Everything Begins in the Heart

by Zoe Pérez | November 26, 2023 3:24 PM

This morning, pastor Fidel was preaching about Psalm 139:23-24

 “Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!”

God always talks to our hearts; it is where everything begins!

Praying for the Pastors

by Zoe Pérez | November 26, 2023 3:39 PM

We had the opportunity to pray for pastor Fidel and his family. To encourage him and to remind him that God has control over everything. He said that he loves to pray for others but this time we want it to bless him with prayers! Keep them in your prayers!

Praying for the Pastors

How do we keep going when we think there is no more hope? That was our question in women's ministry. A question that almost everyone asks. 

Alia reminded us through her testimony that there is hope in every single blessing, there is hope in the eternal life that we have in Jesus, there is hope in this reality, today! 

There is hope!!



by Ishi Vega | November 27, 2023 1:13 PM

One of our projects is to paint the inside walls of the sanctuary, as well as fix some parts of the roof. We sanded and painted some of the walls and hope to have everything finished in the next few days of ministry.
