A year of something different

About 3 years ago Phil was asked to help establish another Biblical Teaching and Preaching School (BTPS). You might remember that 10 years ago we took two small children to Penang, Malaysia, to do this very thing. The BTPS is a course for SBS and Bible school graduates which trains in communicating the scripture and its truth in a variety of settings and to different audiences. It is one thing to know the Bible; another thing to know how to pass it on!

So we have thought, talked and prayed over the course of time. This month things have moved very quickly and we believe it is time to begin planning toward offering a BTPS in Kona, Hawaii, next September, 2009.

We expect to travel to Kona early September 2009 and return to The King's Lodge the end of summer 2010. While in Kona Phil hopes to train the future leader of the school so it will carry on for many years to come.

There are so many things to consider with this - the children's education, our responsibilities here, how to set up a school from a distance, and the expenses we will incur with this challenge, and so many other things. The children are looking forward to the adventure but have lots of questions as to how it will work out.

We'd value your prayers especially at this time as so many decisions are being made. We have a God who loves to speak to us, and possibly it might be through you!
