Soccer fields are where teams play and train to compete, but in one town in Guatemala, a different type of training is happening at the soccer field.

In Chicaman, a town about three hours from Chichicastenango, a group of pastors and leaders came to a local soccer field for their own training--Bible training.

Taught by ASELSI staff and trained teachers, these 35 leaders are from 23 different congregations around Chicaman and were brought together by a local ministry to study ASELSI's two-year Bible course.

One of ASELSI's core ministries is to equip and train church leaders and pastors so that they can understand the Bible and share it, demonstrate it, and apply it in their lives, communities, and churches.

This new Bible Extension class began in February and will continue training these hungry leaders each month. Thanks to a local ministry in Chicaman that has a vision for developing pastors, ASELSI is part of bringing these leaders together to train in God's Word.

This new extension is one of many extensions held across Guatemala as well as international extensions in Mexico, Cuba, Venezuela, Myanmar, and the United States. Read more about ASELSI's Bible training here.
