Moving quickly into the new year is a reminder of the exciting possibilities involved in training men to preach and teach the word of God. This week begins a new class of students at the Denver location of the Bear Valley Bible Institute. These men and their families are beginning a two year journey in preparing themselves for full-time service in the Lord’s kingdom. The first few days of class are always interesting as they receive assignments. The incredible workload introduces a new level of stress for these students, but they quickly adjust and discipline themselves to the required work that will guide their path for the next two years.
A new class of students also began their journey in Cameroon. Twenty-two men have dedicated themselves to the study of God’s word for the next two years. Based on the history of the work in Cameroon, these men will actively participate in weekend evangelism, preaching, teaching, and quarterly campaigns. Their influence each week is changing the eternal destiny of hundreds, if not thousands, of souls.
Additionally, reports from other schools around the world indicate the great ways God is blessing their efforts in the kingdom. The first graduation is less than a month away for the Asunción Bible Academy in Paraguay. We are all encouraged by the plans for the next class, as they are growing in number. Other reports share news about their specific development in preparing men to share the gospel of Jesus.
