End of the Semester

End of the Semester

This week is the end of the spring semester for ILT students and faculty. ILT students will be taking their finals and finishing their end of semester assignments. This means that both students and faculty are working hard to do those end of semester things which are common in higher education.

The faculty and staff would like to ask you to pray for our students as they come to the end of this semester. Many ILT students are working, taking care of their families, serving churches, and doing many other things while they are studying at ILT. This is the new reality of online education for many students. They work at their regular jobs, raise families, and keep much of their normal life, while they try to add taking classes into the mix. This works for many people, but it adds obvious stress. Please pray for them.

As we all know, there are not enough pastors. The faculty and staff at ILT are doing what they can to provide well-trained and prepared pastors. These students, however, face many challenges as they go through the education and training that will help them be the pastors that God has called them to be. They could not do it without your support. We are thankful for the prayers which you pray on our behalf. We are also grateful for the financial support we receive that reduces the financial burden on the students.

Thank you for your support this year and God bless you.
