Another Great Start!

Hey all! Well, it’s been another large gap between blogs and I’m sorry about that.  The last class graduated at the end of June; I headed home to Nebraska beginning of July. One week was spent in Ponca, Nebraska (my hometown) with people from my church… I was able to catch up and teach the inductive method a few nights. It’s always good to be home!  I also got to spend time with other supporters, friends and family throughout the state.

At the beginning of August I was able to fly out to California and visit some my good friends and major supporters – The Glanzes and Rices. Mike and Amy Glanz recently found out they are expecting! Congratulations Glanzes!

The  rest of August was spent back in Montana, devoted to staff training and preparing for the new school to arrive. We have 43 students this year who come from the US, Canada, Holland, Norway, Korea, Kenya, Thailand, Ukraine, and India.  Already, this school has exemplified amazing attitudes in their study of God’s word.  It is a difficult and intense 9 months but their hearts are centered on God’s face. It will be an honor and privilege to teach this school. 

Thank you for your encouragement, prayer, love and financial support… It means more than you know to have you stand beside me and support me in this ministry of seeing God’s word go forth and change lives.  

Thank you also for standing with our base a few weeks ago as we faced the forrest fire… we were asked to evacuate but instead we packed our bags in preparation to leave and prayed all night. The expected windstorm never came to pass and the firefighters were able to contain the fire. God truly protected our base and the people around us. Go God!

I have enclosed some pictures of our staff for this year as well as pictures of the fire 🙂

God bless you all as you live lives for a God who holds the world in His hands! He is good.
