What a word for today. The IELCO held its extraordinary assembly today, electing a new bishop. The assembly elected the skilled and experienced Pastor Benjamin Ojeda (a former bishop, and retired pastor), who will now have to "endure" the tough job ahead of him. Please keep Pastor Benjamin and the new administration in your prayers during this time of transition.
