I spent quite an intense week getting the administrators' manual published and ready for the Computer Training Outreach workshop TEN3 is holding for two weeks starting next week. I realized just how often in our manuals we bring up the following quote:
"I believe that no teacher should strive to make men think as he thinks, but to lead them to the living Truth, to the Master Himself, of whom alone they can learn anything, who will make them in themselves know what is true by the very seeing of it. I believe that the inspiration of the Almighty alone gives understanding. I believe that to be the disciple of Christ is the end of being; that to persuade men to be His disciples is the end of teaching."
--George MacDonald. "Justice." Creation in Christ: Unspoken Sermons
Please pray for the administrators who are coming to Minnesota for training to start or improve their computer schools. Pray that the time is blessed, and that they are led to the living Truth so personally that they cannot help but persuade others to be His disciples.

Can you imagine what it must be like to be too afraid to leave your home? University students were attacked last Friday and Saturday, more than thirty were killed. Schools are still trying to resume normal schedules; they risk closing permanently if they don't continue, but just walking around certain parts of Jos puts peoples' lives in danger. They don't get used to this; please pray.
