The week ahead is a very special week for the staff in Denver and the extension program. Next weekend most staff will make their way to Denver for our annual retreat. This is such a wonderful time of fellowship. We enjoy hearing reports about the work in each of the locations where we are partnering with great brethren in the program. Each evening we hear lessons that are structured around a theme to encourage us in God’s word. We sing together, laugh together, cry together, and come away with a better understanding of God’s greatness and blessing in our lives.
Since this is the introduction to the 50th year of the Bear Valley Bible Institute’s training of preachers, this retreat is even more special as we kick off this great celebration of achievement. God continues to bless the work in Denver and the opportunities to expand this work in seventeen locations around the world. Working together in the task of sharing the gospel is reaching new heights and we are thankful to have a part in it.
The various reports demonstrate the ways God continues to work in and through each of the students who are involved. They are prepared to teach the word and they go out with the message to the people where they live. The message is being heard and people are responding to it. This is what the extension program is all about.
We ask you to be praying for those who are traveling this week to share in this event. We also ask you to pray for each of the schools and the incredible work they are doing “day in and day out.” These are the true spiritual warriors that keep all of us excited about the work. God continues to give the increase as we work side by side in His kingdom.
Now on to the other reports...

A final word of thanks to each of you for your participation in one of the greatest works on earth. The partnerships that have come together to make this work possible is encouraging and exciting. By our working together, God will continue to bless our effort to His glory and the growth of His kingdom. Thank you.
