Story number 3 for 16 Sep 2002

(Latin America)–The Church in Latin America is exploding. That’s the good news. The bad news is that there aren’t enough trained leaders to teach new believers. In response, the Evangelical Free Church Mission recently launched the Latin America Training Network, or LATN. EV-Free Church’s Keith Anderson explains its function. “LATN proposes to be a school without walls, and offer training on-site where those leaders are located. The one unique thing about this is, that we’re taking the training to the students, rather than sending professors, we’re delivering all of our content on the Internet.” Anderson says they’re still in the early stages of the project, but they hope to expand it in the near future. Please pray. “What we now have are basically two courses that are being pilot-tested with 20 students. The goal is, that once we have a core group of courses, we will offer it to the public. But for now, we’re just doing some testing with students in various countries of Latin America.”
