This week has been a not so good week for our household. Either the Lord is trying to teach us something or Satan is attacking us. We had a car accident to start off last week. It is a long story. To make it short, a wreck that was not our fault ended up being made our fault and we had to pay almost all expenses for the person who caused the wreck and still have to get our car fixed. Praise the Lord no one was hurt in the accident! One of our daughters was a little sore for a couple days, but nothing major. Our microwave also decided to stop working and so far is not fixable. Our gas heater stopped working but before it did we had fire coming out of the top of the valve. Once again we praise the Lord for protecting us and keeping the bottle from exploding! Rebecca and the girls are all sick as well! I am glad that last week is over and a new week has already started. God is good all the time and He is working all things for our good and His glory!
Well the old saying our mom’s always told us “Don’t play in the street!” doesn’t matter 2 Sundays of the month in our district of San Jeronimo. Every 1st and 3rd Sunday, San Jeronimo has a “ciclovia”. Basically they close down an entire section of the main road for almost 2 miles and everyone that wants to can play games in the streets. For the past few months our church plant has been walking around the different areas (after our morning service) handing out church information and giving away candy and balloons. This month we tried something different since we are on the 1st floor. We started at 10 a.m.(before our service), and we set up out front our building and played some games. We tried to get others to come play with us so we could talk to them and get to know them. Unfortunately, that didn’t work out too well. We also made balloon animals for many children and while we made them balloon animals we were able to talk to their parents about our church. We were also able to give out John and Romans with a video entitled “What is the gospel?”. All in all it was a great morning. I’m not sure if we will do things the same next month, but it was a good experience. On a side note, Natali and Neomi loved being able to play in the street! I don’t have any pictures of this morning, but here are some pictures of our kid’s club.
This morning we had our first service in the first floor of our building. For the past year we have been renting the 2nd and 3rd floors. After much prayer the Lord answered our prayers and the owners came down $200.00 in price. We now rent out the 1st and 2nd floors. Many of our people were very surprised this morning when they found the normal entrance doors closed!
