Ambassador Inquiry- April 2017
Israel Floress, a seminarian from Leon, Mexico, translated Book One of the revised curriculum into Spanish during the fall. He will translate the Book Two this spring. These translations allowed us the chance to explore training pastors in a closed Caribbean Island at the end of January. Israel would like to have this oral training available for his congregation as well.
ECUADOR Pastor Kevin teaches the Cross-Cultural Ministry class alongside of Pastor Mark Olson. The class has been traveling from the Association of Free Lutheran Bible School to Cuenca, Ecuador for six years. They do ministry alongside of the Aletheia Bible School students as they share God’s Word with schools in Cuenca. The Ambassador Institute has a partnership with Aletheia and has trained eight teams from their parent church, Paz De Dios, in the Oral Bible Study method. This year Mark Olson, Justo Pillman and Ruth Gunderson will be leading the trip. YES, IN THE U.S.
