Several areas stand out each week in reporting about the work of the extension program. The first involves the dedication of students who continually share the gospel of Jesus with others. Their efforts are bringing more souls to Christ every week. While reading through this week’s report, please notice the impact this first area is making on the development of the kingdom of our God around the world.
Second, the ingenuity of staff members from each location is amazing to witness. The various ideas presented in how they can further grow the church of our Lord is also making a major difference. The idea of “school” expands in the thinking of these leaders as they work with local congregations for their own school designed to strengthen the knowledge of God’s word among local members and then use as a tool to reach out to nonChristians. The results speak for themselves, as found in the reports below.
Third, the fellowship of working together with others in this training process is exciting. Each week we learn more about ways to strengthen our relationship with each other and our fellowship in working together with God. Here, and only here, do we know that our efforts are blessed. As the program grows more globally, we rely on this fellowship to insure the success of the work in each location.
Fourth, God’s glory is magnified through the students as they prepare themselves for kingdom work and proclaim the message of His indescribable gift. The purpose of Bear Valley’s existence and the joint effort with others around the world is united in this one area: to glorify our God. Please pray with us and for us in pursuing this task.
