Ordaining a Faithfull Man

Newly Ordained Puerto Rican Pastor Nelson Westerband
 Today, I traveled to the mountain village of Aguas Buenas and had the privilege to participate in the ordination of a Puerto Rican pastor, Nelson Westerband.

He has been a faithful servant here on the island for many years.

But, even so, ordinations are tough and the council was thorough.

His doctrinal statement was 35 pages and it took us from 1 pm to 5 pm to go through it, with only a 15 min. coffee break. Then we discussed his answers and voted.

It went well.

It was a pleasure to vote "yes," and to sign his ordination certificate.

Puerto Rico is blessed to have a servant of the Lord of this caliber. May the ordination of this faithful man lead to the ordination of many more.

The 35 page doctrinal statement!
