Trip to Quibdó, Colombia

An historical event took place this month. For the first time in over 30 years a WELS missionary made a trip to the town of Quibdó, Colombia. A congregation of about 30 members from this town had been received into the fellowship of the Colombian national church a couple of months earlier. On a previous trip to Colombia, the congregation’s pastor, Elkin Alzate, had invited LATTE professor Philip to include a visit to Quibdó during his next trip to Colombia. The trip took place and Professor was able to enjoy the wonderful hospitality of our brothers in the faith who live there. He also took part in workshops and Bible studies during the afternoon and evening hours. In the pictures you can see Professor Philip leading the class, the group that studied with him as well as Pastor Elkin and his wife Eugenia.
