Colombia 2015 Trip

Partners

Mari Beth Poor

As the Colombia trip comes to a close, I am reminded what a gift it is to partner with people around the world. There is something so special about seeing how God is moving everywhere.

Manuel and Sandra Zarate (two of the missionaries we support in Colombia) and the church they have planted- Vida Bogota- need our prayers. As we have shared, part of their outreach is to community leaders in Bogota. In a place where the church is known as being terribly corrupt (to the point that one minister has his congregants call him Jesus...I'm not kidding), change needs to happen. 

As these leaders are changing...as their influence is used to honor God in a good way, in a God way....the reputation of the church in Colombia CAN and WILL be changed. We watched on Sunday as 11 people at Vida Bogota got baptized- their lives have been changed by Jesus and they have experienced the freedom that God provides. And then on Monday morning, they will go into their workplaces and share with their family and friends that God is REAL, that He is TRUE, that he is NOT corrupt...and the Gospel spreads and other lives are changed.

So, continue to pray for the Zarates, for Vida Bogota, for Colombia-  and consider going on a short term trip with us next year so you can taste and see what God is doing there. Ciao.
