Dear Friends,

Would you pause for one minute to pray for our students? 

They’re here! I just came in from a class full of amazing ministers beginning their Master of Divinity at IWU. This Monday at 8:30 a.m. 30 students arrived on campus for the inaugural class of the M.Div. program.  They traveled from around the globe and across the country.  We have students from New Zealand, Nicaragua, Florida, California, Oregon, Arizona, Kansas, Pennsylvania, and throughout the Midwest.  Last week we had 45 students in  for a course with Dr. Elmer Towns on prayer.  Next Monday another class of Master of Arts in Ministry students from across the country will be arriving on campus to start their program. To say the least things are hopping around here.

All of these students represent thousands and thousands of miles traveled to be equipped to build the kingdom.  Not to mention the investment of time, money and energy for the cause of Christ.

So when you close this email would you pause and pray for the safety, encouragement, and strength of these students and their faculty and staff, as we give ourselves to learning and growing to become better ministers.

May God continue to bless you in all you do for Him.
