Catholic Priest to Attend CBS
Barry Baggot informed CBS that he has a prospect in Burundi who has expressed the desire to attend CBS. This man as I understand is a Catholic Priest and a lecturer in one of the Universities.

Students prepare for final exams
CBS students can be seen in this two pictures seriously preparing for their final exams in August. They were divided into two groups completing a project work.

Nyiveme Church of Christ organized a 3 day seminar on Marriage and the Christian Home
Some of the topics discussed during the seminar included: preparation for marriage, responsibilities of husbands and wives, who is the head of the home, dealing with in-laws and step children, and resolving marital conflict.

The 11 resource persons included: Nine students, one instructor and one former student.

There were about 80 in attendance during each session.

Mr. Aluka, until recently, was a member of the Jehovah Witnesses and the director of a college in Hanyigba, near Kpalime.

Brother Aluka has been using his influence as the director of the college to lead other teachers and students to study with the Church of Christ. He has been able to convince 13 of his friends from the Jehovah Witnesses to start a regular class with Cephas, the principal of CBS. It is our prayer that God will touch their hearts to respond to the gospel soon.

Meeting with students
During my recent visit to Kpalime, I was informed that the students would like to meet with me. I knew what their concerns were prior to the meeting. When the time finally came and I walked into the classroom, I saw some signs of mixed feelings written all over their faces. They were happy to be completing their two years of study, but afraid of what the future holds for them. I remembered the disciples asking Christ ‘we have given up everything to follow you, but now what is in it for us?’

One student said when he informed his wife that his support ends after the graduation, she quickly took the kids and left for her parents. I had to encourage them to ‘hang in there’ until such a time that God responds to their impending plight. Brethren, it is not easy looking into the faces of these men and telling them that I don’t know how they will survive with their wives and kids. Some have left the denomination, their jobs and their sources of income to spend two years to prepare to preach.

However, I informed them that we shall assist them in any church planting exercise if they call on CBS to do so.
