February 2019 Student Newsletter

February Was Resolution Renewal Month
Russell Haffner
Russell Haffner (Director)

In last month's student newsletter I wrote to you about the tradition of making resolutions in which people resolve to accomplish personal goals during the new year. Many see the new year as a great time to start improving their knowledge of the Bible. I also explained how some quickly get discouraged and give up on their goal. Therefore I challenged the student body to make February a month of resolution renewal.

To encourage everyone in this effort we decided to calculate and record the number of courses the students completed in the month of February. The goal was for all the students to complete more courses this month than ever before. I am pleased to report to you that 191 courses and 6,180 lessons were completed in February. This endeavor has been a great success. Never have we seen so many courses completed in one month. I commend you for your dedication to your studies and encourage you to press on with your efforts. It is always a worthy goal to gain a better understanding of God's word.
