70% – OFF … and … I am going to Ethiopia!

A Christian publisher (Christian Focus) has agreed to give us a 70% discount to purchase commentaries on 1 Corinthians for our brothers and sisters in Addis Ababa where I will be teaching from June 10th through the 22nd. 

Here is a picture of the commentary: THANKS TO CHRISTIAN FOCUS AND PRAISE GOD!!! 



Here is a letter I wrote a while back with some more information:

Dear friends and fellow believers,
As you might already know, I am going to participate in a trip to Ethiopia this summer (June 8th – 23rd). The following opportunity to serve with a mission agency called Training Leaders International (TLI) was shown to us in the last couple of months. This agency seeks to equip and train church leaders worldwide by connecting them with students and pastors from the U.S. We will be in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) and teach in an academic setting at Evangelical Theological College. If you are interested you can check out my profile here.
At the Evangelical Theological College I will have the opportunity to teach on the book of 1 Corinthians in an evening class (5-7:45pm). During the day and on the weekend there will be various other teaching and preaching opportunities. I am very excited and thrilled to have this chance this upcoming summer. The one who will be profiting most from this experience might actually be me. There is a lot I can learn from other cultures and it is always challenging to see how the gospel can and needs to be lived out in different cultures and settings.
It is the desire of TLI to connect young, seminary-trained students, who lack ministerial experience, with local pastors active in ministry, who lack formal theological training. Again, I am excited about this opportunity to use my gifts “to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12) and to get a broader perspective of the gospel.
Would you please prayerfully consider supporting me and/or other members of this trip? Other than financially assistance I really need some people who would like to commit to a time (or times) of prayer as Satan will surely want to cause confusion and that I may be able to withstand temptation and other attacks.
Thank you so much and please feel free to contact me if there are any other questions.
In Christ,
Benjamin Marx
