As many of you know, we have gradually shifted from radio responsabilities to focusing on the startup of a bi-vocational institute to train Paraguayans
For the next three months we will be traveling to various places in Paraguay to recruit and challenge young and not-so-young to dedicate a time to study the Bible and learn a trade.
Our journey began in Obligado 17, some 30 minutes from our home. There, at a little country church that seats about 40 people we shared a lovely day surrounded by wheat fields, slow growing chicken and fresh air. The Obligado 17 church is led by farmer. He has felt God calling him to oversee this small congregation that him and a number of farming families began some 5 years ago.
We enjoyed a home country meal, and enjoyed fellowship all afternoon. They are eager to walk along side this project.
Bella Vista. We shared here this morning with the congregation who made us feel at home. When the chuch is packed it sits 400. The people in B. Vista are renowned for their simplicity. The average age is 20.
A lady came up to me after the service. She works for one of the rich families in town. She committed to help with $10 a month to help the radio ministry, which will play a vital role in promotion and training of future radio personnel. I was moved by her generosity.
Another young man said, "Something is going on in my head. I think God wants me to step in"
more of the recruitment journey in the next few weeks.
