We are excited to announce that Bear Valley is connecting with a new school in Ghana. The Southern Institute of Biblical Studies (SIBS) begins classes on February 12, 2014. This new school is located in Nsawam / Doboro. Administration is reviewing applications and students are preparing to begin classes next month. Plans are to host 20 students in this first class.
The opportunity to further train students in West Africa is a blessing to the Lord’s Kingdom and we are thankful to partner with the men at Nsawam / Doboro in this task. Please pray for the staff and students in this new school. Pray for the growth of the program and that God will abundantly bless the efforts of this work. We will share more details in the weeks ahead as we move closer to the beginning of the school.
Classes in Denver are now in their second week of this quarter as a new class of students enters the program to prepare themselves to preach the gospel. The last two quarters of this year for the seniors is also exciting as they make plans for their respective areas of ministry. Most of these men will serve congregations around the United States. One student plans to work in Malawi, which we will share more about at a later date. Remember to pray for these men also as they finish their studies.
News from around the Extension Program is always powerful as we see lives changing. The students studying and preaching the gospel, along with reading about souls brought to the Lord, brings a level of excitement to the work that is worth sharing. Please share the report each week with other individuals and congregations who are interested in knowing more about the growth of the Lord’s church.
Now on to the other reports...

A final note of thanks to you for every area you are involved in this work. Without each one of you this work would not exist, and we never want there to be a moment when we do not express our gratitude. Thank you for being friends of the Bible Institute and the work of Extension Training. We love and appreciate you, always.
