I just returned from teaching an introduction to the Apostle Paul's letters to a large group of leaders at Hebron Baptist Church in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
I also presented a workshop on personal evangelism in one of their mission churches. This is the third year I have had the privilege of ministering in this church.
I love the emphasis of the pastor on leadership training, expository preaching through books of the Bible, sound biblical doctrine, evangelism teams, establishing mission churches, etc. It is a joy to serve with Pastor Elmer.
I led a successful week long personal evangelism conference in this biblically sound church in September 2016 using my training manual.Abide in Christ printed 1200 copies of my book Evangelismo en Profundidad (Evangelism in Depth) for their mission training program and outreach. They have four missions in rural communities, and have ongoing outreach in subdivisions out from Hebron Baptist Church. During the last two years, the church used all of these manuals in their outreach training ministry in Honduras and Guatemala. In December 2018, Abide in Christ printed another 1200 copies of Evangelismo en Profundidad in Honduras for this church to use.

The Lord is continuing to call out those whom He has chosen to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. We have the privilege of disciplining and training His servants. I thank the Lord each day for the faithful pastors, professors, and mission leaders who gave me the opportunity to serve Him. God calls them; let's encourage them to be all that God has called them to be. One day, we will have the joy of hearing the Lord welcome these faithful men and women: "Well done, my good and faithful servant, enter into the glory of the Lord."
"If you don't read; don't preach." Fifty-eight years ago
these were the solemn words of wisdom a preacher gave to me who was
retiring after 50 years of ministry. If you want to be a successful
minister of the Gospel, you must know the Scriptures. If you don't
study; don't preach. Let's teach them to love the Word.
