one class too many, yet has been faithful for 4 ½ years, should we be flexible and allow some “at home” work so that he can graduate on time? One has to be flexible when no transportation is available because of a strike and students walk seven miles to their home in St. Louis du Nord. Whether we are graduating 3 or 24, we must put forth the same effort in achieving our goal to commit the Word of God to faithful men who shall be able to teach others. Being flexible and adaptable keeps a missionary on the field. In June 2012 we graduated our 100 th student. We have established two other Bible School Extension Centers where graduates of our Bible school teach, using the same texts we used in teaching them. Benji Dryden is administrator for these centers as well. This present school year we closed with 140 students and will add a few more in the fall. We learn more the longer we teach. Acts 20:23–24 Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me. But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. Don and Benji Dryden families in Haiti Mt. Calvary Baptist Bible College Quitosueno, Dominican Republic Steve Sidler In 1997 we started the Mount Calvary Baptist Church in the Dominican Republic. Three years later, upon recommendation of my director, Dr. Pat Creed, and my pastor, Pastor Mike Creed, in September of 2000, the Mount Calvary Baptist Bible College began. I praise the Lord for Dr. Pat Creed, who was my pastor for years, Pastor Mike Creed, who is my pastor now, and the Godly heritage and world vision of my home and sending church, the Independent Baptist Church of Clinton, Maryland. Over the years, laborers were prepared in the Bible college. After they showed themselves faithful in our local church in soulwinning, working in our bus ministry, working in our Sunday school program, singing in our choir, and many other areas, we began to plant new churches with the faithful families of our graduates who are also our church members. These men and women that the Lord has called into His harvest are precious people that any pastor would be thrilled to have in his church. God has called all of us to evangelize the Dominican Republic and the world. 6 Islander – No 2, 2012
