We wrapped up a two-day conference for lay leaders this afternoon. Approximately 200 Haitians from the surrounding area attended, some walking several hours to be here.
I taught five sessions through the book of Philippians, addressing topics including the truth of God’s Word as the foundation for all ministry (Phil. 1:9), the importance of humility in leadership (Phil. 2:1-11), and the examples of Paul, Timothy, and Epaphroditus in various ministry positions (Phil. 2:17-29). We completed the conference with a question and answer time, and I was impressed and blessed by the quality of their questions. Their sincerity was evident, and I enjoyed discussing real ministry issues with them and exploring biblical answers to the challenges they faced.
Serving the Lord together,
