 On August 18, 2012 we celebrated the Graduation of 17 students who invested 5-6 years of hard academic work to earn a Licenciatura en Thologia (Bachelors of Theology in the US).  Most of these graduates are involved in remarkable ministries, from church planting to prison ministry, to food ministries to healing ministries to evangelism, to cell group ministries, to teaching ministries and more.

What a joy it is for our faculty and staff to see the progress made in their spiritual growth and development and to see them applying their education to the real task of Making Disciples in Venezuela.  These good people labor in very difficult circumstances, some in extreme poverty for the sake of the Gospel.  We are humbled by their example and their faithful service.  They are reaching a nation for Christ and we are grateful for the partnership we have with them in ministry.

Thank you for your giving and your support.  You read in our previous post about our immediate need for money to finish the Master's Classroom needed for class to begin there in January.  Praise God, He has supplied that need and the construction is scheduled to begin next week.

Thank you for your prayers and your faithful giving.  God is blessing the work here in Venezuela with great fruit of your labors. Glory be to God!
