Marvin Gustavo Espinoza Ramirez
I was born in Progreso, Yoro, Honduras and was baptized in 2011. After living most of my life in a way that did not please God, one day an evangelist came to me and shared the Good news of salvation and I was converted to Christ. Eight months after I became a Christian, one of my sons was struck by a car and passed away. Eight months later, we learned about BICA ,and I made the decision to leave everything and to be committed to study the Bible. I had come to Bica in order to serve in a better way to the Church, not knowing that the Lord was calling me to serve Him at BICA. It has been 8 years of been at BICA. Two of those years as one of the students and the rest in different roles. Beginning 2017, I was nominated as Director. My goal is to contribute to make BICA great and help to understand that we are just partners in the Lord’s work. Up to now, we have developed a strong relationship with the churches in Honduras, and we hope that this will continue growing. God is great and only with his power we will be able to accomplish the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ. Mat. 28:18-20.

I was born in Catacamas, Olancho, Honduras. I was taken to the Church of Christ since I was a child by my parents. When I was 11 years old, I was baptized and in that same time I realized that I was not living with my real mother, but my stepmother. At that time I was deeply confused and even attempted to take my own life, but God had other plans for me. Every year BICA came to my home congregation I got a lot of relief and also thought that I could be one of those students. After I reached my 18th birthday, my father put me in a bus in direction to El Progreso in order to enroll at BICA. So, I became a student at BICA on 2011 & 2012. It was a great experience to be part of the Bica family. I developed a close relationship with God. Now after several years related to this institution, the only thing that I can say is: I want to let the Church know all around, that BICA is a tool where men and women can be trainned in order to serve the Lord in a better way. Also, I realized that God has all the control in this institution.
