We started our day with encouragement from Scripture from the lady who heads up the Missions Trip Event. After her powerful lesson on hands reaching out we prayed and headed out to different communities. Today was the day we went to a church plant to hold a small scale conference for the ladies in the surrounding communities. We had 50 ladies come to this event in the town of San Padro.
Our time with the ladies was wonderful. We really enjoyed meeting these ladies and sharing with them about the Lord. Many of them are concerned for their families. Each lady asked if we would pray for the salvation of their children or siblings. I was able to share with these ladies that God can use us no matter our position, talents, looks, or past. We had a wonderful time sharing with these ladies. We were able to pray over the ladies before we left and had a few come with very specific requests. Some even shared that they needed Christ. Even though they didn't accept Christ that day I will be excited to see how God answers those prayers.
God blessed us abundantly through these ladies. I am sure we learned more from them than they learned from us. If you have ever been to a church in a different country you know well that its not the building that is important, it's the people. It really confirms that the building is not the church, its the body of Christ that is the church. We saw how simple and rugged the conditions were, but in God's economy these things do not matter. God is all about the heart!
God is so good!
