Abstract
My goal in this integration project is twofold: 1. To highlight through a biographical approach the problems and stereotypes that Puerto Ricans and Pentecostals face; 2. To outline some criteria that will help seminaries and other church related institutions meet the spiritual, psychological and political needs of Hispanics. In order to accomplish these goals I find it necessary to weave together three stories: my island, my life and my vision for the theological education of my people. It is most important to trace at a glance the history of the small Caribbean Island from its early inhabitants the Taino Indians, through the brutal conquest by the Spanish, and later in the 18th Century the domination and possession of the island by the United States and the alienation and assimilation of the Puerto Rican people in New York City. This book, thus deals with my limited experiences. It is only, and no more, an experience subject to modifications and enrichment.
