Turn Up the Heat

Yesterday the temperature was 40 celsius which is 104 fahrenheit. Needless, to say it was warm enough without the interesting situations we encountered. First, in the salvation discipleship class I gave three of the children accepted Christ as their personal Saviour so that was awesome. Shortly, thereafter I received a phone call from someone in the office asking if I had my documents and ipod with me. I thought I did but when I went to check I realized I did not have them. I accidently left them in the Burger King while we were meeting up with someone before the class. They looked in my ipod and found my contacts and then called the first Salvadoran number they came across which happened to be the lawyer we work with for our Residency. He then called the office and the office called me. So I went back to the Burger King and the manager who found it gave it back to me. I was so thankful because she could have easily kept it. It was definitely a God thing. We also saw a motor…

Icon in El Salvador

Even when they call us mad, when they call us subversives and communists and all the epithets they put on us, we know we only preach the subversive witness of the Beatitudes, which have turned everything upside down.
- Archbishop Oscar Romero, an advocate for the poor and marginalized, was assassinated thirty years ago today while giving Mass in El Salvador.

Beach Ministry

Tuesday is the ministry day off so if there isn't a special event or teams I usually go to the beach to surf. Since I go so often I have become friends with some of the locals and created a friendship with them. We mostly talk surfing but I have been able to share my testimony with some of them. This past Tuesday it was like the Holy Spirit was just drawing people to Susanna and I. There are always many tourists and such so people always come up and talk to us. Countless times I have been approached simply by other travelers wanting to make conversation and I am able to share with them what I do and why I am a Missionary. We had two different people just come sit down beside us and start talking. One girl from Canada and a guy from Holland. I was really able to share a lot with the guy from Holland. He was very open even though he said he kinda follows Buddhas teaching. Susanna and I were stoked just to be able to share the gospel and how God is using us here with random str…

Raise Up an Army of Lay Down Lovers

I regret to inform my readers that Esau, Master's Commission graduate and Missionary who was kidnapped in November in Guatemala, was killed. I just recently found out and my heart broke for his friends and family. But I know that his reward in heaven is worth it. "If we die with Him, we will live with Him. If we move with Him, we will rule with Him. If we lay down with the lamb, we will roar with the Lion of Judah." -Martyr Song by Rick PinoI can't help but think four months prior to his kidnapping I was working in that same town and church. We have a rule in King's Castle for every 1 person that the enemy takes out we send 500. So during Holy Week starting this Saturday we are sending at least 500 warrior's to invade Guatemala city with the good news that Jesus Christ saves and is coming again. I am privileged to be in that number.
Revelation 12:11 " They overcame him by the blood of the lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love th…

What A Journey

This past month has gone by like a whirlwind. We had 7 teams within the month of March. I can truly say that the Lord has used many of the Pastor's and team members to speak into my life in which I am so thankful. I hope I was a blessing to all those who came as they were to me. I worked on the streets, hiked up mountains, walked the streets praying for people in their homes, prayed for cripples, loved on children, helped out in a feeding program, worked in an orphanage, worked with Master's Commission, felt the spirit of God in a powerful way in church, helped paint, and the list could go on and on. Over 2,000 people were reached with the gospel and over 850 people accepted Christ as their Saviour. What a privilege to be apart of this ministry.
