Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. Jeremiah 33:3
Dear Prayer Partners,
Our Missionary PA Students have just been sent to various parts of Liberia to begin their second 10 week clinical affiliation. It was a logistical challenge to get them to eight different locations, six being quite far away, especially without the help of my colleague Jamey Mathews who had some important issues to handle. We are reviewing the student’s evaluations from the previous affiliation and trying to implement things that will help them improve on their clinical work.
We are now involved in grading the entrance exam for the upcoming class of students Thus far we have around eighty people who have taken the exam. We are considering 30 students in the next class and we are asking for your prayers as we are faced with making some important decisions in the evaluation and the selection process.
AFBM had their annual Easter conference and this year it was held in the village of Garmue, a church plant started by Jamey Mathews. It was well attended and there many decisions made for Jesus Christ. Two gentlemen from Pennsylvania came and did a good job of challenging us all from God’s word.
The current MPA class will be finishing in early September and I will be coming home soon thereafter. The students who are being selected understand that there will be considerable time between their selection and the actual starting date of their class. It is necessary for me to return home and to report to my supporting churches regarding the work I am doing.
Otherwise I am still visiting Koinee (except when the bridge is out), Gbelekpalai, Gboiume, and Voloblai on consecutive weekends. Please pray with me as I attempt to encourage some of these young Christians to come to our leadership conferences we have on the last Saturday of every month. It is exactly what they need but hard for them to be here as often as we would like.
Please pray for a missionary colleague who is having a medical issue looked into. I want to thank you for all so much your prayers and your investment in the lives of the Liberian people. I could not be serving here if it were not for your partnership in the gospel.
