Dear brothers in Christ
It is a pleasure for me to write to you today to share this grace that the Lord grants us in the work of the Lord at the Bear Valley Bible Institute in Kpalime (Togo).
We have just started the courses for the second term of the sixth class of which the number of students is twenty (20). They follow the courses attentively and minutely as some come from the denominations and want to understand very well the courses
Second quarter courses:
1. The Christian home
2. Christianity without denomination
3. Spiritual maturity
4. A study on sin
5. The cult of the New Testament
6. Christian influence
Classes open each morning from 7:30 am through devotion which each student on the “student program” or “time table” passes on to others to preach and the others follow with attention after a teacher does the remarks on mistakes made, so every student has his turn
Classes: the timetable (10 hours a day except Wednesday 6 hours only during the morning).
Morning: 4 hours of lessons
Classes begin at 8:00 am to 10:00 am and the pose or recreation: 10:00 am to 10:30 am, the second part from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm.
Evening: 2 hours
Classes from 3.00 pm to 4.00 pm and one hour from 4.00 pm to 4.15 pm, the second part from 16.15 pm to 17.15 pm
Evangelism: the teacher’s staff has decided that every Friday students come down to the streets, houses, villages for the distribution of biblical booklets and to do personal studies with people who give them time. They go in groups of five (5) under the supervision of a teacher or an active evangelist. We want that each student can do the work of evangelization like personal work at his place. In May, their fate for evangelism gave one baptized.
Challenges: a new congregation established in the village of AKATA. We sent the students to do the practice in this village. For a whole day they were in the houses accompanied by evangelists two by two for an efficient work. At the end of the evangelization campaign there are 4 baptized people. So after doing the theory and also do the practices.
May the peace and grace of our Jesus Christ fill all his blessings for the support you bring to the Institute.
