~God's Clock keeps perfect time.~

Wasn't that a good IHC? Our internet connection wasn't strong enough for us to SEE the Wednesday and Thursday services, but we were able to hear them. Lord willing, Felipe from our church here is going to record the services on a DVD so we can SEE the services. When we get the DVD...We are LOOKING FORWARD to seeing the last 2 services, for we went to our own church on Thursday night and didn't get to hear those.

On Easter Sunday afternoon Phillip felt on his heart to do a bunch of calling on people here in Colombia. He called on one house and when the lady opened the door Phillip greeted her and asked her how she was doing. She said just fine...and then burst into tears. She told him that just 2 hours or so before he had arrived, she had decided to take her own life. She was lying in bed with a bottle of pills and was going to take them to end it all. She is the mother of 5 children some of whom are still small and were just outside playing. PRAISE THE LORD, she realized that this was wrong, God sent someone to knock on the door at that moment and she decided against it. She told Phillip that GOD HAD SENT HIM to her!! Phillip prayed with her and for her. She had been living with a man that must be dealing with other powers, for she was seeing and hearing strange things that were scaring her. She asked that man to leave, but told Phillip to please pray that she would be strong if he came back to ask her to live there again. (They have lived together for 17 years!!)
She was in church with 2 of her children a couple Sunday mornings ago and happy to be there. I didn't have our camera so I didn't get a picture of her. But, her name is Christina. If you think of her, please pray for her and her children. Thank you! This world is full of hurting people...may we be HIS HAND extended to them! We are the only "jesus" some people will ever see.

Thank you for sharing this story! I love hearing how God still works today. I am going to go write Christina's name on our prayer list so we can pray for her.

So thankful that you were able to see part and hear the IHC. God is good to make that possible by touching your faulty computer. Isn't it wonderful that we serve the God not just of technology but the One that gave men the ability to create it! So thankful for Phillip following God's prompting and going where He led him to go. May God continue to work in Christina's life and others that you are serving. I love you, Moma

Wow! That is an amazing thing God did there! Praise God for your husband's sensitivity to the Lord's leading. I enjoyed this post. You will like the Thursday night service, I think... people were really seeking the Lord!

Heather did you know that all the services from IHC are archived on the IHC website?

Such a wonderful story of God's grace and power. Thanks for sharing.

What a wonderful story - thanks for sharing. It's thrilling to hear how God is using your family to reach those in Colombia.

I deleted the email you sent with the address you sent me awhile back. Do you mind sending the address again? Thanks!
