New discipleship class in Samar Philippines

Edwin showing the truth DVDUNION CITY, Tenn. (BNc) by James D. Suiter — The Bishop St. church in Union City, Tenn., raised funds for a very special project for brother Edwin Inso.

Brother Inso works with five churches in Samar, Philippines. Bishop St. helped brother Inso and several college students at a nearby college, Eastern Samar State University (ESSU), to get a 32-inch TV for use in their discipleship class.

The church is very excited about this work since the class now will be able to view World Video Bible School (WVBS) DVDs and other materials such as “The Gospel Of Christ.”

The TV will also be used as a power point screen to display lessons and songs for the group.

Brother Inso asks for prayers for this work. His goal is to teach and equip the students to teach people in the providence of Samar the gospel of Christ. Inso uses his motorcycle-powered “Gospel Chariot” to bring students to class.

Inso is a graduate of the Philippine Institute of Biblical Studies in Cebu and has worked with Jeremy Barrier of Heritage Christian University.

The Bishop St. church plans to equip each student with a set of WVBS DVDs to use in evangelism.

Spanish congregation studies New Testament Greek

by Willie Alvarenga

Willie AlvarengaBEDFORD, Tex. (BNc) – On August 24, the Spanish congregation at Brown Trail Church of Christ in Bedford, Tx., conducted a Greek Workshop in order to teach the Spanish-speaking church how to study the New Testament using Koine Greek.

Brother Willie A. Alvarenga, director and instructor for the Brown Trail School of Preaching Spanish department taught the 6-hour course. Basic principles of Greek grammar, vocabulary, and exegesis were presented.

There were 50 Bible students in attendance and more than 120 visiting the live broadcasting. Thankfully, we now have the six videos posted on Youtube for those who speak Spanish and would like to learn more about the language in which the New Testament was written. We were able to hear great comments from those who attended the Greek Workshop.

Any Spanish-speaking congregation who would like to study Greek or would like to have a Greek Workshop conducted at their local congregation may contact brother Willie Alvarenga for more information.
