One of the ministries we are privileged to participate in is teaching seminary classes to developing Christians and church leaders. Such an opportunity presented itself by way of an invitation from Rev. Jovanny Mendieta and Rev. Jorge Palacios to teach some classes this past weekend at Santa Isabel. Rev. Patricio and Timothy along with Jason Jones joined the students and leaders of the Ark Church and several other congregations in the area of Santa Isabel for a weekend of wonderful fellowship and intensive classes.
In addition to the classes we were honored to participate in the baptism of Brother Marcelo. (Video courtesy of Jason Jones)
Timothy throughly enjoyed being in the baptism waters once again with Brother Palacios!
Timothy loved teaching about biblical culture. This is what he was called to do. Nothing is quite as sweet as fulfilling one’s purpose!
As we continue our ministry in Ecuador we look forward to many more opportunities to reach, preach, and teach.
