Spirit, Soul, and Body Study

We started looking at this book, Spirit, Soul, and Body by Andrew Wommack, to see if it's something we'd like to implement into our Leadership Training teaching. Right away, we saw that this was very helpful. We've been teaching about our Identity in Christ through Freedom in Christ Ministries for a number of years now, and this book has made things even more clear in our understanding. It is a true blessing and is something we will definitely implement.

In this video, I have Pastors Luis, Goyo, and Amado share a very brief comment on how they've been impacted by reading and studying this book.

Thanksgiving Dinner 2020

Friday night (Nov. 27) we hosted a dinner for the families of four pastors and other leaders. It was a wonderful time of fellowship with 35 people including children. I shared a little about America’s true history of when the Pilgrims first came and how the first Thanksgiving feast was celebrated. We went around the room and shared with each other what we are thankful for and it was probably the highlight of the evening. People are mainly thankful for being able to be part of a ministry where people genuinely love God. We are thankful for all of our brothers and sisters who came and it was a great blessing to be able to celebrate and be thankful to God together.

 

Geña cooked two turkeys, five pies, and a number of other things over the period of two days while Emma decorated the house with a little help from her sister, Mackenzie. I made the coffee .

 

Thank you to all whom pray for our family and our local pastors here in La Cofradía United. We are blessed because of you and are thankful for your partnership as we Raise Up Leaders in Rural Mexico together.


Here are some pics from the evening...













Grace Conference 2020

It is always a joy to be able to share about God's love and grace. This course on Grace has impacted my life personally as it has opened my eyes up to how much God really loves us. Just the fact that He loved us even when He was the last thing on our mind is incredible. He loves us, accepts us, and wants the best for us. That is a great motivation for loving Him.

This conference is supposed to be extended to 6 or 7 weeks of meetings. Because of so many that come from out of town, we have done this over a period of three days.

The message is that we love and obey God because we want to, not because we "have to." It's an amazing thing to understand God's love for us. Once we do, we will be motived by love instead of the false motivations that we get tangled into sometimes: guilt, shame, fear, pride.

Freedom in Christ is accessible. It's a freedom to obey God and not be enslaved by sin anymore.


Thank you for investing in God's Kingdom and helping us Raise Up Leaders in Rural Mexico.

Cofradia Kitchen


I was with Isabel and Mati on Friday afternoon at the "Cofradia Kitchen" while they gave the once-a-month birthday lunch to the kids who had a birthday. It was open to all those who normally come to the breakfast they serve in the mornings. I had Isabel say a couple things and took a few photos/videos. Here's the video...
