Our students began trickling onto campus last week.  On Thursday we registered 16.  On Friday and Saturday we had orientation for our 5 new students.  To be honest, we had prayed for more, and were counting on 3-4 more students who had indicated they would be coming.  But I often pray that the Lord would "send us who are prepared for what we have to offer."

Our seniors breakfast on Wednesday went well.  They really enjoyed the American food Jan prepared.  One of our students did not eat supper the night before or anything before he came at 9:00 a.m.  I think he ate the most!

On Friday we actually had no idea how many would be coming for our "Seminarian's Day," but we were hoping the Lord would give us 50.  We had 74 registered visitors representing 13 churches, from 2 states.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click the link below: The Alexanders - November 2019

On Friday night we had this semester's music recital.  There were 24 performances, and all 17 of Jan's students played.  (Not including the grandkids she teaches over the internet.)  She has a nearly 40 year-old beginner, and 17 year-olds that are advanced intermediates.  (This keeps her from getting bored.)  Most all of them did well and did not let their mistakes unnerve them.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click on the link below.

The days of our 40th anniversary conference were some of the busiest we have had in some time, but they were wonderful!

Our master's module on Biblical Counseling began on Monday afternoon, ending on Friday at noon.  Barry (a BMM colleague) and I did the translating.  Dr. Jeff Newman did a wonderful job of presenting an overview of Biblical Counseling as well as its theological implications.  We had 10 students matriculated and each one of them expressed their appreciation for the class.    To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click the link below.

This week we were still trying to get things cleaned up or up-to-date, and broken things fixed.  We still have two broken washing machines, but hopefully the mechanic will finally come tomorrow.  Yesterday morning I started a two-part series on "the will of God", as Pastor Rafael has scheduled me to preach two Sunday mornings.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander click on the link below.

Monday Update The Lord answered prayer concerning the Brazilian presidential election.  The candidate from the political right was elected.  He is certainly not the answer to all of Brazil's problems, but I believe the candidate from the left could have plunged the country into worse turmoil.

From: Ed Alexander <[email protected]> Date: Tue, Sep 25, 2018 at 1:03 PM Subject: Monday Update To: Edward Alexander Jr. <[email protected]> Friday night the students played and sang in this semester's music recital. Jan's students range from Elias, a faculty couple's son, to seminary graduates, and everything in between. This was the first time she herself did not play at the end of the recital in quite a few years. She can still play the piano (carefully)but continues doing physical therapy for her wrist. On Saturday night we had a couples activity at the church. Rafael, our new pastor, is excited about having men's, lady's, couple's and [...]
