30 Sep Report from Medellin, Columbia
Dear HLPC family,
I’m writing you Wednesday morning, September 28 from my hotel here in Medellin, Colombia. Yesterday I completed a full day of teaching on Christology. As has been the case every time I teach, the students have been great and very encouraging. Seminario Reformado Latinoamericano has greatly enhanced their facility since my last visit here in 2018. They’ve added a nice library named for Noe Acosta, “Acosta’s Library.” This year they are recording my teaching sessions for use in virtual settings, so I teach under bright lights and in front of a camera. It takes getting used to.
My hotel is comfortable, and in a moment, I’ll go upstairs to the restaurant on the roof for breakfast where I get a very nice view. The restaurant staff doesn’t speak English, but I know I’ve entertained them with my attempts in Spanish. I find I’m entertaining a number of Colombians that way!
Thank you so much for praying for me. I want to do a good job for the students here. Please pray I sleep well and avoid any illness. Also, please pray that the quality of teaching I’m able to provide meets the needs of the students here.
Lastly, let’s be praying for the people in Florida as they deal with Hurricane Ian. Our oldest son, Andrew, and his family now live in Ft. Myers. I’ve been monitoring things from here. I also hope that my truck now parked at the Orlando airport will be OK!
