Let The Classes Begin...

Ten men began their journey at the Bear Valley Bible Institute in Denver on Friday. The next two years will bring intense study, late nights, and a few challenges. In their own way, each one of them has made sacrifices to be involved in preparing themselves to preach the gospel. We ask you to join us in praying for these men as they begin classes Monday.

The latest news in South America is exciting as Eliezer Perez, a graduate from ITL in Guatemala, is now working as the minister of a new church plant near Asunción. Souls continue to be added to the kingdom in Cameroon, Nigeria, Tanzania, and other countries. The level of enthusiasm increases just by reading the reports that show how God is working through His people.

The success of the extension program is the result of the fellowship / partnership shared and enjoyed among wonderful brethren. BVBID considers it a great privilege to join hands with the dedicated and committed directors, teachers, evangelists, supporters, and students who are involved in this work.

Therefore, we want to take a moment to thank you. Every individual is valuable to the development of the work in the Lord’s kingdom. My prayer is that God will receive the glory He deserves as we labor together in the fields of harvest.

Now on to the other reports...

Final Thoughts
One last thought: the world’s population is increasing with each second of the clock. As well, statistics indicate that 6,480 die every hour. With a world population of more than seven billion people, it is vital to determine how best to fulfill God’s mission of seeking and saving the lost. The extension program is one avenue we are using to meet this challenge. Thank you for sharing in this effort.

God bless
