After a week of campaigns around the country, students from the Denver campus enjoy a break week before returning to classes on October 19th. Initial reports indicate the campaigns were successful in reaching out to thousands of homes with many opportunities to share God’s word. We hope to provide more information in the weeks ahead after students return to Denver. We trust their efforts to encourage the church and plant the seed of God’s word will prove fruitful.
Next quarter is number two for incoming students in Denver. They did well in their first quarter and we are excited to see them continue this journey. Sadly, this will be the last quarter for two of our students as they reach the end of the journey. Gary Pollard and Jesse LeMay will complete their studies in December and begin a new focus in the study of missions. We look forward to seeing them build upon their foundation for ministry work in the extension program.
The extension schools continue to report about the progress students achieve as they study from God’s word and share the good news with others. The reports below also share news about students returning from campaigns and heading back to the classroom. The ACSOP in Tanzania completed their annual Leadership Conference with great success. Visiting speakers from the US, Cambodia, and other nations in Africa all came together to study this vitally needed subject.
Students in Haiti began their second year of studies. It is amazing how quickly the first year passed by, and students continue their preparations. Information about their recent outreach activities demonstrates God’s fruitful increase. Read more in the report below. Other reports provide news of God’s providential work through sharing the Gospel around the world.
URGENT PRAYER REQUEST: We learned over the weekend of a violent tragedy in Haiti. Sister Roberta Edwards was killed by several men who shot her in the vehicle she was driving and kidnapped a four year old boy who stayed at the orphanage sister Edwards managed. Please remember to pray for her family and the situation surrounding this young boy and the other children affected by this incident.
