UPDATE: We received news this week about Cy Stafford’s progress as he continues with physical therapy. The plan is to get his strength built up enough to receive future chemo-therapy treatments. His progress has amazed doctors, but we know it is the power of an almighty God who answers prayer. Please continue to pray for our dear brother, friend, and fellow-worker in the kingdom. If you know Cy, you know how desperately he desires to be in the field serving in kingdom work. Continue to pray for Stephanie and their entire family.
Students from Denver participate this week in campaigns. These campaigns range from Denver to the Cayman Islands to the Kayenta, Arizona. Students focus their attention on reaching out to these various areas to share the gospel, encourage the church where they serve, and bring glory to God through their efforts. We love hearing about the results of their time when they return and begin classes again. Please pray for them during this time.
Extension news from around the world shares exciting information about the development of the program. We received reports this week from Togo, Ukraine, Tanzania, Cameroon, Paraguay, and Nigeria. As you have time, please read through the reports and pray for the people who diligently serve in each location. Pray about the circumstances they face, the lives that are touched, and the future of their outreach. We believe you will be encouraged by what you read this week and every week.
As the design of training preachers progresses in Denver and around the world, we find the power of God at work. The development of these students, who prepare themselves for the work of ministry, continues to shape the direction of souls on an eternal basis. The opportunity to share in this effort and participate in the preaching of the gospel cannot be overstated. The biblical example and the current progress demonstrates the hand of God. Thank you.

We express our gratitude to God each day for your involvement in this program. Without your participation in the work, we would be unable to affect the lives of those who need the gospel. The souls added to the kingdom and the congregations that are uplifted all point to the value of the extension program. The partnership is beautiful and exciting. Thank you.
