(Uruguay CNSAM). In the city of Montevideo, Uruguay, Sunday School and Discipleship Ministries International (SDMI) held a training day for directors and teachers of Sunday school and Discipleship on the South District.
Under the supervision and organization of Pastor Ligdana Carrero, National SDMI Coordinator; and Julio Laserre, President of the SDMI Board for the Uruguay South District; a program was developed with the main objective of stimulating the work that the local churches do in the different areas of this ministry and offering training for teachers.
This district event called together presidents and local leaders in this ministry. In spite of the cold and rainy weather, 41 people representing 14 of the 17 churches on the district attended the event. From 10AM to 4PM four workshops on various topics were presented by different speakers, all members of the district.
The topics presented were:
- “Adults and Their Place in the Church” presented by Mabel Gadea.
- “Generalities and Things to Consider Regarding Youth and Adolescents from a Psychologist’s Perspective” presented by Analía Ferrari
- “Why is Biblical Education Necessary for Children?” presented by Andrea Vidarte
- “Puppets as Instruments to Communicate Biblical Truths” presented by Julio Laserre
Each of the topics piqued the interest and involvement of the participants who expressed their satisfaction with the tools received. Their vision for ministry was renewed on the premise of serving through the systematic practice of intentional discipleship. This is illustrated by the theme verse for the training: “To equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.’’ Ephesians 4:12.
