The Bible School of the Americas celebrates its 50th year open.
By Jack Farber
What a great event!!! We celebrate not TIME, but results. Jesus said, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
For over 50 years now, the Bible School of the Americas has been looking for “laborers” to go into the harvest that is plentous in Latin America. With the vision of men and eldership, this school has made an impact as men came year a er year to be trained to preach the gospel. We have trained men from
the following countries in Latin America: Dominican Republic, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, and Argentina. We stand today on the shoulders of great men in the past who strug- gled to get the school to where it is now.
“The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
We rejoice that on the day of this celebration we had over 500 people in attendance from many na- tions. We had a representative from each country who gave the background of where the Church is in Latin America now. It was thrilling to hear from each man who talked about his country and how many congre- gations now exist because laborers from BSAM went back to their country to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
What will the Church look like in the next 50 years? The Bible School of the Americas will continue to faithfully train men according to God’s word so the next 50 years should see tremendous growth.
