The week beings with wonderful news from several locations. Sunday completed a week in the Future Preacher’s Training Camp of Denver. Thirty-six young men from around the country came to Bear Valley to learn about the art and science of preaching. Based on the reports provided by various staff members of the camp, the future of the church is good hands as the heart and ability of these young men was demonstrated in their preaching.
One of the reports this week from India also indicates similar experiences, as John Dean relates the success of the Future Preacher’s Training Camp in Visakhapatnam. The interest of young men from both sides of the globe is exciting because their present and future activity in the church will make an eternal difference in the lives of those they teach. Let us pray for these young men that God will help bring more who will prepare for the future of preaching.
The design of both programs is to strengthen the interest of young men in the Word of God and encourage them to consider attending the Bible Institute in the future. We encourage you to think about those you know in the congregations where you worship who might be interested in attending FPTC and preparing to preach in the future.
The news we receive each week is always encouraging. The growth of the kingdom is seen in every report. Please read through each report and pray for the work God is blessing in preacher training.
Now on to the other reports...

We are always mindful and appreciative of every person who is involved in this work.

Thank you all.
