Pray for Wesley Seminary

Pray for Wesley Seminary. We have several opportunities/challenges facing us. First of all, we are seeking accreditation by the Venezuelan Ministry of Higher Education. By God's grace, one of our students and UMC mission pastors is now employed by the Ministry and will usher our application through the Ministry. What a great blessing we have received from the Lord! As our student leads this process, several issues have emerged. Most of them are in the process of being addressed and will be satisfactorily resolved. The biggest challenge we face is space! As you can see from the photo, we are simply out of space. The Assembly of God Bible Institute has been our home for the first 3 1/2 years. We use their largest classroom and have simply outgrown it. Additionally, one of the requirements by the state is to have our own site in order to be accredited. At this time, Jon Herrin, missionary, is looking at some potential temporary sites while we continue to pursue the purchase of our own location. Good News: I spoke yesterday with a donor who has committed significant support for this effort. He stated that he hoped we would receivedthe promised funds early in 2007! Praise God! However, we do not yet have funding for a temporary location. We are praying for God's provision for this need. We have learned to trust God's supply. Pray with us for this need.
