Planning For 2013...

With only a few weeks left in 2013, a number of us are looking to the year ahead and making plans connected to the specific goals we want to achieve. Within the Extension Program we are looking to achieve goals on an individual school basis and for the overall program. We are truly living in an exciting time as the year end report indicated last week. If you have not read through that report, I urge you to take a look at the information provide by Keith Kasarjian. 

Each week we want to share with you more of the plans we are working on to achieve the goals of the Bear Valley Bible Institute. These plans are only possible because of the dedicated Christians who are involved at every level in the extension work. We are thankful for the overseeing congregations we partner with to train God’s faithful to share the message of Jesus Christ around the world. We are also thankful for the privilege of working beside the administration at each extension location. Our desire is to align our plans with theirs as we move into the year(s) ahead.

 Our requests to you, as you read this report, involve the following: 

1) Continue to pray for the staff of the Extension Program, as well as, the overall work as we move forward. 

2) Share each week’s report with others who are interested in joining us in this effort. If you will send their e-mail address we will add them to the weekly list.

3) If you are working with a congregation that is involved in a specific mission point, and they might be ready to take a step toward training men to preach in that area, we would love an opportunity to visit with you about how we could work together in greater ways to reach their mission goals.

4) We also need financial partners who are willing to share in providing for the costs of preparing students to go into fields that are “white for the harvest” to preach the gospel message to their own people.

Please consider how you can partner with us in this noble effort of training the faithful of God to fulfill the Great Commission.
