John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone.

Beginning in 2008 the vision and bible school that God so graciously gave Wade Taylor beginning in 1968 came to an abrupt end, falling into the ground and dying.-

We now wait for God to raise up and bring forth His seed of promise in another, that the vision fail not.

This school year has been exceptional. There is an evident spiritual growth and change that is touching each of our lives. Hearing things that many of the students are saying reveals this. There is a "narrowing" and an "enlarging" that is taking place at the same time.

John the Baptist said, "He that hath the Bride is the Bridegroom: but the friend of the Bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the Bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled" John3:29-30. There is in our midst an evident hunger for a closer relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. The ministry in the school this year has helped both to create this hunger and to feed it. Now, "It is God who gives the increase."

The "Out Station Ministry" has become more active over the past years: groups of students go to Churches who invite them for weekend meetings. There is an increasing sense of purpose, as groups go out nearly every weekend. Much of this ministry is in other States. This is a part of the students being prepared for life and for ministry, and becomes a blessing and encouragement to all involved.

Thank you for your response to the Pinecrest/Howard B. Adkins Memorial Scholarship Fund mentioned in the last Banner. This will provide an on-going help to needy students

A large number attended the Easter Convention. Many came great distances. The speakers were; Charles Haun, a Bible teacher to the Body of Christ who is teaching in the Bible School this quarter; Bill Pepper from Alaska, who is also teaching here this quarter; Stephen Bostrom, a Pastor for the past 20 years in Mexico; and Wade Taylor.

We were encouraged to "press on" towards a fuller relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ, and to take up our cross and follow Him. The message from Isaiah6 was very meaningful in the light of present world tensions. "In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw also the Lord sitting upon a Throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple." Each convention service was truly a blessed time.

During the school year, there are four 9 week terms in the Bible School. In July, there are four 1 week terms. This is an excellent opportunity to spend time alone with the Lord, and to attend very good classes as well. Some come for all 4 weeks, and others for 1 or 2 weeks. Many families use this as their vacation time. There are classes and activities for all ages. We hope to see you this summer.

Our prayer is that you may be strengthened, as you expectantly look to Him. It is our desire that the Banner, and the School, will be used of the Lord to help you in this. God Bless You.
