GFA Schools Bring Hope
Text from this PhotoShow:
In central India, 42 young men walked into their Gospel for Asia Bible college auditorium for the last time.
Coming from every corner of their state, these graduates spent three years studying God's Word and doing practical outreach training in preparation for full-time ministry.
Their principal and teachers, who poured their lives into these young men, shared with them and encouraged them.
Three years of challenging studies—compared by some to boot camp—are behind the class.
The GFA regional leader traveled to the graduation to personally confer the diplomas.
Like graduates around the world, they cherish their certificates. Completing a GFA Bible college course is not easy, and not everyone makes it.
Another GFA leader prayed for the graduates. Prayer has been a major part of the students' time at the college and will remain the foundation of their ministry.
It is a joy for this pastor to congratulate two young graduates whom he discipled and sent to the Bible college.
Although persecution and even martyrdom may face each of the graduates, they look ahead eagerly to the ministry God has called them to do.
As the graduates march out of the ceremony to join thousands of other GFA missionaries, their trust is in God and their hearts are in His work.
