"I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me"
Joselito celebrated his happy birthday with many emotions, gifts, and nice friends and partners in the missionary ministry. It is necessary to say, thank you so much to our friend David Sills and his work team, for this special time together. We are very excited because we are not alone in the life and the ministry. We have a big family around of the world!
Joselito shared the first course of pastoral training in Candelaria Baptist Church, about Biblical Hermeneutics. Attended forty pastors and leadership of indigenous churches.
The first week of April, We received the visit a working visitors from Louisville Kentucky of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Five teachers sharing classes of Homiletics in the Gospels, Hermeneutics, and Bible study in Genesis, and Systematic Theology. The leader of this group was my big friend and partner Dr. David Sills, PhD. Attended seventeen pastors and leaders of nine churches of the country side. With this special week, we started our Pastoral Training School in our home church (UBC). It was a nice experience for to teach every day (eight hours) and to celebrate the glory of God every night with preaching, singing, praising and fellowship.
