This past week, Grace and I had the honor of attending the National Prayer Breakfast. It is an amazing reality to be in the room with the President, Vice President, many other government leaders, heads of state from around the world, and people from over 140 nations. Jesus Christ was exalted, and each attendee received a copy of a book containing Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Acts! We were encouraged to know so many genuinely born again believers are part of our government.
The breakfast itself is just the main event of several days of events designed to help people connect. We took every advantage to meet people (both in and out of our government) and tell them what God is doing around the world through Global Baptist Training Foundation!
In just two days, Bruce leaves for the next class in Myanmar. We are expecting about 50 in this class. Peter and Marta Kane will be part of the Myanmar team and will be leading women’s and children’s classes. We look forward to updating you and sending pictures and videos next week.
This Myanmar Class does not have a sponsor, so we ask you to pray for the necessary funding. As we are growing and establishing new locations and additional classes in existing nations, our need for increased funding is very real. Our “Sponsor a Pastor” program is just one way we hope to generate the needed funds to keep all classes funded and on schedule.
Global Baptist Training Foundation offers four levels of training in Hermeneutics, Basic Theology, Expositional Preaching, and Evangelism. For national pastors who desire training in the original biblical languages, we also offer extended training in this area. When it is possible to return to teaching sites twice a year, the training can be completed in as little as two years (without languages). ESL is also available to all of our students.
