September 19-22, 88 delegates from 13 Latin American countries attended the IX Continental Theological Conference sponsored by The Evangelical Theological Education Association of Latin America (AETAL) hosted SEMISUD in Quito, Ecuador. TriCord President Ron Freeman participated in the conference by presenting the TriCord vision of global impact through theological leaders of integrity and skill and a challenge to seasoned and effective Latin American Theological educators to join TriCord in coming alongside the next generation of theological leaders for this needy region of the world. Many conversations with both seasoned theological leaders ensued. Pray that the seeds planted will grow and reap a harvest of thriving Seminaries, Bible Colleges and Institutes throughout Latin America.
