A Celebration – A New Birth
All of us who participated in praying for them and building the church felt the energy. We were glowing with gladness and filled with gratitude for God’s goodness.
A Dream Realized
Victor and Sol said they have been praying for seven years for a moment like this. God answered. He came through!
The Lord’s Spirit was very present during the service. One of the American pastors, David Feiser, who came down from Bellflower said he felt the Spirit moving as we worshipped.
The highlight of the service was when Pastor Daniel Nuñez lead us in the laying on of hands and anointing of Victor and Sol. I felt privileged to lay hands on them and pray for them along with the other pastors from Lo Mejor del Trigo present.
Victor and Sol cried tears of joy as they embraced. It was a special moment.
I always feel like the establishing of a new church is the highlight of the year for us. Especially for those churches that we are more directly involved in building and getting started.
A New Work Begins
As I had the opportunity to share during the service, the work is just beginning. Yet it’s off to a great start. This church is called to be a light in the community. That the gospel will shine forth brightly and bring freedom to many in the community of Plan Libertador and beyond!
I gave Pastor Victor and Sol a charge from Colossians 4:2-3:
“Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison—”
I encouraged all those there to continue in prayer for Victor and Sol and this new church. I’d like to ask you to do the same. Lift them up in prayer. Plead to the Lord on their behalf, asking the door for the word may be open so that they can declare the mystery of Christ.
In my charge I encouraged Victor and Sol to faithfully proclaim the gospel and to be a light in the community. O Lord, that many will come to faith as a result of the witness of this church. Hallelujah!
God is so good. Praise him for his goodness!
In His Grip, Dave
