More site testing of this blog as I get ready to leave for Columbia in 5 more days. I will be traveling with Matthew Allen and Jason Schofield from Kettering, Ohio for two weeks while we teach New Testament church leadership. We’ll be hosting two conferences for three days each in Baranquilla and Manizales. We’ll also be visiting congregations in the bush each evening carrying forth the same theme of encouraging church leadership among Columbian congregations. There are 83 congregations of the saints meeting in Columbia that we know of and they are desirous of teaching on deacons and elders now. Our prayer is to serve God and these saints and help and encourage them to move to this next level. If I can figure out how to work this blog from my phone, I”ll be in touch.
