UPDATE: The latest news on Cy Stafford continues to be encouraging. Cy is currently involved with physical therapy to get his strength up so he might continue to receive chemotherapy. We ask you to continue praying for our brother that God will help him recover that he might do the things he loves most. Thank you.
By the end of the week, students in Denver will complete the first quarter of 2016 and the third quarter of the school year. As they complete their assignments and take final exams, they will embark on several campaigns around Denver and other parts of the country. Campaigns afford them an opportunity to share what they learned over the last few months and, once the campaign is finished, they will have a week to recuperate and let their minds rest until they begin the last quarter of the school year. Please pray for the efforts of the campaigns, but also for potential students who consider how they can attend Bear Valley as a part of the new class in August.
Reports from various extension schools also indicate an exciting week of training and outreach. Reading through the news each week about the efforts of these men, who share the good news with such excitement, encourages all of us. We encourage you to read through this week’s news and continue to pray for the work of these men.
New schools will soon be added to the extension family. We anticipate the new school in Fiji to open in a few months, once all the governmental regulations are met. We ask you to pray for the people in Fiji, as they recover from the affects of one of the largest hurricanes on record. In hindsight, we feel it a blessing that the school was delayed in starting while the island areas recover.
Plans for the new school in Zimbabwe are in place and it looks like students will begin in April. We ask you to pray for them as they begin training. Also, remember the brethren in New Zealand while final preparations are made to open the doors to train a good number of men from two locations in this wonderful country.
With schools now in Malawi, Zambia, and new schools preparing to open in Zimbabwe, Fiji, and New Zealand, we are excited about the growing interest in extension training. Please join us in prayer about the growth of the work in the year ahead.

We consider it a blessing to work with you in this endeavor.
