Edgar, Karyna, Areli, and Chaire will graduate tomorrow with their degree in youth ministry from the Mexican Baptist Theological Seminary. This is our largest graduating class, and it has been a pleasure to be their professor. I know that God has great things for each one of them, and I am excited to see how He uses them to impact young people all over Latin America.
