Training Men

Dear Prayer Partners,

Training Leaders:
We are truly thankful for a recent visitor who helped us with the vital task of training men for His Church- Dr. Mike Davidson with International Partnership Ministries (IPM).  From 9am to 4pm for one week in June, Dr. Mike Davidson taught 60 church leaders through the book of Daniel.  It was a blessing for the men not only to learn of the great promises and prophecies that are found in Daniel, but also to be challenged to a life of personal holiness, no matter what the odds, by the examples of Daniel and his friends.
Training Men:
As if teaching all day long Monday through Friday wasn’t enough, on Saturday Dr. Davidson taught a seminar on Bible study and Scripture memory for 15 men of our church as well as men from 5 other Baptist churches within a two hours drive. It was a special day as men from these churches were blessed with the opportunity of fellowship, food, fun, and great teaching. One of the men said that this day of fellowship made him feel as if he were on the Mount of Transfiguration. Please pray for our men that they would grow in their knowledge of and obedience to the Word of God
Quick Trip:
Beginning June 23rd, we will be returning to the States for one month so that Erin can have surgery on her ear and to celebrate the wedding of Nicole’s brother.  Please pray for our young church while we are away.  Barakieli and Ema Karera are carrying the lion share of the work.  Pray for our church to continue to grow and mature through this trial.

Together for His Glory,

Aaron & Nicole Shipe
