Anniversary Revival in Las Delicias

I have a lot of catching up to do, so many things going on it's hard to keep it all straight. Back in October the Las Delicias church celebrated their anniversary as a church. It's been two years already that Roberto and his family have been pastoring there. God has definitely blessed this work. We have seen major changes in many people. They celebrated with a weekend of special services and invited some area churches to join them for the services. It was exciting
We called pastor Julio from Nicaragua to come and preach and to minister in song with Nemecio. These two guys are an awesome team. The people didn't want them to stop singing! Here they are getting tuned and ready for the service. Nemecio is an incredible singer, songwriter and guitar player.
They almost lifted the roof off with their singing. I love to listen to them sing.
Check out Nemecio's left-handed playing. The strings are not reversed either.
Julio preached some excellent sermons. The first night a young man prayed to be saved.
You have to come and try the food at Las Delicias. You can't find refried beans, or tortillas as good as they make them in Las Delicias. Mmmmmm soo good.
I love this picture of Jose. Here is the man who prayed for seventeen years to have a church in his village, a reminder to never give up praying. He was thrilled to be celebrating the church's second anniversary, to have his son as the pastor and he was also celebrating his own anniversary. The wrinkles in his face speak of a hard life, a man of the earth who loves to farm and work hard.
On Saturday afternoon I had some free time to wander around and take some pictures. I thought I would share a few of my favorites. Here is the old dirt road that runs through the village. I think it shows the rugged and rustic life of the people that live here.
The old hand pump that symbolizes the quaint and simple life of Las Delicias.
A farming community.
I found the design of this tree intriguing, almost like a monster with extended arms.
It's always interesting to stop and watch the ants. 
On Sunday our people from Las Uvas and Tiloarque arrived to be part of the revival. 

Happy Anniversary to Jose and Moncha. haha
Great pastoral family. Hard workers, prayer warriors, and faithful servants. About five years ago their lives were on the rocks, today they are standing on the the Rock of Ages
At the end of the service on Sunday we took group photos of each of the churches that was represented. Here is the Las Delicias group.
Here was the Las Uvas representation.
Last but not least was the Tiloarque representatives.
Thank God for a wonderful revival. A bright future lies ahead.
