29th School of Ministry Graduation
On January 8th, we held our 29th overall School of Ministry (SOM) graduation. The location for this graduation was at our SOM in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Eleven students received their Associates Degree in Practical Theology from Advantage University. This brings our total number of SOM graduates to 416 since 2010! Included in this graduating class was a 70-year-old woman whose husband was killed in the late 1970s by Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge communist regime. We are truly thankful for these eleven graduates. They are now prepared to move forward in sharing the Good News of Christ and in making disciples of Christ in the country of Cambodia, which is predominately Buddhist. Please pray for these new world harvesters that have now been released into the harvest fields.
School of Ministry #22 Started
Our 22nd School of Ministry inside the Asian Circle was launched in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on February 12, 2017. Praise the Lord for the great things He has done! Little did we know when we launched the 1st SOM in June of 2007 that ten years later there would be 22 schools launched throughout the Asian Circle. Currently, our total student body of all our schools is over 440 students. We are amazed at how the Lord is using this equipping ministry to train world harvesters for the Kingdom of Christ. This is a true team effort. We would not be able to see all the fruit we are seeing without the dedication and hard work of the men and women who direct and teach at each SOM. Please continue to pray for the SOM directors, teachers and students who are meeting at each location.
We are very thankful for our dear friends, family and ministry supporters. Your faithful prayers and generous support are a great blessing and keep us moving forward in the work of the Lord inside the Asian Circle.
