Our days were long, and our sleep was short, but our experiences were unmeasurable. Each morning we took the nearly two hour trek from the hotel to the mountain to spend the day working alongside Cristo el Salvador in their mission to reach the people of Jicamarca. Our mornings were filled with hugs, smiles and broken conversations with children who were excited to see us and hear about Jesus.
We are commanded in Scripture to pray for our leaders (I Timothy 2) and to commit each other to the Lord (Acts 14:23), so here are a few ideas of specific things to pray for.
One of our team’s assignments for the week was to lead the church in a marriage conference. We conducted several sessions teaching scriptural principles on the roles of husbands and wives, and parents and children.
Our students got to see what Christ is up to in the most lost major city in North America (99.3% of the population are unbelievers).
I love Swift Creek Baptist Church, and I love being the Student Pastor here. I love the gospel. I have now been serving here for three years. The Lord has been so good. Here are eight gospel reflections on what I have learned along the way.
With so many countries represented, ESL at Swift Creek is an amazing opportunity to reach many parts of the world with the Gospel.
What a blessing it was to “connect” with these precious brothers and sisters (hermanos y hermanas) in Lima, Peru. They truly embody the mission of Swift Creek in a new and exciting way.
But if you’re anything like me, much of my life I didn’t believe that I had a story. At least not a story worth sharing. My life was pretty bland in my own eyes.
This year at DNOW, there were at least 7 salvations, 8 people who wanted to be baptized, and at least 12 people who have a desire to serve on missions or in ministry.
It seems like the one area within the church that can never have too much help is serving one of our most vulnerable and impressionable groups: our children.
