Second School Term

Thank you for being in prayer for our Spiritual Leadership Conference. The committee of students, who did the lion's share of organizing, sourcing, promoting, preparing, and running the conference, did a stellar job. Our mission was to encourage area churches to defend and proclaim the biblical gospel, and from the feedback I am hearing, the Lord has used the conference to accomplish that goal. We're praying that God grants an even better conference next year, May 22–23, 2015.
Two other events comprise our second term at EABST. The first is the session of block classes Jonathan Moore and I will be teaching starting 9-Jun and running to 21-Jun. These classes will be intense, so please pray for physical and mental endurance as well as comprehension and transformation through our study of the Scriptures. We're excited to have Jeff Straub come from Central Seminary for our final second term event. In July, he plans to teach a one-week block class on the history of Christianity in Africa.
Please pray for us as we become more involved in the school that we would be able to integrate our responsibilities with a hearty dose of culture acquisition. It would be easy to underestimate the need for us to put ourselves in the position of learners and to really listen to what is going on around us culturally. This first missionary term is especially important for acquiring the habits that will enable us to be as effective as possible where our God has placed us.
