This summer, many students graduated from Gospel for Asia-supported Bible colleges. The colleges conducted graduation ceremonies, sending the graduates off to difficult but fruitful lives of ministry.
The graduations began in celebration, which included the performance of traditional dances.
At this graduation, the Bible college choir led the participants in worship before the ceremony began.
This GFA-supported missionary knows firsthand the trials that await the young graduates. He challenged them with a passage from the Word and prayed for them.
All the graduates have spent three intense years vigorously studying the Scriptures and preparing to bring the Good News to multitudes that have yet to hear.
Many young women also graduated from GFA-supported Bible colleges. They will minister to the destitute, downtrodden women of South Asia, showing them their value in the eyes of their loving Creator.
The students have received training specific to the goals that were assigned to them. They are eager to put this training into practice.
They also know hardship lies ahead and are prepared to die in obedience to the Great Commission.
The Bible college staff laid hands on the graduates and prayed for the Holy Spirit to anoint them.
They need all believers to join them in asking the Lord for grace, wisdom and provision for their new lives as missionaries. Pray also that the Lord would raise up many more laborers to be trained in the coming years.
