The week ahead brings most of the extension staff to Denver for an annual “spring” meeting. We will discuss numerous areas concerning each school in the program and plans for the future development of the work. Examining ways to improve preacher training around the world is the core purpose of this week’s meeting. Our desire is to provide a program of excellence, and we plan to develop the Bear Valley program into the premier preacher training program in the brotherhood. Please pray for us as we discuss the growth and development of the work.
Reports this week represent the development of the work. From Haiti to Nepal to several countries in Africa, all the reports share news about God’s increase around the world. The news of souls added to the kingdom is exciting and it indicates why this work is so important. Considering the influence on eternity, we find the power of the gospel that God intended for the salvation of those who obey Him.
Students in Denver also continue their preparation for preaching the gospel. In a few weeks, they will complete this quarter of studies and participate in a campaign. A number of campaigns are scheduled that will take these men all across the country. We pray their efforts in sharing the gospel in each location will be fruitful.
