Bible College

A very exciting time in the ministry is about to begin. We are gearing up to start our Bible College this September. I have done some classes off and on with a few men, but we are going to start officially. Pastor Austin Gardner really helped when when he came in January, and we feel that this is the right time. We have some good young men that are ready and willing to give their all. One young man named, Konate, came and told me that he was offered a bunch more money to stay a school teacher and then his mother told him he was crazy to leave a good job to train for the ministry.

We have come a long way on the construction of the building since we started. The rising costs and the drop of the dollar have made it hard. I told my wife the other day, that a few years ago we always had money left over at the end of the month to build or put into the ministry in one form or another. It doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. I’m certainly not complaining because the Lord has always taken much better care of us than what we ever deserved. Our greatest need at the Bible college right now is to complete my office and a classroom. We would also like to furnish beds and other necessities for the young men. This will cost about $2,000 to complete. Please pray that the Lord will help us with this need.

We will have six students. We have three that will be on scholarships. We have had two sponsors already for these students. That has been a great blessing. The cost is $60 a month. That takes care of their lodging, food and books. It is a work scholarship. They have to earn it by working about 20 hours a week.
