Advance International Nicaragua
Dr. Sung Kim

Dr. Sung Kim has opened a new Advance International School in San Benito, Nicaragua.  However, they consider the whole 6 million Nicaraguans as their target population.

 
They had their first class in March with Dr. Bong Choi from Atlanta teaching New Testament Survey.  There were  11 students, of whom 9 were pastors and their wives.  However, the next class in June was cancelled due to civil unrest in Nicaragua and the class in September was also rescheduled to February of 2019. 
 
There was a brief fellowship/lunch meeting with the students in September to encourage and motivate them to continue their study and ministry despite all the problems they have been facing due to the political situation in the country..  There was also a dental clinic at the church that is led by one of the students to help their outreach effort.  They were able to recruit two more students and had their second class in November with Dr. Norm Duncan teaching Evangelism class for 13 students.  

Here is a picture of the first class:

They had their third class, "Christian Doctrine", during 2/26-27 with Dr. HueiKwang Shin from KTI in Atlanta.  There were twelve students signed up for the class, but only 8 students attended.  Due to the economic problem arising from last year's civil unrest, many local pastors are forced to find full time jobs to support their family.  Some of our students just could not get excuse from work to attend the class.  We continue to pray that the economy recovers quickly so that all of our students would be able to attend future classes without any disruptions.

They had two classes in 2019, one in February and the other in April. Several of thestudents/pastors were not able to come to the class because the bad economy of the country forced them to find and work full time jobs to support their family. However, other students were able to attend and study both subjects as they were filled with the Holy Spirit. Thank God for Dr. H. Shin form Tennessee and Dr. David Yi from Texas. We praise God for sending those teachers who are pastors as well as professors from NOBTS and for their selfless service to teach God’s words to our students. We are also humbly thankful that He uses us to continue this ministry. Please remember and pray for our students that they will be diligent in studying and preparing for the Homiletics class in June. There are four more classes scheduled and confirmed by the teachers this year:

And last class for the first cycle is scheduled in February of 2020 with Dr. Bongsoo Choi teaching "Pastoral Leadership" and handing out the certificates for the first graduates!!!!!!
