A New Semester: Learning and
Living Together
One hundred three students began their
BTh courses on February 29. Nineteen
professors from 7 nations will teach
during this 9-week semester, and the
students hail from 11 countries. They
quickly find that valuable training takes
place not only in the classroom, but also
in day-to-day interaction. WAAST's rich
cross-cultural setting provides students
and teachers alike the opportunity to

Extension Center News
KINSHASA, DR CONGO: Fifty-two students attended the January/February BTh
session. The center also hosts an MA program, and 11 students hope to come to the
central campus in May to complete their courses and prepare to write their theses. Praise
God for new dorms that can accommodate 28. Please pray for finances for the students
and center, and for peace as elections are held later this year.
GHANA: Forty-three students recently completed BTh courses at this center in Kumasi.
NIGER: For a variety of reasons, this center has not been active for some time. Pray for
the leaders as they make plans to offer the BTh courses again. An alumnus reports that
churches are growing, and many Nigeriens are questioning their own religion. More
workers must be trained while it is yet day!
