First, I want
to share some good news with you. Because
of the generous giving of interested friends, the financial goal for our
year-end (June 30th) was met. We
are grateful to God for His timely provision through many of you.
Last month, I wrote
you about the recent graduation ceremony in Venezuela.
For the past four years, FLET has been involved in training Christian
teachers to teach Bible and ethics (moral values) in the public schools there.
Yes, you heard correctly! Currently,
Venezuelan law permits religion and values to be taught in the schools, but
teachers must be “certified” as having been properly trained for this
FLET was invited by ANACEV – the national association of Christian educators
in Venezuela – to provide a special 10-course curriculum.
To date, FLET has graduated 100 of these teachers.
A few pastors and evangelists have participated in the training as well.
This is a tremendous, open mission field. Reports
are so encouraging as children and youth throughout the country are hearing
about the Good News of Jesus Christ and God’s plan for living a life pleasing
to Him, many for the very first time.
introduce you to Mariette de Sanchez (see picture on the side), president of
ANACEV. She is pictured here with
her husband, Ner, who pastors a large church in Caracas.
Both of them graduated from FLET with their Bachelor’s degrees.
Ner also serves as a group facilitator and mentor for many of our
students in Caracas. She is one of
the most influential Christian women in Venezuela.

During my recent visit there, I had
opportunity to meet and plan with the Executive Committee for ANACEV (see
picture below). These ladies desire
for 1,000 evangelical teachers to be trained and certified in the next two
years. Wouldn’t that be great?
Think of the impact this would have upon the children and youth in
As you have probably
heard, most Venezuelans are suffering economically – and it is extremely
difficult for many of them to pay for their courses.
To get more Christian teachers trained we are offering a special
“3x2” promotion, whereby students pay for two courses and receive the third
one free (a 33% discount).
de Sánchez and members of the ANECEV’s Executive Committee
please consider helping us provide a subsidy for these “world changers”?
Like other Christian colleges, actual program costs always exceed tuition
and fees, and that’s why we need your help today.
I would like to be able to inform Mariette Sanchez that she can offer the
promotion of “3 for 2” to at least 100 new teachers this fall.
We also have ongoing needs to put some of our courses online.
your help in transforming lives! Please
make checks payable to “FLET.”
continued prayer support means so much.
