Before and after our house fire [sitting room pictured above], we enjoyed hosting three fellow missionary families as one was leaving for furlough, another was just "passing through," and the third came to visit his student in our college. Towards the end of August, we celebrated Brian's sixth birthday; his little brother, Noah is now 18 months, and Victoria and Joseph will have their eighth and tenth birthdays in December [boys pictured]. Sabrina started their home-schooling in early July, so that they will hopefully be finished by the time of our furlough in mid-March of next year. If you would like to schedule our family for a furlough meeting, or if you wish to give us your email address to be informed of any urgent news in the future, please use the contact info on this site, or find us on Facebook (facebook.com/markandsabrina).
In keeping with our ministry goal of training people for the purpose of multiplying churches and furthering our movement, we now have the following three schools: a part-time institute (37 graduates), a full-time seminary (15 graduates), and a recently introduced correspondence college. Revivals Christian Correspondence College (see "Correspondence" page on this blog) utilizes an exclusively DVD curriculum that we have gathered from two Bible colleges in the U.S. We are hoping that this will help some national pastors complete or further their training, along with giving an opportunity for their members to study from home. For several churches, this curriculum will help them start a Bible institute of their own. Please pray for the potential reach of this new ministry.
