March, 2005. Dear friends–
Just after the first of this year, I was invited by my cousin, Roger Tomlinson, to teach at Dayspring Outreach’s Missions Training Center near Cadereyta, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.
The class consisted of a mixed group of about fifteen Mexican and American students. Over the course of four tightly packed days I taught the following subjects:
Bible study methods
Characteristics of the Cults (including the background and teachings of Jehovah’s Witnesses) Time-table of Bible History
Though my Spanish came back fairly quickly during the week, all of my teaching was through a translator to make sure of its accuracy.
On Wednesday evening the group attended the midweek service of the tiny La Haciendita church. One of the students shared, another sang. I presented a brief encouragement and challenge. It was a blessing to be with the Body of Christ in this out-of-the-way spot.
As always, it was my privilege to be of assistance to those serving Christ’s Kingdom in this part of the world. Many of them will be graduating and going on to a period (perhaps a lifetime) of service in Mexico. That’s what we do: equip people to serve Christ better. Thanks for praying.
Be encouraged, Mike Bogart
