Four Churches, One God

by Fiorella Villafuerte | September 25, 2022 5:26 PM

We gathered with 3 additional churches together in one location! We sang to our Lord and praised His name! It was an amazing day that reminded us there any many churches but we all praise and worship one true God!

The day has come! We met Pastor Nelson and his church in Vasconia, Parrita! We were all excited and ready for everything God had for us!

As One in Christ

by Fiorella Villafuerte | September 25, 2022 5:36 PM

While Jesus was on earth, He prayed for many people for healing, for forgiveness, and for people to always feel the Father’s love.
We had the opportunity to pray over Pastor Nelson, his family, and ministry! We hope this week encourages Pastor Nelson and brings a breath of fresh air to the church and community. 
As One in Christ

Daniel

by Erick Gonzalez | September 26, 2022 9:42 PM

We had so much fun while making the craft for today. We helped the kids create their animals and represent Daniel and lion's den. Each kid had their own animal and placed their eyes, nose, and mouth on it.

God Cleans Us!

Walls are up

by Erick Gonzalez | September 29, 2022 11:02 AM

It has been an amazing week at the construction site. Working together had been so rewarding. Seeing everyone's love for this project and their work on the walls. The walls are up, and it is looking great now. We can't wait for the whole project done soon.

Let's do this together

by Erick Gonzalez | September 29, 2022 11:06 AM

As we walked on the community roads, we saw the importance that kids experience Food Distribution. They could see not only the community's needs but people's hearts, their love for God, and how God surprises them with a visit, a hug, a God Bless you, and a bag of groceries. And they also can see God's love, provision, and mercy for each person. His love never ends. 
Let's do this together

Going Everywhere
