This week in class the students studied the Feasts of Isfael. What a great privilege it was then for the entire Portantorchas community to celebrate the Passover together under the direction of the visiting teacher Wayne Weissman. It's incredible to see how something instituted centuries before Christ's birth, and still celebrated annually by millions of Jews around the world, so clearly points to our Messiah and King.
Today we celebrated the 25th anniversary of Portantorchas. Present were several of the original board members, along with the founders Marco and Janet Perez, who had the vision and the encouragement to get the ministry started. God has brought about 1,000 students through the gates of Portantorchas over these 25 years, and their influence in their families and in communities has spread around the globe - sharing the truth of the Gospel and of the new life found in Jesus Christ. What a privilege to be a part of this work. To God be all the glory. #portantorchas #Bibleschool #costarica #christlife
We were fortunate this year that the final day of Spanish classes for the semester coincided with the day before Costa Rica's Independence Day. So all of the students dressed up, showcased their newfound Spanish skills to their peers, and celebrated all things Costa Rica! 🇨🇷🇨🇷🇨🇷 #vivacostarica #portantorchas #Bibleschool #15septiembre #independenceday
Celebrating typical Costa Rican food today. #independecia #portantorchas #gallopinto
Caminatas are a time each week where we walk/sit/talk/share/pray with another student or staff member. It's a great opportunity to form deeper relationships with those we've already connected with or get to know others better that maybe we haven't had much to do with so far. #caminatas #portantorchas #Bibleschool #praytime
