Grace Ministerial Academy!!!

Well we had our second module of Seminary classes just about two weeks ago. It was a great week! We learned alot from our first module in April and this one went alot smoother. This month we had two courses, Hermeneutics and Christian Worldview. We had two lecturers from the States..Rich Barcellos and John Divito. The courses both went very well. Each of the men gave 15 lectures through the courses of the week. We really appreciated having both of these men with us! Both courses were very helpful to the students. The students now have three month to read the books and complete assignments for both courses. We had three new students join the classes this time around. So total we had 8 students and about 3 auditors. We hope to see more men join in to next years modules.

On the administrator position...I have learned alot from these two modules! Our plans for next year is to add a third module to the year. So that means we will be able to offer six classes instead of the four we have this year. We will also be looking at the curriculum so to see if there is some namibia specific courses needed. There is still alot of structure that is needed that we will be working on for next year. But we are still very hopeful and excited to see what the Lord does through GMA.

Prayer Requests:

-Please pray for the students as they complete there assignments and study for exams.

-Please pray for us as we plan for next year, that the Lord would give us wisdom in the decisions needed.

-Please pray for the growth of the Academy.

I have included a few pictures of the week. Enjoy!

This week!

I feel like this week I have been living on planet busy. I think mostly because we (Grace and I), only got to see Buddy for like 30min in the morning and spent like 2 hours with him at night before he needs to study for the next day's tests. Buddy had seminary classes which will be ends today. They are/were doing two coursers one on Christian Worldview and Hermeneutics: Interpreting the Bible. After today he still has two more essays and three books to read and final examinations. The teachers were from states John Divito from Owensboro, KY and Richard Barcellos from Palmdale, CA. Buddy will give an update on all that later.
Grace is a little walker now. She is LOVING it and going from room to room calling for her daddy. So SWEET!

Spoke to my granny yesterday and she told me my uncle's room burned down and the omahangu (food) the storage was closer to my uncle's room. Praising the Lord that no one was hurt and that it was not the whole house. Pray for my uncle who lost everything and pray for God's provision with the food. The harvest is over for the year so now the only option to to buy omahangu from someone. Pray for funds!

Thank you all for your prayers.
