One section of the Mathes Pastor Training School in Barahona meets in Batey Los Robles. Our host pastor is Pastor Ramon. He is a good friend and a devoted follower of Christ.
Everything I know about Pastor Ramon is made better by knowing his family. His son and daughter are often present for class. Both are delightful, sharp young people. The son is a little more introverted than his sister. Well, that’s an understatement. She’s definitely the extrovert. She can particiapte in class with great questions and great answers. Pastor Ramon is building the next generation as well as equipping an effective church.
Different cultures place different expectations on pastors. Some of them are not necessarily Biblical, but they are expectations. One of those for Pastor Ramon is dressing to preach. Guess that one is not limited to a single culture! His economic situation didn’t really allow him to meet that expectation. What happened?
One the pastors that helped us teach in 2013 arrannged to send Pastor Ramon a suit. (CLICK HERE to see a previous post about a handsome pastor) And that was not the only time. As we meet more and more dedicated, Godly servants of Christ we discover new opportunities for ministry.
Before you have a Spring garage sale, send us a note. You never know what’s hiding in your closet or garage that might meet a need for a pastor and his family.And even if you don’t have material things to meet a need, your prayers are needed for Pastor Ramon and others as we engage in planting new churches in 2015!
Soli Deo Gloria!
