Here's another quick observation about ministry in Latin America. None of these are supposed to be definitive, but they give an interesting taste of the sorts of things that are happening.

Today I received a catalog from a publisher in Latin America promoting a series of books which gives a good indication of the sorts of books that are being made available.

(declaration: I haven't read any of these books, so don't know what they say, but to be honest, I'm not sure that I need to.)
Another reminder of why Biblical teaching, training and publishing is needed to feed God's people in Latin America.
