Two New Schools In The Extension Program...

Two new schools are set to begin classes in the next few months. Approval was recently given by the Bear Valley elders after learning of the potential in each location. The first school is set to open up in Mbanga, Cameroon. Mbanga is located in the French speaking section of Cameroon and the director of the program, brother Ititi, is a graduate from the Cameroon Bible Institute of Wotutu. We know the training he received at CBIW was a strong foundation for the continued evangelistic fervor needed to expand training and outreach into other sections of this country.

The second school is located on the opposite side of Africa in the country of Malawi. We are excited to partner with the school in Mzuzu, Malawi, located in the northern section of the country. Finalization of the details for the program in Mzuzu are nearly complete. We know the direction of this program will also follow the mission of reaching out with the gospel to those without Christ.

The potential of these two schools adds approximately 35-40 new students to the overall extension program. We ask you to pray with us as we get these two schools launched in the coming months. We also ask you to pray for us as we look at additional locations to extend the program of training preachers in other countries around the world. With God, we know all things are possible and your prayers make a difference.

PRAYERS OF THANKS: A few weeks back, we asked everyone to pray for Kim Kasarjian because initial reports indicated the possibility of leukemia. After a bone marrow biopsy last Tuesday, the Kasarjian’s received word that Kim does not have leukemia. We thank our God for answering prayers and we thank each of you for praying on behalf of Kim and her family. We serve an awesome God.

Now on to this week’s incredible reports...
