Time with Pastor Sergio!

We spent some time with Pastor Sergio, his wife Maria, and their son Jafet. During our time with them, pastor shared his testimonial about how he came to Christ and how God called him into ministry. We loved getting to know him and we prayed for him and his family, asking God to bless them and guide them in the amazing things He has in store for them.

We went to the grocery store to buy groceries for food distribution. It was a lot of fun to select the items that will go into the bags, and we feel grateful to be a part of this amazing ministry.

Praying for Open Doors!

by Maikel Pineda | April 7, 2024 10:08 PM

We took time to pray, not only for the bags to be a blessing for the families receiving them, but also for the families we will encounter this week. Although we don't know them and their struggles, we trust that God does. We pray for open doors and willing hearts to receive the gospel.

This morning we began our construction project at the church. We mixed concrete to lay down cinder blocks that will be a part of the foundation wall for the kitchen. Despite the heat and exhaustion, we were very determined to finish the work we had planned for today.

We had a lovely night with the women of the church. It was great to hear from them and support each other in our spiritual journey with the Lord. Moreover, we were blessed to witness three ladies reconciling with the Lord. God is genuinely moving here!
