I am grateful to Our Lord, Jesus Christ for allowing us this opportunity. I have been working on bringing something like this to our region for the last 5 years. This certificate program will be offered in both English and Spanish languages with all the class and reading to be in perspective language. We will be offering online courses in both languages and supplemental intensives in every state in our region. Both Isabel and I are grateful for the opportunity to grow our region with this “Educational Thrust.” – Bishop Jesse Yañez, Regional Presiding Bishop
