Highlights from San Francisco
Yesterday we spent the day in San Francisco. Two years ago there were 12 people meeting and studying the Bible. This past Sunday there were 82 people that came together to sing, give testimonies, give offerings and hear the Word of God proclaimed. Gloria a Dios! (Glory to God!)
We spent the day training the teenagers how to share their faith using evanglism bracelets. The teenagers were very attentive and at the end were able to share the Gospel message to all. Let's pray that they will have the boldness to declare their faith as Paul prayed for in Philippians 1:20.
We also trained the pastors and leaders in the morning. We had a great time of Bible study and discussion about how the church is to be organized. The leaders were very eager to learn and asked many questions. I am convinced that we need to spend a significant amount of time every trip we make to Nicaragua training the pastors and leaders. This could make a huge difference in the growth and stability in the church.
In the afternoon we went out into the community inviting them to come to the worship service. It was great seeing our teenagers and adults going door to door inviting people they have never met to come and hear the Gospel presented. They did a wonderful job without any hesitation. After that we went to the town center and played Futbol with many children and teenagers. There were so many who wanted to play we had to break into four different teams. When it was time to go we invited them all to come to the worship service.
We went back into the area of the community and set up the sound system for the service. Many of those we met while going door to door came. Many that we played Futbol with came. Lander Ryan played with the worship band and Josh Ehlers preached from Mark 2:1-12 about the paralytic man who was lowered through the roof by his friends to be healed by Jesus. Josh did a great job sharing Christ to all present. Let's pray that the message they heard will bring forth fruit in the days to come.
It was a great day! Thank you for continuing to pray for us and for those we are sharing Christ. Please pray for the service we will be having in El Platanal tonight.
