Yesterday morning, I attended a workshop for IMB missionaries on mentoring. There wasn’t a lot in it that I didn’t know, but it was a good reminder of what I am doing with my students in the youth ministry program. Mentoring is a HUGE part of the Center for Youth Ministry, and I need to continue to be very involved in these types of relationships.
We also had dinner with Elizabeth and Fernando, a pastor and his wife in the area. He is the pastor of Renovacion Church down the road from us. It is the church where Huberto works as the youth pastor. They offered to bring dinner, so we ate some awesome Enchiladas with green salsa, Mexican rice, and beans. It was a great time of fun and fellowship, and we had a great time talking about the ministry, encouraging them, and watching the NFL playoffs. I hope this is the beginning of a great friendship.
