Dear Ministry Partners,
This time may I share with you about the Bible College Ministry as we reopened the new Academic year.
I. Biblical School of Theology:
The Lord has blessed this School greatly. We started this in 1996 and we have produced 498 students and out of the graduates and 98% are involved in the ministries of the church (preaching, teaching, orphanages, etc.). We are grateful for that. The Lord has enlarged the school ministry and students come from 17 different ethnic groups. We had a freshmen welcome service on June 23 and there were 146 students for this Academic year:
As we do every year, we conducted a three-day salvation campaign for students. We formed three groups based upon the langauge that the studensts speak and invited three great evangelists for those meetings. We thank God that some new students, who did not have assurance of salvation, have had assurance of salvation and we felt a little revival on those three days.
II. Faith Missionary Training Institute:
This school is June to August (three months) for those who cannot study in English. The medium of instruction is their native language. This year we have 19 students from six different states and seven different ethnic groups. We have no desk and benches, and so they sit on the floor and they study the Word of God every day. There are two very young people and three who are over 60 years of age. The Lord has blessed this institute in producing faithful frontline missionaries.
Yours in His vineyard,
Timothy, Servant of the Lord
