Greetings from La Paz.
We thank you for your prayers for the ministry of ESI (Equipping Servants) as it expands around Latin America engaging pastors in the study of God's Word. New groups have started this month in Chile and Colombia, as well as Santa Cruz, Bolivia.
I'll report on that expansion in September, but for now -- please pray for the ESI pastors conferences in La Paz and Santa Cruz August 17-22. We've invited Billy King from Rico Tice's Christianity Explored ministry to teach and encourage Bolivian pastors to stay on task with personal evangelism.
• Pray for the many new ESI (Equipping Servants Internship) groups starting this month in Santa Cruz, Bolivia and Temuco, Chile and Bogota, Colombia.
• Pray for the ESI “Fundamentos” pastors conferences in La Paz, Bolivia (August 17-19) and Santa Cruz (August 20-22) on the topic of Evangelism from the Gospel of Mark. We are expecting over 500 at those 2 conferences.
• Pray for the over 1000 active Equipping Servants Internship (ESI) participants in Bolivia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Uruguay and Chile. Pray for the 1625 total graduates since 2002. Pray that each pastor and church/ministry leader will grow in their desire to honor Christ by being true to His Scriptures, thinking, living and serving Biblically, to strengthen and mobilize the church around Latin America to disciple believers and reach the least reached with the gospel of Christ so that no one will live or die without hearing the Good News of Jesus.
Hello from Bolivia!
