Our Resources and God’s

There are two areas of concern in our participation as Latin American and Caribbean missionary educators--how to obtain a continual increment in the number of missionaries involved in training and discipleship, and Pentecostal theology and practice in Latin America

Networking our Resources as Missionary Educators

March 1, 2010

Sometimes I wish I had six lives. I would definitely spend a life studying anthropology and what makes MK’s tick.  Another life would study South American History and why they have such a hard time with democracy.  And at least one would be for developing women’s ministry teams.

A Missionary Mistake?

I just returned from an exciting teaching assignment with the “Facultad” in the beautiful city of Merida in the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico. After class, the local director of “Instituto Bíblico Bethel” proudly displayed his Mayan heritage to the visiting professors during a trip to the ancient ruins of Uxmal. After we established some mutual respect, […]

Incredibly Fulfilling Moments in Ministerial Training

Incredibly Fulfilling Moments in Ministerial Training

Most of us have experienced the emotion of the anointing while preaching. They are very satisfying moments when we feel a special connection with the Holy Spirit and with those to whom we are ministering. We simply feel “effective” at these special times; recognizing that it is because the Spirit is flowing through us, using […]
