New Students Arrive at the Seminary

A group of 30 students arrived at the seminary yesterday to begin their journey of being equipped for Christian ministry.
Jan 5 marked the beginning of the 4-day orientation for them. This evening, together with the new students and faculty, we had an informal steamboat dinner.

I look forward to getting to know the students better in the coming days.

Pray for the new students as they adjust to life in the seminary, and for thier studies as well.

Hi Paul,
The Reb has answered. I included a Vietnamese student who will not be joining us, hence my count is 30. 29 is the final figure.

As usual, the Methodist is the largest denomination represented.
