Worshiping in La Puerta & More

Peace and glory.

Today Sunday we started worship in the La Puerta Church. It was a marvelous worship in honoring the Sovereign.

We are having worship in the first floor that can hold 200 people, and there is room for the children. We are very happy and we have proposed to finish the second floor by December. We pray that we may celebrate Christmas in the new sanctuary.

On Friday a new indigenous group arrived at the Hogar asking that we support their children that are suffering from hunger and poor health. But we have a problem in that they don’t speak Spanish. We told them to wait until we get to know one another better in this new relationship and look for help. We shared with them rice, wheat, oil, lentils. They left happy and agreed to return in October.

The four children from Uraba arrived. They came to live at the Hogar. I will take their pictures so that you know them and can look for support for them. Two of them can be supported by the Sunday school at Tenth Church.

I was not able to have the conference in Hotel Sol Aruhuaco because of a lack of funds. We postponed it until September.

Pray for my wife Ester so that she does not have to be operated upon again [laser eye surgery]. She is going on Tuesday for a consultation.

Construction work has already begun on the school at the Hogar.

We have a lot of work. On Tuesday I’m going to start a work with a group of professionals that I am discipling. They told me that they wanted to study the Bible and invite their friends. Let’s pray for Monica who is a leader that is contacting the rich people of the city and has invited me to teach the Word.

Tomorrow we have our television program. I will preach and lead in prayer. The theme is the Solas and I only have 15 minutes. They give me time of 1 hour, going four times per week. The cost is 1,200,000 pesos per month. We are looking for someone to support this ministry. Many people who hear me by radio and television are being called [by the Lord] and made uncomfortable by the doctrines of grace. Would it be possible to find someone who can support this ministry of radio and television?

At this time we are seeing more clearly how God letting us get to know more people to whom we can preach the gospel. We are hoping that in 2009 we can have a better national budget so that we can do more. We are hoping that God sends workers to his harvest, Susanna, and all that the Sovereign calls.

I ask that your efforts in the grace of God always support us. My passion for the kingdom of God on the Coast is quite strong and I want to spend it in the service only in the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Your missionary journeys feed us with love for those who don’t know Jesus Christ. We know that our work in Jesus is not in vain.

Peace evangelistically.

Paz y gloria.

Hoy domingo comenzamos el culto en la Iglesia La Puerta. Fue un culto maravilloso para honrar al Soberano.

Estamos realizando el culto en el primer piso donde entran 200 personas , y hay espacio para los niños.

Estamos muy contentos y nos hemos propuesto terminar el segundo piso para diciembre. Oremos para que podamos celebrar la Navidad en el nuevo templo.

El viernes llegó al hogar un nuevo grupo indigena pidiendo que apoyemos a su hijos, quienes estan sufriendo hambre y enfermedad, pero tenemos un problema, ellos no saben hablar español. Les dijimos que esperaran para encaminar mejor esta nueva relación y buscar ayuda. Compartimos con ellos arroz, trigo, aceite y lentejas.
Se fueron contentos y quedaron en volver en octubre.

Llegaron los niños del Urabá, son 4. Llegaron para vivir en el Hogar. Voy a tomarles fotos para que los conozcas y busquemos apoyo para ellos, dos de los cuales pueden ser apoyados por la escuela de la Décima Iglesia.

No pude dar la conferencia en El Sol Aruhuaco por falta de presupuesto. La aplazamos para setiembre.

Oremos por mi esposa Ester para que no la vuelvan a operar. Ella va el martes a consulta.

Ya comenzaron las obras de construcción de la Escuela del Hogar

Tenemos mucho trabajo. El martes vamos a comenzar un trabajo con un grupo de personas profesionales que estoy discipulando , ellos me pidieron estudiar la biblia e invitar a sus amigos.

Oremos , por Mónica que es una líder que está contactando a la gente rica de la ciudad y me invita para que enseñe la palabra, Mañana tenemos un programa de televisión , voy a predicar y hacer oración . El tema es las Solas, sólo tengo 15 minutos. Me dan un espacio de una 1 hora, pasando 4 veces por semana , el espacio vale 1.200.000.por mes, estamos buscando quien nos patrocine.

Mucha gente que me oye por la radio y la televisión está siendo llamada e inquietada por las doctrinas de la Gracia.

¿Será posible buscar a alguien que nos apoye en el ministerio de la radio y la televisi?3n?

En este tiempo vemos más claro cómo Dios nos está llevando a conocer más gente para predicar. Esperamos que en el 2009 podamos tener un mejor presupuesto nacional y hacer más. Esperamos que Dios envíe obreros asu mies, Susana, y todos los que el Soberano llame. Te ruego que tu esfuerzo en LA GRACIA DE DIOS siga siempre apoyándonos, mi pasión por el Reino de Dios en la Costa es bastante fuerte y quiero entregarme completamente al Servicio de la proclamacion del Evangelio de Jesuscristo, sus viajes misioneros nos alimentan de amor por los que no conocen a Cristo. Sabemos que nuestro trabajo en Cristo no es en vano.

Paz evangelizadora,

La Puerta is Growing

The church is growing. New families are arriving. Every Sunday we will have a bulletin, emphasizing confessing the Apostles’ Creed. Some members of the church are motivated to serve.

This Wednesday we had a Bible study in La Puerta Church with 15 people. Every Wednesday we will be meeting from 7 to 9 pm. All acknowledged that we have needed this place to worship.

The women missionaries that are translating the Bible for the Chimilas want us to meet in the La Puerta Church on Sundays. So on the first Sunday of September we will be meeting in La Puerta. The bathrooms are completed so that they can now start using the building.

Another thing is that new children are arriving at the Hogar. Four are coming from Uraba and three Chimila children. Castro and a carpenter will build the tables.

Every Monday we will have 15 minutes on the local television and every day we will be on a new radio station from 8 to 9 pm. We will be putting the Ligonier Ministries program on another station.

There is plenty to do.

Now at 6:00 pm I have a meeting in a hotel to present a program concerning visitation to the zone where the Chimilas live. Always pray for us. Remember that on the 29th I have to make a presentation in the Sol Aruaco Hotel on the true gospel.

Well family, until next time. Biblical peace.
