Set To Begin...

Students arrived in Denver last week and more are scheduled to arrive this week as a new class of students is set to begin their studies at the Bear Valley Bible Institute in Denver. At this point, 18 students were able to get support together to attend classes this fall. There are others who are still working on their support and hope to join this group in just a few weeks. Please pray for these men and their families as they work on preparing themselves for service in the kingdom.

Additionally, students are also beginning and continuing classes in various locations where we are able to partner with the training of students in 14 countries. We are quickly approaching the beginning of the new work in Haiti. This is an exciting work as the Bear Valley Bible Institute of Denver, Freed-Hardeman University, and the brethren in Haiti are coming together to partner in this training effort. We look forward to reporting more about the development of the International School of Theology as classes begin in August.

We are a few weeks away from the annual staff retreat in Denver for the local and extension staff in this work. The time to focus on the development of the program is exciting. The updated reports encourage everyone in the great work of God that we are able to participate in on a global level. Thanks to so many wonderful supporters, this work continues to be a blessing for everyone involved and souls are rejoicing through their obedience to the gospel that is preached. This week’s report shares some incredible information about the growth of the kingdom.
