Sunday Service

This morning, Tyler delivered a powerful message to the congregation and shared his life story with us.

We started today by putting down ceramic tiles in the church building. We are continuing the work that was started by groups before us! It’s really cool to see the fruit of many visits.

Time Shared with the Mothers

by Agata Dueck | February 20, 2024 9:10 AM

While the kids had a story and games, a group of us women read Proverbs 31 with the mothers and focused on the value God sees in them as women. It was a blessing to see them understand better their value before God.

It’s special to work hand in hand with the church men that are putting down tiles. Even though there is a language barrier, we can communicate in small ways and help them out. They encourage us and make us want to give our best and it’s so fun!  ~Alyssa

A Special Time

by Kimberly Perez | February 22, 2024 1:17 AM

Today we shared our afternoon with the women of the community. It was a very special time in which we made bracelets, painted our nails and sang together.

We also had a devotional and we remember that God loves us and we must put our trust in Him and not believe the things others say about us.

A Special Time

We are Family

by Kimberly Perez | February 22, 2024 1:25 AM

We have had beautiful days meeting the women of the community, and it has been amazing to hear some of their testimonies.

After enjoying the afternoon, we took this photo all together, and it is only to say that we are already family!

We are Family

Blessed to be a Blessing!

by Agata Dueck | February 22, 2024 8:16 AM

Today was our last day of food distribution. Once more it was a blessing to share time with the families that we visited. We walk away with so much to thank God for and a heart for the people in the community. 

Blessed to be a Blessing!

Sweat, Smiles and Jesus

by Agata Dueck | February 22, 2024 8:27 AM

Final day with the kids of the community. After the Bible story we had a blast creating hats and swords from balloons and then getting chased by the kids with them. It’s been a joy to spend time with them and in that way show them the love of Jesus.

Women’s Night

by Agata Dueck | February 22, 2024 9:07 AM

“The women of Sardinal are full of so much hope, life and joy in the midst of many hard circumstances. They came to women’s night with hunger for God's word and to join in community to worship Him. Not only did we hear and share many stories of God's faithfulness, but we were able to experience His presence with over 60 women praising Him at once.” ~ Ashlyn

Rest day!

See You Later!

by Agata Dueck | February 23, 2024 6:36 PM

We started has strangers but tonight we have a family, hoping and praying that God will allow us to see each other again. The see you laters were bittersweet, sweet because it was beautiful how God was in the midst of these new friendships. Pastor José gave an amazing message of how companionship should be like a cord of three strands, it is not easily broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12) 


See You Later!
