Students in Denver returned to the classroom after a few days for research and preparation for midterm exams. We continue to be encouraged by the progress of the new class as they move through their first quarter of studies.
The week ahead brings the excitement of Bear Valley’s annual lectureship. Finishing up the second half of the Minor Prophets, speakers from across the country will travel to Denver this week to present exegetical, expository, and topical lessons gleaned from the last six books of the Old Testament. Each lesson will be uploaded to the website. Please visit Bear Valley’s website to learn more about this year’s lectureship at http://www.wetrainpreachers.com/2014-lectureship/.
Along with the lectureship this week, everyone is invited to the lectureship banquet Friday night. This special evening provides an opportunity to enjoy a wonderful meal, share in the best of Christian fellowship, and learn about the progress of the Bear Valley Bible Institute International in Denver and the extensions around the world.
Speaking of extensions, this week’s report shares news from several locations. As you read through the news from each reporting location, we pray you are encouraged and excited about the progress. God continues to bless the work and we are thankful for the opportunity to partner with you in this effort.
Now on to this week’s incredible reports...
