Greeting from your fellow laborers at the Bear Valley Bible Institute- Liberia, hoping all is well with you and your families in the Lord's name. It is ways a great joy to share with you the many happenings in my country and from the Bear Valley school in Liberia.
After a three weeks break our students returned to the campus on the 17th of March in a very high spirit appreciating the school for the level of education imparted to them because their performances and contributions back to their local congregations and other places have helped the congregations and many individuals greatly. The students reported seven (7) baptism in all from the work that they were involved in.
Meanwhile, our regular classes for our last and final quarter has started with all the students present and all our instructors coming on their appointment time.
STEVEN VISIT TO LIBERIA
On Tuesday April 28, 2018, brother Steven Ashcraft and I returned to Liberia after the opening ceremony of the new school in Guinea. He spent three days in Liberia helping us understand what is required by Bear Valley and how to prepared, keep and have a very good record system for the sake of the future and accountability. There were also discussions about the completion of the students and the graduation of the first batch of our students.
Brother Steven also donated some very beautiful neck ties to all the students and Instructors which we appreciated do much.
After Brother Steven left, the instructors gathered for a meeting, in which we discussed the progress of the school and each students over the period of time. We also discussed about the upcoming graduation and the intake of the new students. It was a very rewarding meeting because great ideas were brought forth that will help with the betterment of the school. We also set up from among the instructor and students a planing committee to plan the graduation.
As part of our plans to reach out to many with the gospel, the school has decided to carried out five (5) extra campaigns excluding the four (4) required campaigns of Bear Valley this year. We have already effected three successful campaigns this year that has resulted in twenty seven (27) baptism and two new congregations establishment.
CONCLUSION AND APPRECIATIONS
We want to thank all of you so very much for all you love and partnership toward the work and growth of the Lord's church in Liberia and Africa at large. Thank you so much and may the good Lord keep using you for the sake of His work in Jesus Name.
