In the 2004 Louisiana Minsiters meeting, we adopted a resolution to form a strategic partnership with the Church of God in Honduras to help advance kingdom work. During the past two years, many thousands of dollars have been raised by LA congregations and individuals for projects which involved the Bible school in Sequatipique (pictured). This is how the building looked on Wednesday when I was present for the dedication of the dormitories. It will house 48 students in four quads of six persons. The building is wired for Cat 5 internet access and multi-media equipment. It is a splendid facility for the future! The building was dedicated to the Church of God in Louisiana and here it is the plaque unveiled by former National Overseer, Roman Cruz. We congratulate the Church of God in Honduras for its vision and the work that is being done to train pastors and leaders for the 21st century.
This past week we were joined by 26 workers from four states to complete projects. We had a blast. My good friend Jim Milligan (amigo) and my father joined the trip to lead their respective groups. Here we are standing in front of the parsonage we built in Saledito! The pastor is Brother Maldonado and we left knowing we had planted some good seed in this community.
God has blessed our state as the result of our mission emphasis. I'm so proud of what Louisiana is doing for the Kingdom of God!
