Praise the Lord for His faithfulness! He gave us strength to work hard to make all the necessary arrangements for the Pastors School to be able to house more students this year!
In May and June we visited some churches on Sundays. P.M. was given opportunity to teach the Word in the Sunday Services and also to share about the Pastors School. This helped us recruit students. Thank you so much for your prayers for the new students as we start this new school year!
We accepted both men and women to the Bible/Pastors School this year. The Lord has provided a free place for the women to stay. This house (which is only two minutes walking distance from the Bible/Pastors School) belongs to V.M.’s distant relative. No one was living in this house, so we talked to the landlord about paying to rent it for Bible/Pastors School students to stay in. Instead, he let us use it for free! Our God knows our needs and provides for us in miraculous ways!
There is a total of 17 students–11 men and 6 women. Most of these students are new believers. Some of them are the only believers in their family. They have amazing testimonies! It is not easy to become Christian here. You must take up your cross and follow the Lord.
One of the student’s parents cultivated sugarcane in a field they rented. (They do not have their own field. People in this area, who do not own land, rent others land to farm for a year or two.) After they accepted Jesus, their sugarcane field was set on fire. This happened in February. The family had borrowed money from the bank to be able to farm. So, now they are in a great financial crisis. But, they are standing firm in their faith.
Please pray for these students and their parents as they suffer
for their faith.
Thanks for your prayers and financial support.
Co-workers in Christ,
P.M. and V.M.
