As we make our way forward in this first quarter in Denver, freshmen students are settling into the routine and working on assignments designed to prepare them for the work of ministry. The week ahead for these students will provide them with a short break over the holiday weekend that allows them an opportunity to do the additional research required for their assignments in all six classes.
The reports from the extension locations this week are powerful. As you read through the reports, our prayer is that you are encouraged with the number of souls who were added and restored to the kingdom. From the reports this week, if the math is correct, there were 129 baptisms and 51 restorations. How can it get any more exciting than to read news of this nature? Awesome! Our God is Great!
Additionally, the school in Nigeria graduated another group of men headed into the harvest to share the good news of Jesus. The results of their outreach while in school indicates a powerful beginning. Graduation at the Southwest School of Evangelism in Ibadan, Nigeria is coupled with their annual lectureship, which this year focused on “The Mission Of The New Testament Church.”
Also, a new class of students begin their journey in Cambodia. The program at IBI in Siem Reap will implement a new curriculum specifically designed for the work in Cambodia and the challenges they face living in a Buddhist culture. Staff and students alike are excited to see the development of the curriculum, which also includes training in areas that will help in the sustainability of these students when they graduate.
One final piece of exciting news: a new school opens its doors this week in Luanshya, Zambia. Students arrived last week to begin classes and we look forward to sharing reports about the program in Zambia as it develops. The foundation is in place and students are ready to begin. Please pray for these men as this new program starts.
