Join us in celebrating the start of a new quarter during opening chapel with the latest class of students in Denver. We are excited to have one of the largest classes of students entering the Bear Valley program to prepare themselves to preach the gospel. Sixteen students, nine who are married with a total of fourteen children. We witnessed an impressive group that stood before the Bear Valley congregation. They begin their two-year journey Monday morning.
This month also brings a new school into the extension program. The Bear Valley Bible Institute-Zambia will open doors in the next few weeks to train men in the Luanshya area of the copper belt of Zambia. We are encouraged by the interest and development of this work. In the weeks ahead we will highlight more about this new location.
Two schools prepare for graduation over the next month. The first is the Southwest School of Evangelism in Ibadan, Nigeria. This week’s report shares information about this upcoming event. Second is the Center for Biblical Studies in Kpalime, Togo. The report out of Togo shares information about the continued growth of the school and church at CBS. The Lord continues to give the increase to the efforts in both of these powerful locations.
Other news from the extension program helps us see the value of the work in each location. The need in Nepal continues to emphasize the urgency of outreach with both physical and spiritual assistance and direction. Additional reports indicate the exciting opportunities that God continues to bless.
