Greetings from Byron and Hi,
We pray that this message finds you and your loved ones doing well. We are doing fine here. The Lord is blessing the work here in many ways with a very positive start for 2013.
As we traveled during the end of the year giving our 2012 report, many of you saw what took place last year when we had our 3rd Annual Lectureship for Instituto Teológico Latinoamericano (ITL). In our report you also received an invitation to join on March 21 – 25, 2013 for three great events. As a result there was a great interest shown by many to come to Guatemala in March. We told you we would send you more information to help you properly plan to visit us.
On March 21 – 25, Lord willing, we will be celebrating the 5th Anniversary for ITL. God has been good to us and we give Him the glory for five years of existence. We will also be having our 4th Annual ITL Lectureship. And, to crown off the weekend, we will have our 2nd Graduation from ITL and graduate our BETA class as well as four students from the ITL Saturday program. This year’s theme for our lectureship will be Unidad Entre Hermanos: Una Respuesta a la Oración de Jesús (Unity Among Brothers: An Answer to the Prayer of Jesus). Again, we have a great line-up of speakers. Pedro Batres from Nicaragua, Alexander Castellanos from El Salvador, Francisco Rada and Silas Prado from Texas, and Bob Turner from Colorado are our principle speakers. Other speakers will be Abner Ramos from San Cristobal, Alta Verapaz, Guatemala, and Misael Ajuchán from Guatemala City. In addition, Silvia Castellanos from El Salvador and Araceli Rada from Texas will speak to our ladies. As you can see, the lectureship is going be a great inspiration to everyone who attends. Please remember that all activities will take place in both English and Spanish.
The schedule of events and other details, along with costs, can be found by clicking here.
As you can see, we are trying to keep the cost reasonable. We believe it is a good price for 4 days in Guatemala and for all that will be taking place. You will not only be a blessing to us and to our students, you will also receive a blessing yourself by being here.
PLEASE come and be with us. Please share this message about our 4th Annual Lectureship, our 2nd ITL Graduation and our 5th Anniversary celebration for ITL with others in your congregation who may not receive our correspondences; please make sure it is posted on your bulletin board at your congregation. This would be greatly appreciated.
May God bless each of you! Please RSVP by Sunday, February 17th so that we can make the proper arrangements for your arrival to Guatemala.
Con amor en Cristo,
“Teaching the CENTRAL MESSAGE in CENTRAL AMERICA”
