New Month And New Reports Brings Great News...

The beginning of a new month always highlights a number of reports from both stateside and international staff. April is off to a great start as the reports from each location share ways God is working in the world. In light of the political turmoil in Russia / Ukraine, it is encouraging to see the reports from Howell Ferguson and Dennis Sopelnik concerning the continued efforts of training students in Gorlovka.

The growth of the work in Paraguay is also encouraging. The development of the church and training students who are actively involved in the church is just the beginning. Prospects for a new class of students in 2015 is already in the plans. The next class appears to have the potential of being double the size of the current class. Our prayers for the Asunción Bible Academy involve continued growth and excitement as they strengthen students for kingdom work.

Students in Denver make their way to their graduation date in May. The students approaching graduation are a wonderful class of men that will soon enter the work of the kingdom. We look forward to providing more information that features these men and where they will be serving for the Lord’s church. Other students will be graduating this summer also in several locations and we will provide information about their work. Please pray for these students and the work they will be carrying forth in the months ahead.
