This winter has been both busy and chilly. November saw the very last Denton/Schertz Lectureship take place. With that., the chapter-by-chapter commentary set on the entire Bible has been completed! It has been an honor and a blessing to be involved in some small way in bringing this work to completion.
Right after Thanksgiving Gregg and I went to Talawanda to teach the new students there, and to work with our recent graduates. There are many wonderful things happening there! All five of our graduates are working for the Lord. Congregations are being planted, and souls are being saved. We have fifteen new students, all but two of which were not Christians when they arrived, and now that number has flipped. One of our new students converted from Islam and is excited to be preparing to preach the true Gospel.
The boys are all growing up fast. This spring JD will graduate and begin the next phase of life. He is continuing his flight training and is hoping to be able to start working as a flight instructor by the end of the year. Josiah will be turning thirteen. Jonathan has recently begun learning to play the violin and is pretty excited about it. The two younger boys are also running track this spring.
At Talawanda we have recently gotten set up so that we can teach classes via live video chat. I’m looking forward to being able to spend more time teaching the students, but also being able to provide them with other qualified instructors. I’ve been working on lining up a couple of new instructors for the third quarter.
I have spent a large portion of the months of January and February traveling around here in the states updating supporting congregations. It has been encouraging to see the brethren here and to be reminded of all the prayers that are going up for our work. Your fellowship really does mean a great deal to us. THANK YOU! If there are any questions, or if there is something I can do for you, please let me know.
