After years of delays, we finally had our day in court! The court appearance was last month was before a tribunal of 3 judges with the purpose of rendering a final judgment. They heard our 3 witnesses and both lawyers asked questions and then both lawyers gave a closing statement. It lasted over 3 hours. They said that they would render their decision in writing “in the near future”. As of today, we have not heard anything from them. News will be posted here and also on Facebook. Thank you for continuing to pray.
As things slowly move toward something “normal”, please pray for upcoming outreach events. There is a social-distanced talent show planned for March 20 in the gym where the gospel will be clearly shared.
Thank you for praying for the safari theme Talent Show held in the gym in Los Guido. It was the largest show of its kind to date with 26 acts and some 160 people in attendance. The fun and laughter lasted over 3 hours. Not only were there prizes and hamburgers for dinner, but the gospel was clearly shared focused directly at the many moms and dads that were at the church for the first time.
Please pray for the grocery bag ministry which continues this year as nearly 1000 families have received a bag since the first of the year.
The Lord has given us great favor in the grade schools. He has allowed us to be Light to thousands of students and many teachers and administrators and so we are excited to see that they are slowly allowing students back in the classrooms. The principal of one of the schools has already contacted us and asked if we would plan on being a consistent presence in the school for the entire school year which just started. Please pray for eternal fruit.
Pray for the advance of the gospel. Pray that it would penetrate the hearts of the adults as well as the youth. Pray that entire families will come to know Jesus Christ as Savior. Please pray for unsaved parents. It is obvious that the violence and abuse ends only when parents find Jesus.
Please pray for the ministry board that is responsible for directing and overseeing the entire ministry in all 3 countries. If you would like to pray for them by name, a photo and their names can be found here.
Please pray for Rosa, Lucrecia, Diana and Josefina - the ministry front line workers at the feeding center.
