February 2015 Achi Pastors Conference – Day 1

2015 | by Clint | Category: Field Updates,Global,Prayer,Rabinal Achi

Pastor Clint and Nathan, along with DSC member and translator Bart traveled this past Monday to work with 70 Achi Pastors.

Clint writes:

Thank you all for praying. The first half day of the pastors conference went well today. I taught on a basic definition of expositional preaching and the centrality of Gods word in the pastors ministry, and then Nathan gave an example of expositional preaching. Tomorrow we plan to teach through the steps of expositional preaching, and then walk through those steps on a sample text. There are 50 pastors in attendance, most of whom are Achi.



In the evenings we are teaching about sex, dating, and relationships for the young adult ministry. There were likely 100 youth there this evening. And they seemed really open to the teaching.


Bart has done a great job as always not just translating but connecting with people, relating well to them, and further explaining the concepts. Eder has of course been a super hero logistics maniac. He’s seriously like Trent but in three languages and the third world. The long day of driving, eating, and training ended with some football with the pastors. Can you tell which ones we are!?

Day1.4Please continue to ask God to lead us all here as we look into His word and what it says and what it means. We teach twice each tomorrow and once each Thursday before returning Friday, Lord wiling.
