About 20 new students from Nigeria, Myanmar, China, Indonesia, Korea, Philippines, and the USA are in orientation this week. Next week classes commence. Please pray for these students as many of them are taking their studies in English as a second language.
We will also be ministering to and teaching returning students from Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, India, Thailand, Samoa, Tonga, Cambodia, Nepal, Japan, New Zealand. We count it a joy and privilege to assist in preparing men and women for ministry and mission endeavors back in their home countries.
Thank you for your prayers and monthly support as we together equip men and women for the sake of the Kingdom of God.

Barb and Weldyn are in the final month of teaching at Northwest University. They are passing on the baton to a new full time faculty who has been a missionary in Latin America. They are excited to see this transition happen; and believe that the Intercultural Studies Program will grow for the glory of the Lord. They will stay for the Fall Semester 2012 teaching and helping with the transition.
This summer the Houger’s will be in Indonesia, Singapore, Papua New Guinea, Tonga, Thailand, Cambodia, Mongolia, Samoa and American Samoa. Much more ministry and teaching attention will turn towards the Asia Pacific Education Office and the Asia Pacific Theological Seminary in Baguio City, Philippines over the course of the next year.
