Thrilling to seeing the students committed to becoming authentic followers of Jesus Christ and preparing to serve in their churches and beyond

We know there is power in prayer because it is God who hears it and answers it. Thank you for praying for me (Bil) as I have great opportunity to declare the glory and grace of our Lord Jesus in our beloved Ethiopia. Pray for Grace as she remains home. Looking forward to letting you know what has taken place when I get back home.

With lots of love and blessing!

Bill and Grace
