We are approaching the halfway mark of our trip and I would love to fill you in on how things are going. Our team is ministering in two communities, El Montana and Los Higos. We have served in several capacities including: painting two houses, laying down a paved entranced into the EL Montana church, enlarging and replacing church windows for better security, going on three days of sports ministry outreach, youth rallies and preaching at two different churches. We have lead worship in Spanish, performed two different dramas at church and several from our team have already shared their testimonies. All of this in just the first 6 days.
Recently we re-calibrated ourselves at Los Calabazos. Los Calabazos is this beautiful mountain river community nestled in a valley in between the mountains of Jarabacoa. It was steep climb in and out of this tucked away hideout. We came to Los Calabazos to intentionally connect with God. Even Jesus pulled away from ministry to connect with the Father, how important than for us to do so also. The team was instructed to find a spot along the river to pray, read, draw, meditate, speak to, listen in to what God was speaking to them. They did this individually. Our desire is that all ministry flows out and through our relationship with Christ, abiding in Him is key.
Pray for our health as some have been feeling sick lately. We also are very active at the work sites, sports ministry camps and youth rallies so prayer for endurance and good sleep.
Pray for team cohesiveness as it will be tested
Pray for those preaching at the youth rallies and churches, drama presentations
Pray for the Spirit to do a work in our hearts and that God would ultimately receive the glory!
