Ed and Pam continued with me the second week ministering in a Quichua church in the city of Ambato. I translated for both of them as they taught Revelation and family ministry. These studies were well received by the pastors and leaders in the church.

One of the reasons we presented these Bible studies in Ambato is to promote and help start a new seminary extension in a city of over 330,000 inhabitants. The Lord used my workshops on evangelism and doctrinal studies to get two new seminary extensions started in other cities during the past two years.

Christ in Old Testament www.abideinchrist.com/I spoke each night at both locations to the participants and the general public on the Lamb of God in the Bible. Participants will receive a copy of volume one of my book on Christ in the Old Testament – Genesis  through Psalms in Spanish.

We praise the Lord for continuing opportunities to serve Him in evangelism and discipleship ministries. Thank you for your support and encouragement as we serve our risen Savior together.
