On Palm Sunday Dawn and I celebrated the inaugural service with Lo Mejor del Trigo in Ribera de Bosque. Pastor Ivan and Rocio were radiant.

The church was packed with about 100 people. Pastor Daniel Nuñez prayed for and gave a charge to Ivan and Rocio. They were moved to tears as we gathered around them and prayed.

Privileged to be Part of God’s Expanding Kingdom

Dawn and I felt privileged to celebrate with them, and take part in the service. Such precious people, who love Jesus.

It was extra special that all three pastors from the churches that Harbor has helped start were at the dedication service. Pastor Leo and pastor Rodrigo also shared their gratitude for the work that we’ve done with them in helping them to get started!

Hallelujah! He is Risen!

It’s thrilling that this last Sunday, Easter Sunday they could worship in their new church. The gospel is going forth in the community of Ribera de Bosque. This is something that Ivan and Rocio have dreamed of for a long time.

I’m so grateful for our relationship with Ivan, Rocio and the rest of our friends with Lo Mejor del Trigo. They are a gift from our Savior.

Pray that the church will grow and that the Lord will give Ivan wisdom as he leads the people.

In His Grip, Dave
