This week we’re celebrating the Seminary’s anniversary. So, I went to “La Iglesia Bautista Koinonia” today with two of the youth ministry students.
I was sick, and I told Juan to be prepared to preach for me this morning. But, I was able to preach, and I felt the message that I had was one that needed to be preached.
I preached on the need to proclaim the message and to be an example as the messengers. It was out of 2 Timothy 4:1-8. The Seminary’s motto is: “Preach the Word,” and comes from the same passage.
In a city of 25 million people, where less than 2% are evangelical Christian, the church needs to be ready to preach the Word, “in season and out of season” (a lot of it came from this experience) I believe that if we are to make a dent in this city, it’s going to take every Christian sharing with everyone they know.
It was a long but fruitful day. After the service we stayed for lunch and ate “mole,” which, surprisingly, is growing on me (a little). The church was super friendly, and we felt very welcome there. It was a good day.
