Prayer Conference November 9-11, 2012

The Lord is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him in truth. He grants the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cries for help and rescues them. Psalms 145:18,19

 

This was our theme verse for the prayer conference. This was an awesome weekend of prayer! The program included concerts of prayer, a prayer walk in Rivas and evangelism in our local produce market, concluding with a Sunday morning service dedicated again to prayer.

In preparation for the weekend, Josh set up an invite on FB so people and supporters anywhere could join us by selecting a time to pray during the weekend.

Our church members posted flyers throughout Rivas … bus stops, businesses, metro line and high traffic areas of our town. We also distributed invitations by hand to individuals on the streets and in mailboxes. We’ve done this type of massive invitation before with no results, but this weekend we were blessed to have an entire family of four showed up because they saw our flyer at a bus stop. PTL! They continue to attend our church since that weekend. While others came to at least one of the weekend activities, because of the information posted all over town.

We would like to thank individuals that made an extra effort to attend the conference. Lori Glossenger from South Canaan, FMC in Pennsylvania; Dayana Nardi from Tampa Spanish FMC in Tampa, Florida and our Europe Director, Jerry Coleman, from Budapest, Hungary.

November Update

 

 

 

 

Thank you for reading our blog and being patient with me, as I get a bit better at blogging. I am thankful for all of you and your commitment to us .

 

What we’ve been up to the last few weeks… 

 

Participated in a town wide yard sale. Held twice a year once in the fall and the other one in the spring. Anyone can participate by signing up at neighborhood association.  The way it works is that we (participants) take what we want to sell to a designated public park and we all set up our little area like in a flea market.  Church members donated used items for the sale. We sold most everything; the money raised was used for the youth camping trip.

 

The youth had a 2-day camping retreat in “El berrueco”, part of a mountain range near Madrid. The main purpose of the retreat was to have the youth spend to days reconnecting with each other after the summer.  This was a spiritual retreat with team building activities. Please pray that we ca continue to invest in our youth for they are the future of our church.
