First Day of VBS

by Francisco Martinez | July 1, 2019 12:28 PM

It is rewarding when you see their faces looking at you as they listen to the Bible story. We are planting seeds in these little ones. We may not see the fruit right now, but we will see them in the near future.

Sport Ministry

We went to the baseball field and enjoyed spending time with the kids from the community of Bonagua. The team connected very well with teenagers there.

Nursing Home Ministry

by Drema Jefferson | July 4, 2019 3:24 PM

While one group served with the kids in Bonagua playing a baseball game, another group served at a local elderly home in Moca. We sang, played volleyball with balloons and beachballs, painted fingernails, and we prayed and talked to many of the elderly. The sisters told us that many times families do not get to come out much to visit their parents and grandparents, so it was very special that we came out and spent time with them. We were able to share the love of Christ in a special way today.

Beach Time

Today we spent the day reflecting and spending time together at the beach. We had so much fun relaxing and hanging out after a very succesful week of ministry.

Baptism

by Drema Jefferson | July 4, 2019 6:02 PM

This evening was super special as we witnessed someone who wanted to be baptized. What an amazing representation of his new life in Christ. It just happened to be his birthday also, and our independence day. Today we are celebrating Anthony's baptism and what it signifies. We are thankful for our freedom in Christ, the sacrifice He made for us, and the chance to be baptized in Him.
