Amazing Central America

Live School started in Central America in 2016 after the launch of the Spanish version of the curriculum in Guatemala City at SETECA Seminary. 

Soon after that, two businessmen from Columbia, South Carolina answered the call to roll-out Live School in the seven countries of Central America. These two seasoned businessmen, both in their seventies, are Bucky Drake and Jim Hartman, and together with William, who oversees the Live School operations in the Americas. They started the first schools in Guatemala and El Salvador towards the end of 2017.

We are so blessed that Bettie Colson, who lives in Guatemala and who coordinated the Spanish translation project of the Live School, has joined the Live School team and today does most of the oversight in the region. 

I was privileged to travel with Bucky, Jim, and the team on their trip to open up Live School in Nicaragua and Costa Rica. We held two pastors’ mobilization meetings, one in Managua, the capital of Nicaragua, and the other in a city called Perez Zeledon, which is about a three hour drive from San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica. Needless to say, I was inspired by the openness of the pastors and encouraged to hear their vision of seeing a renewal in the churches of these two countries.
