Prof.R. Dykstra and his wife Carol left on June 8 for a seven-week stay in Singapore on behalf of the Evangelical Reformed Church and her pastor, Rev. A. Lanning who is on furlough with his family in the U.S. Besides preaching, Prof. Dykstra will be speaking at the annual church camp and the young people's camp. May God grant them a safe and profitable time with our fellow saints there.
Professors R.Cammenga and B.Gritters traveled to Namibia and South Africa from May 23 to June 7 on behalf of the PRC Contact Committee. They lectured in South Africa for old contacts and followed up on new developments in the Namibian churches, visited in 2010. We pray that the Lord will prosper these efforts in the promotion of the Reformed faith.
The faculty and students are now on summer break (but see below for internship assignments). The professors are available for limited hours and staff (secretary and registrar/librarian) is available most days 7-5 (call ahead if you have a special need).

Prof. Tom Reid of the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary gave two lectures at the end of April on the French Reformed tradition and churches. We greatly appreciated his visit and fellowship (and his wife's!) and profited from his informative and inspiring lectures.
At the conclusion of the Interim class, Prof.R. Cammenga and all of the students traveled to Southern California (Escondido) to attend the Westminster Seminary conference on the doctrine of the Holy Spirit (see picture below). They also enjoyed a few outings to sites in the area, and stayed the weekend in Redlands, CA where they enjoyed fellowship with the members of our Hope PRC there (cf. picture below).

Did you know that some of the Seminary courses that were taught in 2014-2015 are now being re-taught in the Philippines - by means of videos?
Our missionary there (Revs.D.Kleyn conducts regular classes with ministers in the Manila area, and in February of 2015 started using the videos from Prof.B.Gritters' Fall 2014 course on Catechistics (how to teach catechism to covenant youth) in these "7M meetings" (see picture below).
And now he has added Prof.R.Cammenga's classes on Anthropology (doctrine of man) from this past semester. Our missionary testifes to the great value of using these Seminary videos in this class.
