Graduation 2012...

This is the last week of the quarter at the Bible Institute in Denver and the last week of classes for a group of men who will graduate next Sunday morning. I am constantly amazed how quickly students begin and end their training. It seems like only yesterday these men were beginning their studies and now they are entering the work of our Lord. I am thankful to have been a small part in their training and I look forward to seeing the great service they do in the Kingdom.

May will also bring graduation for others in the Extension Program. Several schools will be graduating men who have been preparing themselves for the Lord’s work over the last two years. We will have reports about these graduations as we receive them in the next few weeks. 

It is an exciting time in the church as we continue to see God’s hand in the growth occurring around the world. The seed is being planted and watered and God is giving the increase. Each week we read about more souls being brought to the Lord through the preaching of the gospel of our Lord.

Now on to the other reports...

Final Thoughts
Thank you for the blessing you are to the work of extension training. It will be a busy week in preparation for graduation, but a constant reminder of the purpose in the work of training men to preach the gospel. Several factors are involved in pulling everything together for the success of the work here and around the world.

We are privileged to share in this effort with some of the most wonderful Christians I have ever known. I count it an honor to be a part of the Lord’s Kingdom and this work. Thank you for having the vision to see the need and benefit of training men to preach.

God bless
