One of the exciting opportunities when traveling to the various extension locations is to participate in graduation ceremonies. Last Friday evening, the International Bible Institute of Siem Reap hosted their third graduation. Eleven students graced the stage to receive their certificate as family and friends honored them for their accomplishments. The joy and excitement shared in this event is a small glimpse into the reasons extension training is making a difference around the world. A full report will be shared in the weeks ahead from the director of the program at IBISR.
Over the next two months, several other locations will host graduation ceremonies for students who are completing their studies. The Southwest School of Evangelism in Ibadan, Nigeria will host graduation later in August and the Center for Biblical Studies in Kpalime, Togo will host their graduation ceremony the first week in September. Other locations are nearing this great event also and we ask you to pray for the graduates, their work in the kingdom, and for the incoming students who begin their journey.
Speaking of a new journey: As we approach August, a new group of students in Denver prepare for their first day of class next week. The anticipation of that first day of class is thrilling for incoming students. They are filled with wonder as to what the courses will be like and what they will learn over the next two years in preparation for preaching the gospel. The road ahead for them seems like an eternity as they begin, but the next two years will go by incredibly fast. Please remember to pray for these men and their families.
