METODOS DE ESTUDIO BÍBLICO PERSONAL | facilitado por Alfredo Ballesta
Estudiar la Biblia implica no limitarse a leerla, utilizando las herramientas que ya están a nuestro alcance para obtener una comprensión más profunda de lo que Dios quiere revelarle a cada uno de nosotros personalmente. ¿Podemos profundizar en nuestra relación con el Señor dedicando 20 o 30 minutos por día para concentrarnos en nuestra relación con Él? Sí, podemos. Y lo estamos disfrutando.

Studying the Bible means to go deeper than reading, using the tools that are already at our reach to get a better understanding of what God wants to reveal to each one of us at a personal level. Can we get deeper with the Lord spending 20 or 30 minutes a day to focus on our relationship with Him? Yes, we can. And we’re enjoying it.
Pr Alfredo and his wife Nancy have been part of our staff since April 2016, after a long ministry in Uruguay and Paraguay, in South America. He shares with everybody his deep love for the Scriptures and a pasión for a deep connection with the Lord.
