 Drs. Pamela and Claudio Consuegra with the Vice President of the Senate, the Honorable Edgar Espíndola  
On the last Sabbath of their vacation last week, Family Ministries Directors Doctors Claudio and Pamela Consuegra were invited to speak at the Senate Chambers in the Colombian capitol building in the capital city of Bogotá. An Adventist member who works at the capitol secured the meeting place and invited the Vice President of the Senate, the Honorable Edgar Espíndola, who welcomed those attending and who expressed his appreciation to the Seventh-day Adventist® Church in Colombia for making the event possible and for bringing the Consuegras to make this presentation.

Pam and Claudio spoke about what they know best –  marriage and healthy families. Upon arriving to the Chambers, the Consuegras were told that their presentation would be televised, live, for three hours on the government’s channel with a potential viewing audience of more than 34 million people in Colombia. In addition, the signal is sent to more than 139 other countries reaching untold millions!  

"Whenever we felt overwhelmed at the task before us we remembered that our friends in the NAD were praying for us and the promise given in the Bible in Matthew 10:19: '…do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say, for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour,'" said Pamela.
