Revival Review

We are thanking God for a phenomenal weekend revival at Tiloarque. It is hard to believe that the church is celebrating 7 years!!!! The best is yet to come!!
Israel Torres was the evangelist. God used him to minister to our hearts, to edify the church and glorify God. It was a privilege having him with us.
On Saturday of the revival we had a baptismal and baptized 8 new converts!!!!! This man's name is Gonzalo Moreno he is a retired English professor from University. For years he sought for truth visiting the Mormons, practicing Yoga, studying Eastern religions and for many years attending the Catholic church. But about a year ago he felt an impulse to stop and read our church sign. It said Evangelical Holiness Church. He said the word holiness caught his attention and he came to one of our services. He has been coming ever since. He gave his heart to God, found the peace that he has long searched for and is fervently serving the Lord. He is a tremendous encouragement to all of us. Thank God for His grace and mercy!!!
Pablo attends our Las Uvas church. He used to be an alcoholic. Now he has quit drinking and is serving Jesus Christ. He is originally from Nicaragua married to a Honduran. Just a few weeks ago they got married and their whole family is going to church. It is amazing what God can do!!
Pablo's wife Norma.
This is Nahum getting baptized. He is literally a walking miracle!! About a year or so ago he was in a terrible motorcycle accident. Doctors said he wouldn't live and if he did, he would be a vegetable. Well he lived. Doctors had to remove part of his brain and they said he would never walk. Well he is. When he first started coming to church he came in a wheelchair. Now he is walking with a cane. This guy can talk, he has memorized all kinds of Bible verses and he loves to testify about what God has done in his life. It was so exciting to baptize him!!!
We had a great bus ride to and from the baptism. Just an all around fun day.
Sunday morning of the revival the church was packed!! We had representatives from all three of our churches. Roberto even brought a group from Las Delicias.
During the Sunday morning services we handed out the baptismal certificates. This is Francisco. This young man has overcome incredible obstacles but is determined to serve God. Pray for him as you think of him. His mother is very sick and was hospitalized he is trying to be the father for his family.
Suamy is 15. Pray for her. She carries a lot of baggage from a very troubled past. She has suffered so many things. But she is overcoming and learning to grow in grace.
After the morning service everybody stayed for a fellowship meal. One of our church ladies prepared an amazing beef stew!! Mmmmm so good.
There were people everywhere!!!
Hannah worked with the young people on a skit. They presented the "Prodigal Son" during the Sunday afternoon service. God really helped them and many people commented that they were touched by the story. The little kids on the ground are the "pigs".
On Monday we took Israel and Gonzalo to Santa Lucia and Valle de Angeles. He had never been there before and very much enjoyed the quaint little towns.
Thank you to each who prayed for this revival. We felt God's presence in every service and many people sought God and got help. All praise and glory to Jesus Christ!!!

Hey guys, it's so exciting to see how God is working through you down there. The stories of the different new converts are awesome! Your blog posts are always interesting and professional. Thanks for keeping us updated!

What a wonderful blog. Jon and I are reading though the Gospels as we do every Easter Season.
This brought tears to my eyes as I saw that Jesus is still saving and delivering souls from all walks of life.
Praying for yall.
