Sometimes things in life takes time and that is what we are figuring out here for ourselves. As much as we would like to see everything completed that's just not realistic. Instead of looking at what needs to be completed, we are choosing to look at what has been completed and where we are going.
February has been a month of preparation for us more than anything else. We are marching towards the things that are in our hearts, knowing God has a task in hand for us to complete. The vision is burning in our hearts more and more as we see the light of its beacon calling out to us. With great anticipation we know the fruit of our day to day labor is coming forth.
Pastor Favio was trained in San Pedro Sula this month to become a teacher for the "Adult Reading Program" that will be started in April. Soon we will see it in full swing. Young and old a like will be in class reading for the very first time in their lives, making a huge 180 degree turn for them and possibly for their families. What better opportunities will be coming their way, is my question? For the first time, they will be able to read God's Word, something that so many of us take for granted. A whole new world will be opened up to them.
Pastors have and always will be burning in my heart. They are the pillar in the body of Christ. God uses them in a mighty fashion to move forward the Kingdom of God. In February we had our very first pastors meeting where we teach and train them the Word of God. We ministered on, "Be Like Jesus to Bring Change." What a wonderful teaching it was by encouraging the pastors to look at Jesus to see how he was used to touch the lives of the people. Being a vessel for the Kingdom of God, pouring out God's love and power into the hearts of those that they minister too.
Soon, we will be seeing the church erected in La Laguna. Celebrating Jesus with the people of the community. Watching God use Pastor Favio to move them from a place of hopelessness and poverty to applying God's Word and principles to their lives. Them realizing that God can and will change their lives for the better forever!! Glory be to God in the highest for his goodness and mercy!
Thank you to all that is standing behind us in prayer and financial support. We all will never know the true impact of our collective work for his Kingdom. Who will say to us in heaven, because of you, I am here.
