It’s my hope that this report finds you doing wonderful things for the glory of our Lord in His wonderful kingdom. The first Master’s program class for this first part of the year will start on Monday. We thank Garry Fallis for making the trip to come and teach Church Planting and Christian Education to these men. The next Master’s classes will be in August.
The second-year students return in the coming two weeks and the new first-year students make their first journey to the ACSOP at the same time. We look forward to the beginning of another school year. Much preparation on the part of all the staff and instructors has gone into this event.
I am thankful to be working with a group of people who are dedicated to the spreading of the Gospel through teaching native preachers. In this group Cy Stafford, Daniel Gaines, and Justin Maynard are the American missionaries that teach in the school. The Africans are I, Desdery Massawe, Ahimidiwe Kimaro, Charles Heberth, Godfrey Mngoma, and Josephat.
With God’s help and direction through His Word we look forward to great things in this year. Our teaching schedules in the first quarter will be as follows for the second year; I will be teaching Greek I, Daniel Gaines will teach Church History, Charles Hebert will teach Old Testament 3b (Study of Wisdom Literature: Psalms - Song of Songs), Godfrey Mngoma will teach Life of Christ 3 (The ministry of Jesus), and Josephat Massawe will teach Inter-testamental Period.
On the other hand, to the first year class I will teach How We Got the Bible, Godfrey Mngoma will teachOld Testament, Desdery Massawe will teach Cost of discipleship, Charles Heberth will teach Writing Skills & English, andBernard Kulanga, who is our part time teacher, will teach Personal Evangelism.
Per now brother Cy is missing in the list as it is well known that he has been sick for more than a month now. He has been admitted to the hospital for a serious treatment on fighting leukemia. In our previous reports many prayer requests have been made for him and God has heard because as we speak today his health is improving. Glory is to God for hearing our prayers. Amen.
As always, we love and appreciate each and every one of you. We thank you for your prayers, encouragement, and support. May God bless you for your sacrifices. Amen.
