First of all, on Saturday evening, we held a launch for the Bachelor of Ministry program. After a long time in planning and development it was exciting to see this program finally begin. There is a group of eight students beginning the year together. Vanuatu really needs Pastors who have studied the scriptures deeply and who can think critically and apply scripture to the changing and confusing environment created by increasing secularism and the breakdown of village life.
Please pray for these students, that they would know God and his word and be able to teach and care for His flock in these changing times.
Second of all, Sunday saw the opening service for the year at Talua. This included the commissioning of two new staff members, Pastor Phillip and Father John.
