I’m currently using Zoom to teach a 6-week seminary course at the Himalayan Graduate School of Theology in Kathmandu. It is every Tuesday and Thursday for 3 hours each time. We have about 50 wonderful students taking the class. We are studying the life of Christ through the narrative passages of the New Testament.
Ron and Jodi Sheveland have moved back to their home state of Michigan. They now live in Whitehall, Michigan. They have purchased an old (1876!) white church. One wing is being transformed into their home. The auditorium and fellowship hall will be used for ministry purposes.
Ron’s hit that age where he can officially retire. And though he has stepped away from pastoring, the work with I-Training continues. For example, in November and December, he will be teaching a six-week course in Nepal on the life of Christ and the art of doing hermeneutics in New Testament narrative passages. This will all be done over Zoom every Tuesday and Thursday for three hours. The host is the Himalayan Graduate School of Theology. Ron has taught there in person several times but this is his second Zoom course with this excellent seminary.
He is also busy writing new books and creating video courses. Please be patient; these projects are ongoing. You can, however, find some of his past books on Amazon.com.
Here is a picture of Ron and Jodi’s new church/home:
I-Training is a ministry that allows us to train pastors and church leaders around the world. The “I” in I-Training refers to two things: International and Internet. That is, we do our training directly through International Mission Trips and via computers through Internet courses and the distribution of books and resources. Due to the Covid crisis, we are now doing more classes over Zoom.
If you are one of our past students, let me tell you how much you are appreciated. We have done hundreds of courses around the globe in seminaries, Bible colleges, churches and training centres, and each of them has been special. We get to spend a few weeks giving you training in the Bible and ministry methods, and then you go out faithfully to serve God in carrying out the Great Commission. We love to hear about what God is doing through you. Please keep sending us updates!
And if you are part of our ministry partners, we are so grateful for your prayers and financial support. Your participation is exciting and encouraging. Together we are investing in God’s fields and seeing a great harvest. May God bless you richly!
