The Lord willing, Prof. Cammenga, Rev. Rodney Kleyn, and Rev. Cory Griess will be traveling to Mexico City beginning July 24 to give speeches and make contact with a group of Presbyterian churches and church leaders there during the span of two weeks. There are two denominations of Presbyterian churches with whom they will be meeting along with the professors and students of John Calvin University. Doner Bartolon, who is from Mexico and intends to start seminary training in our seminary soon, is the means by which God has allowed for this contact. Doner was born and raised in the Reformed faith and has since become convicted of Protestant Reformed doctrine. First PRC is sponsoring the trip as an investigative endeavor. In addition to preaching two Sundays, there will be five different conferences held on subjects such as the covenant, Calvinism, the history and doctrines of the PRC, and sexual ethics (youth conference). Please remember this trip and the work in your prayers.
