On Friday evening we had our music recital for second semester.  Jan had 14 piano students who participated.  Her English class also sang (learning songs in another language is one interesting way to learn).  Our voice and flute students also performed.  We had a fairly large cake, but they managed to eat it all!

Jan flew out last Monday evening and her mother passed away while Jan was en route.  The funeral was on Thursday in Greenville and the family felt it went well and that mom and her Lord were honored.  Our son, Ed, and his family were able to be at the funeral and Jan enjoyed being with four of our grandkids for a couple of days.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click on the link below.

We only had half the normal attendance at our Married Student's Bible Study on Friday night, due to sickness and work schedules.  Jan taught on Psalm 23 and I taught the men about resolving conflicts in ministry.  That's a pretty big subject of one hour, but I was able to give them an overview of some common scenarios.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click on the link below.

On Friday I registered most of our students.  We did have a few students arrive late and I registered them today.  We have 17 students from last semester, and one new student.  He is from a church about 3 hours from here.  One part-time student was unable to return because of work hours.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click on the link below.

Yes, the paperwork for the sale of a portion of the seminary property was signed on Thursday!  The lawyers were still making minor adjustments to documents at the notary, but Barry was finally able to sign, finalizing the deal.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click on the link below.

We rejoice that we were able to finish the transaction for the new church property!  The money had to be changed into Brazilian reais, and then deposited into two different seller's accounts.  The Brazilian banks gave us several hoops to jump through as well as daily transfer limits, but I was able to make the final transfer today.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click on the link below.

On Friday we had our last couples' bible study of the semester.  Friday morning I taught my last class, and Friday night the students hosted a "roast" for the graduating seniors.  In typical Brazilian style, they made fun of them with skits, then followed with testimonies abouth how they had been a blessing in their lives.  It was encouraging to hear the testimonies of all who were involved that night.

Our Bible Conference went wonderfully well.  We had some internet glitches, but overall, we only missed a small amount of Pastor Luiz Miguel's messages.  Both he and Pastor Wandreson did a fine job.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click on the link below.

On Wednesday we had our Day of Prayer for this semester.  Pastor Jonas, a graduate of 7 years ago, who pastors a church on the other side of Curitiba was our speaker.  He gave a brief but interesting devotional on the prayer of Elijah on Mount Carmel.  Then we had opportunities to pray for all of our 340+ graduates.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click on the link below.

We had a good first week of classes, and at this point, the students are happy.  It also warmed up over the weekend, which definitely helps.  Jan told me to wait three months and see how the mood on campus is!  She is right, as the semester grinds on and the work piles up, the mood gets heavier.  But we will enjoy their light-heartedness for now.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click on the link below.

Last week I met with a man who is a contact of one of our missionaries in the Orient.  He got involved with this missionary's English Bible study via Zoom through a mutual friend.  The missionary asked me to visit him, as he lives in Curitiba.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click the link below.

Thank you for praying for our Bible Conference.  We were able to have it "in person" for the students and one of the speakers was able to be present.  It was a wonderful conference with good messages.  Our students responded very well.  One student said to Jan "I have never attended a conference that made such a big difference in my life!"  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click on the link below.

Last Sunday we had a meeting in Mississippi.  Wednesday night we had a meeting in the Kansas City metro area, and yesterday we had a meeting in Olathe, Kansas.  It has been a joy to reconnect with these supporting churches and share what God is doing in our ministry in Brazil.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click the link below.

The Lord granted us a wonderful Missions Conference at the Bible College.  Even though we had a small number due to the restrictions, the students loved getting back together with the town students and staff who were able to come.  Our speakers and their wives were all our graduates.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click on the link below.

Friday we registered all of our students but two for classes.  I was able to take care of one in an online chat and the last one this morning.  (You can do ANYTHING online, right?)  Sadly, we have one from last semester who will be sitting out, as this student made some unwise choices during the lock-down last semester.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click on the link below.
