Student body growth in Trinidad

The school has renewed its determination to return to the path of evangelism. This emphasis has created a stir with the introduction of “TS ops” earlier this year. To date, the school has been involved in at least five gospel meetings and several revivals. Several souls were won and some restoration is happening. The passion of the students and teachers is outstanding as it is quite normal to hear about contacts made and interesting encounters in the field. 

We now have an amazing nine students in first year and six in second year! This makes our population fifteen!! We are so excited about this growth as we aim to have a complete set of twenty regular in the classroom. 

Our future student list is also growing as young boys and girls are expressing their desire to come in the next few years.

Interestingly, we launched our TSOP Online program through links with World Video Bible School. We now have Fifteen registered students. This includes one from Florida and another from Romania! 

Our Saturday school hosted a two part series on church financial accounting. This was taught by brother Shammeen Mohammed. Those who attended truly appreciated the initiative as some congregations lack the skill set that is so necessary.

We launched our new logo. This will be printed on shirts for when we make formal visits. We are hoping that lapel pins will be donated to help promote our school.

Visiting brethren from Canada were invited to participate in chapel. They were visiting to attend the funeral of sister Patsy Babooram who passed away on Monday 3rd September. She was the dormitory supervisor for several years. Her grand daughter’s fiancé spoke in chapel encouraging students to hold on.

Brotherly,

Graduation in Trinidad

Last year the Trinidad School of Preaching (in existence for over 40 years) and Bear Valley joined hands to raise the bar in that good school. The current faculty has now earned the Bear Valley degree. We are grateful for this partnership and look forward to what it will do for the Kingdom. See the report and pictures HERE

Campaign success in Trinidad

The TSOP had a blast on the island of Grenada!!! Both faculty and students were engaged from as soon as we landed till the hour we left! The Marian congregation hosted a revival with the theme “Exhausted but in pursuit” reflecting Gideon’s battles. 

During the revival, Annie and I were able to conduct personal Bible studies with a young lady, Trudy, whose husband came in later on. They are both searching in a time when they lost a close friend who passed recently. They are still in personal contact and looking promising. 

The revival was well attended and resulted in one restoration. We left several Bible study contacts with the preacher there, Levaughn Lewis. We continue to send study material for Trudy and Leron and also directed them to World Video Bible School material especially Fundamentals of the Faith. Please join us in prayer for them.

The students were exceptional in their efforts to win souls and braved the hot sun (hotter than Trinidad) and hills to reach as many as possible. I’m personally emotional about this as this is what it used to be in the early days of our school and to see it happening again brings joy, even to tears.

We then left Marian for Archibald Avenue congregation in St Georges Grenada.  Students and faculty hit the streets in a small village called Belmont. Studies were arranged in advance as for the last three weeks, members were visiting the area to make contacts. This way, at least twelve personal Bible studies were conducted each day. The seed was sown and the church there continues to water, we wait God’s granting of the increase

The studies done by TSOP in the area resulted in three souls being won for Jesus. Three precious souls ages 15, 30 and 56 were added. Nathaniel Hall, a first year student performed his first baptism and to date he is still rejoicing that he did well. The ocean was rough though and the area dark but we completed the task any way and sang on the beach for about half an hour after!

We are noticing through these gospel meetings that people are searching for truth and we know that the Word is truth so our job is easy – present truth. Continue to pray for TSOP as we march for the Master. Our search is also on for new students for September. We already have four registered and seeking another six to make a full class of 10 for 2018-2020. May God continue to bless you richly in all you do for us and know that we are eternally grateful for your love and support.

Outstanding lectureship in Trinidad-Tobago

It was my pleasure to have been able to be a part of the annual World Evangelism Workshop in San Fernando, Trinidad-Tobago, home of the Trinidad School of Preaching. I was blessed to work beside Coordinator Larry Waymire and TSOP Director, Dominic dos Santos.

The sessions were well-attended, the spirit was joyful, and all were uplifted by being there. Additionally, funds were raised for evangelism in parts of the Caribbean such as Trinidad-Tobago, Dominica, and Jamaica. 

We are extremely happy to be partnering with TSOP to train preachers for that region of the world. May God bless this partnership!

Brotherly,
