Global Leadership Training

Greetings!

A bowl of borscht and a ham and cheese omelet

Greetings. It's been a little dark and dreary in Ukraine. For those in the Lubbock area, sometimes water falls from the sky and these things called clouds fill the air. It's awesome, but dreary and wet. At the end of each month, the students scholarships begin to get a little short and Sasha Maluga (who replaced me as the Dean of Students and an instructor at UBI) cooks borscht for the students, faculty and guests and there is a big banquet in the school kitchen. This really brightened the day and we had a wonderful evening of food and fellowship!

Greetings! Grace and peace to you in Christ Jesus!

Greetings from UBI in Ukraine

Grace and peace to you in Christ Jesus.

It is so great to be teaching and preaching in Ukraine again! What a treat it has been to renew past relationships and meet the multitude of new Christians and new co-workers in the Kingdom here. I am teaching Revelation and Church Planting/Evangelism while here and find the students as aggressive and eager to learn and apply what they are learning as ever. What a joy to teach to evangelism to a group of students who actively evangelize every day - I will probably learn more from them than they do from me. Our current student body here reminds me of the days when we lived here. It's also been a joy to see former students teaching classes and ministering here. Wow.

Sunday I preached in a small congregation a couple of hours (by bus) from Donetsk. It is in New Gregory in the Dniper region. What a joy it was to meet with these saints! We were joined by a local orphanage which added much to our experience there.

Philippines Report - Sunset in the Philippines

I was blessed to be able to travel to and teach in our four schools in the Philippines. Charles Smith, the founder and administrator of the schools, has done a fantastic job of instilling a heart for evangelism and church planting in the minds of our co-workers and students in the Philippines. This spirit was a great blessing and something that every SIBI school should embrace. I am so thankful to those who support our family and ministry training schools like these for allowing us to participate in such efforts.
