Today was our first full day of teaching on Ometepe. Ometepe is a beautiful island marked on either side by two volcanos. There are about 50,000 living in this picturesque place. And we celebrate today because 90 participants showed up for our IBAC Bible conference. For this week we will be gathering at the First Baptist Church of Ometepe. It is a very nice building in the heart of the government district. The week is focusing on the importance of and how to prepare expository sermons. Everyone had at least one teaching assignment today. It was amazing to watch and see how receptive the people were to the lessons today. The room was filled with pastors, ministers, lay leaders both men an women from Ometepe. They all have great hearts and a desire to serve the Lord but they lack the resources and opportunities for Biblical education. It has been an honor to help bring some of our training and resources to help them. Tomorrow will be an exciting day where we really get into the practical ways of preparing expository lessons and sermons and they will have an opportunity to hear and then evaluate a sermon based on what they have been learning. Jim Wilson of IBAC along with Cairo, Freidy, and Arlen have been great hosts, tour guides, and interpreters. We hope that you will enjoy some the pictures and we will bring another update tomorrow.
