Moses Born Again in Malawi
Editorial – News and Notes Tom Langley
After not traveling at all to teach or host WEI efforts in 2020, this summer has been especially meaningful. I can’t think of anything more rewarding than serving full time in this WEI Great Commission ministry. All the many different components of WEI have their own unique set of challenges and blessings. However, I must confess that visiting, teaching, encouraging, and working in the foreign field has a special appeal to me and my wife, Angela. We were so blessed to recently teach WEI to students in Albania, visit and encourage our WEI partners in Romania, and host a WEI reception in Yerevan, Armenia this past June and July. What a thrill!
WEI is now registering over 10,000 students and starting over 3000 new Bible studies each month from every country in the world. Our Internet correspondence ministry continues to grow substantially year after year largely due to the tireless work of Lee Allen. Our Short-term mission teaching resumed this summer in Albania. We hope and pray that by 2022 the world will have successfully managed through the pandemic, and the dozen or so cities and churches that have hosted WEI teachers in the past will fully resume with those efforts next summer.
One of the most exciting and relatively new components of WEI is our WEI Reception Model. Through our Internet data base, we locate cities or regions of the world where we have a large concentration of students. We host a student reception in that city and invite hundreds of our best WEI students. Several WEI teachers travel with us to that city and commit to stay several weeks after the reception to study the Bible daily with interested students who attend the reception. This is one of the most exciting and encouraging events and efforts we host.
The students who attend the reception come expressing gratitude for WEI and fondness for their teachers. Many students bring small gifts for me to carry back for their WEI teachers. It’s such a thrill to meet these precious souls and hear their testimonies about learning God’s word and improving their English through our free Internet correspondence courses. In this edition, I’ve included an article about our recent reception in Yerevan, Armenia. Please let us know if you might be interested in participating as a teacher in: our Internet teaching ministry, short-term mission ministry, or in our reception model ministry.
Thank you, teachers, and thank you supporters both prayerful and financial. Without you none of this would be possible. To God be the glory!
May the Lord bless you
and keep you;
May the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
May the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace. Numbers 6
