Puerto Rico 2

Yesterday was a full day but very rewarding.  We started with a brief tour of Wesleyan Academy in San Juan, a pre-school through 12th grade school that does all its courses in English (which sounds bad, until you realize that all the teachers are from Puerto Rico and the English orientation is considered an advantage).  Some of us stayed and brainstormed with them. Then others of us met with the Seminario Teologico which is a branch of Nyack in New York, with the Interamerican University, and with the Seminario Evangelico.

But the highlight of the day was meeting and eating with Wesleyans in the evening at the Caparra church.  Some of them were clearly passionate about extending the reach of Wesleyan higher education here.
