Blessings From Baxter

Jenny Jones - Tuesday, July 15, 2014

We’ve been blessed to have an enormously fruitful relationship with the Baxter Institute in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.  Baxter trains and equips men and women to be preachers, teachers, and leaders.  After graduating with a top-flight Bible education, they return to their homes to lead in their local church and community.  It’s a wonderful organization and we’ve recently taken on added responsibilities in the oversight of Baxter’s operation, strengthening an already-substantial partnership.

One of the most exciting things we’ve been afforded the opportunity to do at Baxter is to help provide scholarships for students from Cuba to attend the Institute.  The relationships formed with these men and women are so meaningful to us and it’s thrilling to see them graduate and take their training back to their homeland to share Christ there.

Recently, two of those Cuban students, a married couple named Sergio and Aylen, gave birth to a beautiful daughter, Alejandra, after a difficult delivery.  Afterwards, he shared a warm and gracious note expressing his feelings and thoughts upon becoming a first-time father.  It’s a nice read.  He also passed along, at our request, his notes from an excellent devotional talk that he gave to our spring break campaign group earlier this year.  Take a look at these documents.  They are such encouraging sentiments and insights from a family who will be on the front lines of what God is doing in Cuba.  We’re so happy for Sergio and Aylen and proud to be associated with them and the Baxter Institute!
