On Thursday we hosted the first day of a three-day theological conference. The theme of this conference is “Jesus In The Old Testament”. The conference is designed to provide inexpensive and quality theological education to the pastors and church leaders in La Ceiba. Many of the pastors in Honduras have less than a sixth grade education. They do their best with no formal theological training. This type of conference is a rare and coveted opportunity.
Our presenter for this three-day event is Joe Fitzpatrick. Joe, his wife Bev and their three kids serve as MTW missionaries in Puerto Rico. Joe, who has a Ph.D from Westminster Seminary, is an experienced teacher of Old Testament in numerous countries. Thanks to Joe, the participants of this conference are receiving quality training, in their hometown, in their own language. What a blessing.
