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.

Thank you for praying for our decision about the winter break.  We were able to determine that it would not be beneficial for all of our students, so we will maintain our regular schedule. Thursday was a holiday, so our students got library time instead of classes.  In the evening we got our campus students together to play table games.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click the link below.

We have now finished 7 weeks of semi-lock down here on campus.  Our city has had less than 30 cases of Covid-19, and only 2 deaths, for which we are thankful.  Many commercial stores are now functioning with social distancing and face mask requirements being enforced.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click the link below.

On Tuesday and Wednesday our professors trained and prepared, and on Thursday we began distance education for all of our classes.  God was very gracious and within two days we had all 12 professors and 6 town students online and off the campus.  There have been a few hiccips, but overall, things are going well.  To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click on the link below.

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! The conference went very well, and we got excellent feedback from those who came, both speakers and graduates. To continue reading the update from Ed Alexander, please click the attached link.
