I am excited to share this with you. In looking back over the past year, there have been 15 baptisms at the University Congregation here. This is one of the congregations we work with. Many of our CBI students go there (when they are not out preaching.) It also is the home of the BEST Center (Bible & English Study & Training) that my sister-in-law runs.
Anyway, see the baptisms and the breakdown of where they are from. Not bad for a church of 40 people. (Keep in mind, they use the date system with the day/month/year). Please keep these new Christians in your prayers - that they will grow in their faith and be able to withstand the obstacles and temptations that come.

Poor kids can come and have a place to live while they go to college. They are required to study bible two times a day with other Christians. This is now but most are becoming Christians. This is due to the power of the Word and the power of a Christian community that they live in – 5

September 4, 2013
We just started a new term here (August 12th) and that's brought lots of changes. We had 7 new students start studying. You can see them (and the two who started in April and May) at our blog - http://randrdolan.blogspot.com/
One has already dropped out and gone home, but we've added 2 more in his place. Please pray for them as they grow, begin to hear about God (for some) and try to acclimate to the rigors of study.
Please also remember in your prayers our recent graduates (4 in Dec 2012, 4 in late March 2013, 1 in June 2013) and upcoming grads (3 this month) as they start works or new phases in life. Phally, who graduates this month, wrote this to me, "Teacher, thank you for letting me come to CBI and teaching me about the true God."
Thanks for all you do to for the Kingdom here.
P.S. Borei, July 2012 grad, who has planted a church in his hometown, sent this message last week, "Yesterday we had 10 people in worship. We worship every week. Teacher, my Dad has hated me and my mother (we're Christians). Please pray for us. Thanks and God be with you."
