Ambassador Inquiry- October 2017
“As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth… so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will… accomplish what I desire.” Isaiah 55:10-11
In September, Pam and I took a personal trip on behalf of Emmaus Lutheran Church in Bloomington, MN to work with the Bible Institute Students down in the Baja of Mexico. Our week with the students went very quickly and their hunger for the Word of God was refreshing. They were deeply moved as they personalized the stories of the Bible and as they were introduced to Jesus throughout the Old and New Testaments.
The students represented the countries of Spain, Portugal, El Salvador, and Mexico. Within Mexico, the students came from the Oaxacan Indians, Mexico City, Guadalajara, and the Baja areas. Some of them came out of rehabilitation and prison, others grew up as orphans, and others came from pastor’s families. All of them were learning the stories of God’s Word and putting them into practice as reach out to the local communities.
