I was searching through our picture files for something specific the other day (can’t even remember what anymore) , and I happened on this picture of Steve, our Latin America Area Director.
When I showed it to another colleague here at Home Office, she joked matter-of-factly, “Oh, he’s killing him.” Mercifully, that’s not what’s going on at all! Let’s call this a ‘dry run’.
Taken at Nueva Belen (the Quechua church in Bolivia that was included in our recent Year End Projects), Steve and Pastor Diego are demonstrating to a number of candidates what to expect in the upcoming baptism service. This is an example of the creativity we celebrate here: with the language barrier between Quechua and Spanish, it is far easier for them to show this than to try to explain it.
But it sure makes for some rather unusual photo ops!
