“[God’s] intent was that now,

through the church,

the manifold wisdom of God should be made known …”

Mr. Kenneth Felker was able to leave the hospital yesterday, but will be going to Ochsner for some tests.  Pray they will be able to find the problem that causes him to lose blood.

Rusty Williams is progressing.  If he continues to improve, he may be ready to leave the hospital Monday.  Keep praying for him.

I hope you are planning to give the five-part series entitled “The Bible” consideration.  It begins Sunday night at 7:00, but will also be shown on Mondays and Wednesdays.  Tomorrow, it will be on the history channel.  Additional information can be found at http://www.outreach.com/the-bible/about.aspx

Baptist Theological Seminary of Malawi Endowment

Overview: The Baptist Theological Seminary of Malawi plays a vital role in reaching Malawi for Christ, both in providing leaders for existing work and in reaching the lost. The IMB has recently realized a vision of nationalizing this institution and they are currently self-supporting. The seminary depends solely on student fees, income generating projects, donations from small Malawian Baptist churches and the existing endowment. The Dowdy endowment income has been greatly reduced in recent years diminishing its ability to help provide a seminary education for Malawian Baptists. Student fees have steadily risen causing the student enrollment to drop from 40 to approximately 25 students. At current rates of return on investment a gift of only $575 will fund one week of education for a student for years to come. $20,000 will provide a full term for a student for years. $60,000 will educate one student each year for years to come. There could be no better investment.
