Bob’s Trips: December 2019 – December 2020

Asia

December 2-14, 2019 – Minneapolis office time, (TLI’s headquarters is in beautiful downtown Minneapolis) and then to Asia teaching Course 4 in our 9 course curriculum: “Gospel of Mark“. Course 4 equips the trainees to understand Gospel literature accurately and to communicate it clearly and relevantly. Mark has been chosen as a representative of this genre. Sample passages from Mark will be the focus (e.g., 1:1–15; 2:1–12; 8:27–9:13; 10:32–45; 15–16:8).

Here’s a link to a TLI Asian story of God at work.

I have not been to Asia for several years. I have great memories! Below are a few pics from those trips.

Ethiopia

January 6-18, 2020 – I will go to Minneapolis for a few days and then to Ambo, Ethiopia teaching Course 3: “Understanding and communicating Narrative and Law (Genesis and Exodus).”

Liberia

March 2-27, 2020 – Minneapolis office time, before and after the trip. 2 weeks teaching in Liberia: one week teaching Course 9: “2 Timothy”, and the next week teaching Course 1: “Knowing God, Scripture, and Ourselves.” Course 1 provides the foundation and orientation for the entire 9 course curriculum. It introduces (1) God’s character, focusing on his sovereignty, wisdom, and goodness, and God’s nature as one and three (triune). It introduces (2) Scripture as our diverse and unified authority, with a fundamental hermeneutical question tied to its diversity, its unity, and its authority respectively. And it introduces (3) our own purpose and role as leaders within God’s church.

Ethiopia

May 11-23, 2020. I will be teaching Course 4 in our 9 course curriculum: “Gospel of Mark“.

Tanzania in August 2020, exact dates to be determined.

I am slated to be the site director at this new TLI site. The first trip will be in August. As the director I will travel to Tanzania 3 times every year and work directly with the in-country partner on scheduling, curriculum, accommodations, budgets and anything else that is necessary to make our training effective.

Somewhere in October

Tanzania in December.
