On Tuesday the wonderful training began. We learned so much it is hard to know what will be of interest to others.
I think one of the most exciting new things is the new requirements for graduating from Seminary. 1. A Student must have at least 75% attendance at seminary or do make up work. 2. They must read at least 75% of the book of scripture they are studying. 3. They must pass the 2 per year course assessments at 75 % or better. 4. They must have an interview with their bishop.
"For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the mist of them." Matthew 18:20 For some students here in South Africa it is almost impossible to gather with other students, so they must do the best they can for themselves, but there will truly be blessings for those who attend seminary and gather together in His name.
Student who choose not to graduate but attend will receive recognition but not a graduation certificate. It will be interesting to see the student that rise to the occasion and do what is required to graduate.
