the lectureship lessons, speakers and times by visiting our website.

We do ask for your prayers on behalf of many who live in the mountains and foothill areas of Colorado. As many of you already know the flooding has been extremely destructive. Many are still without power, threatened with the loss of their homes or personal belongings, several have died, and the danger continues to exist. We are thankful that no one within the school has been directly affected by the flooding, but many others have this past week. Please join us in praying for those who are in these areas. Perhaps the Lord will open a door of opportunity to reach out with the message of Christ.

A final note of thanks: as always, we are mindful continually and thank God daily for the support you provide each of us in this work.
