Yet, it is a special time when young people marry, churches have youth camps, and streets are crowded with people shopping for Christmas clothes for their children.

For Marcia, it was a time to rest and she was able to finish two books: her autobiography The Shepherd’s Network, and Tea Without Sugar: Chastened for a Destiny. Any profits from these books will help bring scholarship students to Discipleship College.
At the close of last year, there was a constructive alumni meeting, a festive graduation, and an excellent faculty training and staff retreat. Some of their colleagues from other institutions in the missionary fellowship helped them.
Marcia looks forward to teaching Hebrew again and Old Testament Survey at the diploma level. The approval has not yet come for the school to become a constituent college of the Asian Seminary for Christian Ministry. Please pray an important paper that ASCM needs will arrive quickly so they can begin, as they are believing for increased enrollment.
