Just last week, I decided to take a few minutes to look on the map of East Africa and see how much God has accomplished. Many places in Tanzania, Kenya, and Uganda have had an opportunity to hear the true gospel of Christ. Thereafter, the one true church of our Lord was planted in their areas through the Andrew Connally School of Preaching (An extension of Bear Valley Bible Institute International). The truth of the matter is many of our graduates are doing an amazing job preaching and teaching to the lost souls. For the past few years there have been many new congregations of the Lord’s church and a large number of faithful Christians because of the effort of the school here.
For the last two months I traveled around the country visiting and recruiting new students for the next class. I realized that the school, as a tool, is doing much good in preparing faithful men who will eventually go back to their native lands, some of which do not have any congregations of the Lord’s church, and plant the one true church. I want to assure you that though you are far in distance and we can’t see each other by our physical eyes, you are part of the BIG team which is making sure the BIG picture of discipleship is fully achieved before the Lord comes back in His second coming. “And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” (2 Timothy 2:2). Your prayers and financial support towards what is being accomplished here are very important, and we want to let you know that we fully appreciate you for all that you do for the Kingdom.
Our student’s outreach program with the congregations around the area has fully begun this quarter. And one of our top priorities this time is to register as many new Bible correspondence students as we can for the glory of the Lord. This has been one of the powerful methods of reaching many with the gospel of Christ here in Arusha. Making these congregations mature and fruitful is something that pleases the Lord most. Our students have established many good Bible classes in the last quarter and as a result have converted many souls to these congregations. Together, with this program we are encouraging our students and preachers to make sure the converted souls are intact. All these congregations confess a totally positive change and spiritual uplifting through this program. To God be the glory, Amen.
Thank you again for your support and prayers as we all continue working for Him and the Kingdom.
