Hey everyone! Here’s an update on what we’ve been up to the past few months:
Last December the Lord impressed on my heart to put all efforts and attention into completing the Bible Study Course curriculum as quickly as possible. I had set a personal goal for completing the 2nd workbook before Christmas. That goal was achieved… and then some! By mid-January we had the first 4 workbooks fully completed and was almost halfway through the 5th. Even further along now, we’re on pace for having the entire curriculum completed in April. It seems as if our other goal of accepting students for the School of Ministry for Fall of 2017 could be in order.
Putting all of our attention toward the Bible Study Course has kept us from progressing on our house-to-be; which is currently just a shell. We still have a long way to go in order to move in. The work involved isn’t too hard; we’re capable of doing it ourselves (a handful of guys that is), but it obviously requires money. We’ve been saving what we can to purchase misc items needed. In order for the School of Ministry to open its doors to students, our family will need to move out first as we’re living in the student’s living quarters. We trust the Lord for His faithful provision and are leaving it in His hands. If God places it on your heart to contribute toward this cause, feel free to contact us.
At the end of January, God allowed me to travel to Arizona and speak at the ‘Return to the Old Path’ Conference in Tempe, AZ. What a blessed time! The teaching of the Word from all the pastors and speakers was powerful and much needed on my part. I was strengthened, edified, and encouraged that the work God has called us to here in Wilsey, isn’t in vain; but rather still very much a need in the body of Christ. We covet your prayers for what God is doing here in Wilsey. By next quarter, or sooner, we hope to announce the completion of the Bible Study Course curriculum as well as plenty of updates concerning the annual Youth Summer Event in June.
