The Kingdom Of God Is For The Brave...

The statement that titles this report is one made by a graduate from ITL, Eliezer, who spoke in the Sunday morning lesson at the Linda Vista congregation. He said this in the invitation to his lesson as he appealed to the 300+ gathered for the last session of this year’s lectureship. Four responded to be baptized and one for prayers. It was an amazing event to hear the lesson and witness the response.

The fifth annual ITL lectureship provided a great weekend of lectures from several speakers. The lectureship was attended by 18 congregations around Guatemala and members of the church from four different countries. The focus of the lectureship this year was “End Times, A Study of Eschatology.” Lessons addressed every facet of the subject and provided participants opportunity to learn the depths of God’s word on these matters.

Events over the weekend began Thursday night with the Presidential banquet. The excitement of the evening was the pinning of students who have completed their first year of studies at ITL. Additionally, Saturday’s events were capped off with an acknowledgement of past and present students of the Saturday program and the full-time program at ITL. One of the joys of witnessing these events was to learn of the faithful service of every student and graduate from the program.

Apart from the incredible activities of the weekend, other locations share news about God’s blessing the work of the staff and students around the world.
