Our Theological Conference Begins Thursday

advertisement for our theological conference on MarriageWe are putting on a three-day conference on “Marriage and the Christian Life”. The event starts Thursday and concludes on Saturday.  Through this conference we are trying to provide theological training for the Pastors and leaders of all the churches in La Ceiba. This is the third theological conference we have hosted in Honduras.

We have discovered that most of the churches in La Ceiba are lead by people who frequently have less then a sixth grade education. They do the best with what they have, but often lack a deep understanding of theology.

This three-day conference will cost each person $2.50 for quality Spanish instruction, handouts and food.  As our speaker we have brought in Roger Dye, a missionary in Chile. Roger is fluent in Spanish and holds an MA and M.Div. from Covenant Theological Seminary. In Chile Roger preaches, teaches seminary, encourages and trains local pastors.

On Tuesday Mike picked up Roger at the airport. We are privileged to have him staying in our home until Monday.
