Today is the first day of classes at the Mexican Baptist Theological Seminary. The Center for Youth Ministry has the largest incoming freshman class that we’ve had in the five years of our existence. There are (at least) five new youth ministry students entering this year out of a freshman class of 13.

I’m excited because we really worked hard the last year to promote the youth ministry training program at various events throughout the country. Our students are spreading the word about one of the only bachelor’s degree programs for youth ministry in Latin America (link to Spanish website).

Below you’ll find the list of names of the freshmen youth ministry students. Please pray for them by name.

2008 Youth Ministry Freshmen Class

  • Gerson Hernandez Vázquez from Teziutlan, Puebla
  • Josue Misael Lara Vázquez from Monterrey
  • Kareni Sadai Méndez Galván from Monterrey
  • Débora Osobampo Martinez from Sinaloa

Also be praying for the other youth ministry students who are beginning classes this week at the seminary. I’ll post more about each of them in the future. It’s going to be a great year of ministry.
