IBCM Hispano 2017

IBCM Hispano is the Spanish version of International Brethren Conference on Mission held every four years. More than a dozen Spanish-speaking countries reconvened in the beautiful Caribbean Island of the Dominican Republic; in its capital, the colonial city of Santo Domingo. The theme was “Christ’s Mission Today” and the purpose of the conference is to encourage, to pray for one another, to make connections, hear updates and share with one another about what the Lord is doing. The fellowship that we enjoyed included times of prayer for each other in small groups, workshops, meeting new people, seeing old friends, excellent food and conversations in one of the four hotel restaurants, two swimming pools, a white-sand beach in bright sunny shiny days with clear turquoise water and above all, the warmth of the hospitable and friendly people of the D.R. who kindly took us sightseeing.

The conference itself went beyond my expectations in many ways. I enjoyed the preaching sessions more than anything. It was great for me to sit and be fed with straightforward and thoughtful teaching. And even though the conference was held in a resort, I thank God for the opportunity to spend time with my Dominican brothers and sisters in their home and church.
