We celebrated our graduation at the Ambassador Baptist Bible College and Graduate School on May 14, 2010.
A couple of days before the graduation we had a pre-graduation celebration at our home. The staff and graduates were there enjoying fellowship and good food prepared by Susie.
We graduated 12 students this year. Bro. Cirilo de la Rosa was our graduation speaker and did a wonderful job of challenging the grads for the future that awaits them as they step out to serve the Lord in a full time capacity.
There were several hundred present for the occasion with many of them coming from out of state. We had a wonderful time of fellowship and a great meal after the services.
Thank you for your prayers and support for this ministry. God bless.
On May 15, 2009, we celebrated the first graduation of ABBC at its new location at the Palms Youth Camp. The 2008-2009 school year marked the first time to offer the MA program through INSTEP of Louisiana Baptist University. It is a first for the INSTEP program here in Mexico.
We graduated eight third year, nine BA and nine MA students. Plus for the first time, an Honorary
Doctor of Divinity Degree from LBU was awarded to a Mexican pastor. The first recipient of this honor is Pastor José Reyna of Maranatha B. C. in Monterrey, Mexico. So we had 27 receiving diplomas and degrees this year, the most by far in the history of the college!
This year we put up tents and had everything done at the campus. There were over 800 people from four different states in Mexico attending! After the service, a dinner was provided and some great fellowship until late into the night.
Our guest speaker was Dr. Mark Crook from LBU who preached a tremendous message. Several trusted Christ as their Savior! Dr. Crook handed out the first MA degrees through INSTEP here in Mexico as well as the first D.D. Degree and received a special award from the college presented by yours truly.
We had a great graduation on May 16, 2008, with 12 graduating. Five graduates received B. A. Degrees from LBU. There were about 200 present during the morning session at the college campus under a tent plus a special dedication for the married couples’ dormitory. The evening session was held at the Allende Civic Auditorium with over 400 attending.
We will also be adding a Masters Degree program through I.N.S.T.E.P. of Louisiana Baptist University. We already offer the BA Degree program and have had 26 graduate in the four years we have offered it. Our school will now be known as the Ambassador Baptist Bible College and Graduate School (Instituto Bautista Bíblico Embajadores y Seminario).
On September 1st we will have a special service to open the 2008-2009 school year. We will have the service under a large tent on the property with special music, preaching and fellowship. There is much to be done, and we need your prayers to help us see it through. God bless.
We praise the Lord for His many blessings on the graduation this year! Even with the rain we had a tremendous May graduation celebration with 400 attending the services as we graduated 15 men and women! Pastor Larry Maddox of Central Baptist Church, Houston, TX was our guest speaker and delivered a tremendous challenge to the student body and staff. We handed out several awards and Bibles to the grads as well as two scholarships for returning students provided by the Palmetto Avenue B.C. of Sanford, FL.
