SOUTHERN INSTITUTE OF BIBLICAL STUDIES
(BEAR VALLEY EXTENSION PROGRAM)
REPORT FOR THE MONTH OFOCTOBER, 2016
We wish to express our heart felt gratitude to the Almighty God for the spiritual blessings He continue to shower upon all of us. On behalf of the director, the teaching staff and the students body, I express our appreciation and gratitude to the sponsors of all the extension schools of the Bear Valley Bible Institute of which Southern Institute Of Biblical Studies (SIBS) is part of it. We pray more blessing for them. So also do we pray for our coordinator, Brother Steve Ashcraft.
I wish to put on record that final payment had been made for a piece of land the school intended to buy. SIBS can now boast of a land of her own. However, documentation is yet to be completed at the Land Commission. Hopeful, students population would be increased when a school building is put up.
The regular students are back from the holidays. Classes began on 10th October with all the twelve students present. Six courses would be taught within this quarter. This is last quarter to end the first year for the regular students. Nevertheless, the week-end classes is on going without break. Their number had increased to fifteen (15) strong young men.
Management would like to congratulate our teaching staff for the able manner and self-less effort they had been contributing of training and building our students up.
Interestingly to note that our students continue to visit sister churches on every Sunday as part of their training. The Lord’s church at Buduburam (a refuge camp) had requested for the services of two of ourstudents namely: Brothers James Borniea and Alexander Opa Zulu. They would visiting the church on every Sunday.
A follow-up program is being put in place so that our past students would be monitored. This program would help management to ascertain the progress of our graduates.
