Asunción, Paraguay | Sheyla Paiva

he  Nuevo Tiempo Paraguay Bible School recently held its first online graduation. In this distinguished event, 20 graduates received a Certificate of Participation for successfully completing the series of Bible studies. 

The Bible school began the course, "Apocalypse: Revelations of Hope," on Wednesday, March 24, through the Zoom application. Thanks to this method, many students from within the country and abroad could ask questions and debate virtually in the different lessons.

Students who completed the program received a certificate during the online graduation ceremony, listened to a sermon and commencement speech, and heard encouraging words from family and friends. 

Yeison Montoya, director of the Bible school in Paraguay, congratulated the graduates for meeting the challenge of studying the Bible in a dedicated and committed way. Several Paraguayan Union administrators also attended the virtual celebration and shared words of gratitude to God.

Marlon Moodie, one of the graduates, shared these words: “They were excellent weeks of study, in which many of us learned new things and consolidated knowledge. Every day our spiritual intellect grew one more step. Now we have to share to the world the good news of salvation as Matthew 24:14 commands us," he said.

Launch of the second online course

With the successful completion of the first course, the Bible school announced the launch of the second online Bible course, "Easy Bible: Daniel." The graduates enthusiastically pledged to continue the proposed new study and invite their friends to participate.
