The Ladies Tea

On Saturday, I (Lisa) had the privilege of speaking that the Ladies Tea at the San Lorenzo Alliance Church. They asked me a few weeks ago and at first, I was going to say, "no." Speaking in public is not my favorite thing to do... how much more so speaking in Spanish. But, I could not find a good excuse I agreed to speak. When I agreed, I completely forgot that the week before the tea I had committed to go with Alison and her school to camp. That meant that I didn't have the time before-hand to worry about speaking. The camp went great and I enjoyed spending time with my precious daughter. When I came back on Thursday, John and I spent the next two days finishing up my talk.

In fairness, God used both my willingness and my weakness on Saturday. In the end, I am glad that I didn't have an excuse to decline the invitation. I was blessed, the ladies were had a great time and three woman gave their hearts to Jesus.

Thank you for your prayers... I could feel the support that God gave me through your prayers!!!

School Ministry...

Recently we (John, Rodrigo and Adrian - both are seminary students and part-time CMA Pastors in the Asuncion area) have been asked to come to a local public Middle/High school to teach the 7th graders how they can find true identity in God. This past Wednesday was our last week and we spoke about how Jesus has provided for our "real" identity.

The video below shows glimpses of our 1 hour long teaching. Using clay jars we spoke about how like Adam we, because of our sin, are broken and cannot be what we were intended to be. We also talked about how God has provided a well of pure, Living Water through Jesus Christ and that each of them could enjoy this Water. Surrendering our lives to Jesus is the only way to truly become all that we were created to be.

Thank you to the many who have been praying! These opportunities are a direct response to your prayers!
