NEWS REPORT :: January 2007

Dear Brethren:

We don’t cease to give thanks for you, mentioning you in all our prayers. We praise the Lord for all of you, brethren!

Likewise, we don’t get tired of continuing the ministry of the Aparri Bible Aparri. We have seen how the Lord is working through you so that His ministry moves on.

Our students are very busy making and submitting requirements in their classes. They had their mid-semester examinations last January 17-19, 2007.

At this point, the Rhetoricians are very busy preparing for their Rhetorical Literary Society (RLS) Day. We see a good spirit among the members as they work together to put up their RLS night on February 16, 2007. In here, they develop their leadership abilities as well as their talents. We know many talents shall be displayed again. May they be used for God’s glory. Keep on, Rhetoricians!

The Voice and Music Recital on February 23, 2007 is another program we’re looking forward to. Ma’am Grace Alvarez and Ma’am Marlyn Racho are now working with students involved. Recitalists, be sure you have an excellent performance. You can surely use those talents in your teaching-preaching areas.

In less than two months, we’ll be having our closing activities. We’re taking plans for all of these – “Banquet, Conference on Evangelism, Graduation and our summer activities. Let’s not get tired and weary for there are many things to be done for Him.

Finally, the ABS Boy’s Dorm Kitchen is finished. We expect it should be taken cared very well by the occupants.

Again, we thank all of those who have a part in the building of this kitchen. May God bless you all!

We also want to congratulate Bro. Nervie B. Ternura, one of our faculty, and his wife Melanie for their baby boy. Baby boy Ternura was born last January 16. A warm welcome from ABS family, Nervie Jr. May your tribe increase!

The Seminary is actively participating in the preparation of the Tri-Regional Convention on April 20-22. Almost all faculty and staff are involved in the planning. Right now, the promotion team is going around. Bro. Perry Alan, the Convention President, heads up the committee. Bro. Esmelito Acson and Bro. Marion Peneyra join him in the tours for promotion. Let’s all pray for a successful convention.

Please keep in touch with us. If you extend your support to the ministry please don’t forget to inform us thru e-mail so we could acknowledge you promptly. Thank you for your love to the Seminary – your support especially.

God bless you!

In His service,

ESMELITO L. ACSON
