This is somewhat amazing to think about. The largest online Christian university boasts over 80,000 students in all their online programs, including undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate. All over the world we can see that Online Education is booming. At SETECA we have the opportunity to be a part of developing a quality program that will have the potential of teaching the Word of God to thousands who can reach thousands more in their congregations for Christ. (Remember Spanish is the second largest language group in the world!) I don’t know about you, but that rather boggles my mind.
Well, we are willing to go and see what God will do. For years now He has amazed us in what He has allowed us to be a part of and how He has used us. Just this last month one of our dearest friends in Guatemala, Esperanza, mother of three and now a grandmother, graduated with her university degree along with students from more than twenty countries. Esperanza worked with Laurie leading the Women’s Ministries almost ten years ago. She decided to go on and advance her biblical education as she serves in her local church and in the community. We are so impressed, not surprised but very impressed. Esperanza has always been 100% committed to Christ. God gave us the privilege of being a part of what He was doing in her life. There are countless others that have also studied and are serving in a multitude of ways in churches and communities throughout the Spanish-speaking world. Now we need to have a bigger part of providing them with the education and the resources to do the best job possible.
So, here we are in Forney, with only a very few months to go, making lists and everyday trying to mark off our efforts to prepare ourselves to transition to a new home and a new ministry among old friends. We continue to pray for God’s provision, not only to arrive and live in Guatemala but to develop a new team of colleagues that will take a Biblical education to the far reaches of the world through the Internet and to prepare Christian workers throughout the world to teach in churches and seminaries and as missionaries leading many to Christ.
Please pray with us and be a part of what God is doing in the world. Online education is exploding all over the world. We are on the cusp of something great. If you are already part of our team, we thank you for your faithfulness. If you are not, please consider partnering with us for this significant new venture. Pray about the part would God would have for you in this ministry, fill out the attached form and send it in to Camino Global.
Your partners in service of Christ,
Alvin & Laurie
