Mexico: El Salvador Extension

Update from Jim & Carolyn Dowdy
Word of Grace Bible Seminary
Mexico City
September 18, 2013

Dear Praying Friends,

Jim is already one month into the new semester at Seminary. There are 15 students and one auditor. It is a joy to teach these men (many of whom are pastors) what the Bible says about pastoral ministry at many different levels. They are very eager learners!

September 13th we flew to El Salvador for seven full days of ministry. Monday began with Jim teaching the third level of Expository Preaching to the Baptist pastors of El Salvador. Classes are from 8am-4pm each day through Friday.

Additionally, Jim has accepted an invitation to speak at the Shiloh Baptist Church in Santa Ana, El Salvador, where one of the seminary students is the pastor. Jim will be speaking to the youth group this Saturday (on Purity), preaching twice on Sunday, and again each evening Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

As you can see this is quite a heavy schedule. Please pray for us as we go.

  1. Pray for the Spirit of God to transform lives through the teaching of His Word.
  2. Pray that God will grant physical, emotional and spiritual strength throughout the week.
  3. Pray that God will sustain Jim’s voice.
  4. Pray that God will protect us we travel.

We are so grateful for your prayer support!

By grace,
Jim & Carolyn Dowdy
