“It seems like we’ve been here a week” was the comment of one of our team member even though we had just completed 3 days of training / teaching. In just these few day we have gotten to know our student’s better and they feel more relaxed as they have gotten to know each of us. We all agree that the students appear to be grasping the material and interacting with the principles and truths we have tried to communicate.
Steve expressed that he had the best day of teaching as he led the students in his Pastoral Ministry class.They discussed the importance of pastors being filled with the Holy Spirit.
Tom continues lead his class through the study of the Pauline Epistles. He just completed 1
Thessalonians. Barb in her Marriage and Family Counseling class taught the students some basics about counseling married couples.
David, our team leader, taught students in his preaching class how to prepare messages. Later they will be given the opportunity to apply what they have learned by preaching a message. All of us are sure that David misses Stephanie as she is serving this week in the Loving Hearts Baby Home.
In my class on Spiritual Leadership we examined the definition of spiritual leadership, the need for
spiritual leadership and the selection of spiritual leadership. We are currently going through the
qualification of a spiritual leader found in the Scriptures. The students appear to understand the importance of godliness and integrity in the lives of spiritual leaders and are asking great questions.
Tomorrow we will be giving midterm exams to our students, so pray for them. It will be a good gauge for us to see how effective we are as teachers.
Please pray for wisdom for all of as we seek to answer questions from the students and to help them learn how to apply these truths and principles to their lives and ministries. Pray that the Holy Spirit will use us to minister to the students and that He will continue work in each of their lives in preparing them to effectively serve the Master.
In His Service with Joy,
