Graduation Sunday! Seven men completed their two-year course of studies at the Bear Valley Bible Institute in Denver. The graduation banquet was one of the finest, with men who spoke about their journey and shared their appreciation. Wesley Walker spoke to those who were gathered for this occasion and delivered a powerful message to encourage these men in the need to be motivated by the glory of God to fulfill the task before them. The night was incredibly special for all who shared in this event.
Graduation was also scheduled for the school in Ukraine. Amidst the challenges they face, we are encouraged by the dedication of these students to complete their studies. We are excited for them and pray God’s provisions for their life in service to His kingdom. We hope to have pictures and information in next week’s report. Please pray for the brethren in this war-torn country for the challenges before them.
News from other locations around the world indicate the power of God at work in blessing the message preached. The willingness, sacrifice, and dedication of these men in their preparation for preaching the gospel, encouraging faithful brethren, restoring the erring, and lifting up the fallen is an indication of why it is such an honor and privilege to fellowship with these men in their journey.
We appreciate your prayers on behalf of this work, as well as, for the various components and complexities of the program. Remember Keith Kasarjian as he works with the brethren in Nepal on ways to aid in the relief efforts needed for the brethren and people of Nepal. Please remember the graduates in Denver and Ukraine as they enter ministry. Also, we ask you to pray for the direction of this work in the months ahead.
