Students returned to classes over the past week in Denver after a time of research and celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday. These men now finish up the last two weeks of the quarter before the end of the year. The quarter went by quickly, and these men are ready for a brief end-of-the-year break before hitting it hard for another quarter of studies in January. The first week of January will introduce several new students to the Bear Valley program. We ask you to pray for those who are headed this way to begin their two-year journey.
Reports below indicate another powerful week for extension training. From Africa and Ukraine to Paraguay, South America, staff and students alike are affecting souls for eternity. Among all the areas of training and outreach around the world, we are thankful to partner with these men in the development of training preachers. The opportunities God continues to provide make for an exciting program.
As we close out the last few weeks of the year, we anticipate the exciting news of a year-end report that shares news about all that was accomplished in 2015. We also look forward to the continued development of the extension program in the year ahead. With the development of new schools in 2016, the program is taking shape in reaching our goals for training men to preach the gospel on a global scale.
We appreciate your prayers and support of this work. We pray you are encouraged by all we do together for the cause of our Lord.
