Entering the second week of 2011 raises one question - how can it get any better than this? The reports about the beginning of the school in Cameroon are wonderful.
Josh Austin, who serves as the new coordinator for the work in Cameroon, recently returned from the grand opening of the 15th Extension for the Bear Valley Bible Institute of Denver. You will find his report in the section under Coordinator Updates below.
In addition to the beginning of a new school, all of the other schools (as we reported last week) are getting a great start to the new year. The work of training men to preach the gospel is exciting and we are so thankful for all of you who help make it possible.
2011 will be a year of reporting on the progress of each work and updating each of you on the further development of the work.
Reports from the coordinators are now located on the website, under Staff Reports. The address is /extension-schools/
Let Go Of 2010: Howell Ferguson provides a report about the work of letting go of last year.
Committed To Cameroon: Read Josh's report about his first experience in the Extension Program here.
Gary Fallis and Jerry Bates will leave this Thursday, January 13th for Nepal and then on to Visakhapatnam, India to work with the extension schools in each location. Please remember them in their travels.
One Grand Opening: Elangwe Esowe Gregory, Director for the Cameroon Bible Institute provided his report about the first week of the Bible Institute. It is encouraging to see how excited everyone is about the work. I know the future will hold great reports about the development of this work. In fact, as you will read, the reports are already awesome, as souls are being added to the kingdom.
The day started so beautifully with nearly 8 inches of snow in Denver. Finally, winter has arrived, or so it would seem. When I think about living in Denver, I have to say I do love the snow. It is so beautiful.
As we close for the day, let me say how much I love and appreciate all of you. Your work is tireless and your encouragement is overwhelming. Thank you for all you continually do to make this work possible and successful. I pray God will bless you richly throughout 2011.
