After an incredible weekend of lectures, the past week settled into a more normal routine of students back in class. The week ahead brings an end to the first quarter of this school year and students are preparing for finals and then off to campaigns around the country. The opportunity to put into practice what the students learn during classes provides valuable experience for them and it brings a benefit to the congregations where they serve. The greatest benefit is that souls are taught the gospel and given an opportunity to become Christians.
As hard as it is to believe, we are only three months away from the start of another year. These next few months are critical to the implementation of plans for developing the future of extension training. A number of new locations are being considered for 2015 and we look forward to sharing news of their beginning in the months ahead. We ask that you pray with us and for us in the success of this work.
News from several extension locations is encouraging. There is an immeasurable joy that exists in reading about those who become Christians, the restoration of those who left the church, and Christians who are built up in the faith. The increase God gives continues to make this work worth the time and effort given to it. Thank you for your partnership in this global work.
