Summarizing The Work Around The World...

The first week of classes has been completed as a new group of students works to equip themselves in the word of God. These men, and their families, will study for the next two years and enter into the ministry ready to help the church grow. Bear Valley is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with these students and help them on this journey to serve in the Lord’s kingdom.

The work around the world also continues to demonstrate progress in the lives of students who are studying just like the men in Denver. The staff in Gorlovka, Ukraine prepare for a new class of students as they reach the end of their summer break that has been filled with fruitful activity in the Lord’s church.

In West Africa, a recent graduation at the Tamale Institute of Biblical Studies has men now serving throughout the Northern region of Ghana. As well, a new class of students has just started their studies in preparation for the same work. Sixteen men are going through the initial preparations for a two journey where they will learn how to grow the Lord’s kingdom.

Senior students are completing their studies at the West Coast School of Preaching in Takoradi, Ghana. The staff are involved in lessons to strengthen the avenue of prayer in Nigeria.

Students in Cameroon are growing in their outreach as well. Enduring the rainy season has not dampened their spirit of evangelism as they continue to reach out with the gospel. Their studies each week provide them with the knowledge and the heart of God’s mission. 

The work in East Africa continues to grow as well. Plans are being implemented to grow the next class in Arusha, Tanzania to thirty (30) students beginning their studies in January. Between the Swahili and English program at the Andrew Connally School of Preaching, this could be one of the largest intakes in the extension work. 

Ukraine and Nepal are busy recruiting and preparing for a new group of students for the upcoming class.

These are a few of the works featured in this week’s report. The news of Extension Training is changing the world.

Thank you for reading this week’s report. The work is growing strong. Plans are being made for new locations to partner in the work of training preachers / leaders in the Lord’s church. This is all possible because of the great vision and sacrifice made by so many of you. We want to thank you for being involved in this wonderful work. We also want to thank the brethren around the world who allow us to partner with them in training others in the word of God. May our God always be glorified.

God bless
