Ingrid Roldan- Roman Portrait
Ingrid ministers in Panama through the Federation of Baptist Associations in Costa Rica. The area in which Ingrid lives and ministers is near the Costa Rican border. Her ministry extends to both sides of the border, encouraging churches and Christian leaders in Panama and Costa Rica. She is also involved in theological education through the Theological Center for the Caribbean, based in Limon, Costa Rica. The Theological Center of the Caribbean aims to renew local churches by responding to their specific leadership training needs and by promoting a holistic outreach in their communities.
She writes of recent flooding: Some of you have heard about the terrible floods that we have had in Sixaola, Costa Rica, where I am doing pastoral work in addition to my ministry in Changuinola, Panama. Sadly, the first floods occurred this past November and now again this week.
I ask for your prayers for this community that has been hit so hard.
We used the church’s boat to make pastoral visits and to bring supplies to our brothers and sisters who were isolated by the floods.
• Please pray for us and for the work of cleaning and rebuilding. The classes in Sixaola were to have begun on February 9, but they will have to wait.
