Yesterday we felt like the devil was trying to discourage us, for everything that we did trying to get ready for the First Christian Nation Church Congress here was turning out backwards. Phillip was working on the translation of our church manual (that he needs to get to the printers this week) and everything was going wrong. Our bank was having problems so we couldn't get any money out to pay bills, etc.
I told Phillip that I felt that the devil was trying to get us down...and that in our weakness God is made strong. We prayed and God started helping us!! Praise Him!!!
Please do pray for the Christian Nation Church Congress! Please pray for those who are going to preach, and for Phillip as he translates all the sermons into Spanish for our people. Thank you!
We have had a wonderful Sunday! God's presence settled down on our service this morning as we sang hymns like "What a Friend we have in Jesus", "Amazing Grace", "He Lives", and "Tell it to Jesus!" Several us were crying as we felt the MASTER in our midst! God's presence makes all the difference in the world. God helped Phillip to preach a very encouraging sermon about God wanting to help us when we are down and discouraged, that he doesn't look at us and say, "They are down again, I think I'll leave them down.." No, he fans our faint flame, He is there to help us...for He wants us to get to Heaven more than we do ourselves!! God is awesome!!
We came home and had Juan Martin and 2 of his children and his nephew over for Sunday dinner. I hadn't planned to have company, but they all helped me and we had a yummy meal and a great time of fellowship. Then went to our Sunday night service.
Until Next time...Keep looking to Jesus!!!
