I have noticed several people expressing their gratitude for specific areas each day during the month of November. We have been blessed with much for which to be thankful and we need to express our gratitude daily. As I continue this month to focus on several areas within the Extension Program, for which I am thankful, this week’s report focuses on the dedicated staff in each location.
I am thankful for the staff of each extension school where Bear Valley is privileged to share in the work of training men to preach. The real nuts and bolts of the entire program hinges on their efforts. I am thankful for their dedication, hard work, soundness, and love for the Lord, His church, and the lost who need Jesus.
These men work tirelessly in maintaining a program of work that requires them to serve as administrators, teachers, cooks, disciplinarians, students, and taxi drivers. They are willing to do whatever it takes to see the success of the gospel going into all the world. They give of their time, talent, energy and financial resources to make sure the students who have been entrusted to their care receive everything they need to succeed.
I am blessed to know these faithful Christian men, privileged to share in this work with them, and honored to tell others about their dedication. When you are praying today, please remember the men who provide the heart and soul of training faithful men to teach others. The fruit of their labor continues to excite me with the opportunities God is providing for the fulfillment of the Great Commission.

As we near the end of the year, I know budget plans are being made for the upcoming year. I also know that our economy has caused many individuals and congregations to reconsider what they are able to do in support of the Lord’s work domestically and internationally. I want to thank all of you for including the Bear Valley program in Denver, as well as, the tremendous generosity you have shown throughout 2012 for the Extension work. I pray God will bless you richly for your generosity and your plans for the work in the year ahead.
Thank you for your dedication to the work of training men to preach the gospel.
