Well after Chris spent two days beating on the police officers here in Chiquimula and training them on many other things (haha), he came to our house and lead the pastors through a study on the Psalms. God used him in a great way! I know Chris had to be exhausted...I was! The pastors loved the seminar! I loved the seminar! It opened our eyes to see the Psalms at a different level and come to understand them more! I was a little worried about the education level for some of us, but the pastors were so attentive and alert and asked a lot of questions! And there were times where they had to explain and answer a lot of questions...praise the Lord they seemed to be right on with the teachings and material being taught. We had 22 pastors able to come and participate in the day and a half seminar. Many had to sleep in tents and outside on sleeping bags, but they really enjoyed the fellowship and the Food!! Brandi and Nancy always do a great job cooking and providing us and the pastors with some of the best tasting food!! For many of the pastors, it is the only meal out of the whole month where they will be able to eat meat...and a lot of it! Praise the Lord!! Thank y'all for your support and prayers for these seminars!! It really means so much to the pastors and more to us that y'all remember, pray and provide for these seminars! Chris had several folks from his church help pay the costs of this seminar, and he was able to buy a book on "How to Preach in the Spirit" for each pastor that was here. He left the English copy for me and let me tell you that it is a awesome book!!! So thank you to Chris and his church for their love and pouring into the lives of the pastors as well as our lives! God is so good!
