Visiting with Pastor Carlos

Well I had the privilege to go visiting today with one of our close friends and pastor here in his community where he is serving as pastor at the Church on the Rock. The name they call the church is "Sun of Righteousness" but everyone else knows it as the church on the rock. We went walking around from house to house praying, evangelizing, and even singing with the people. It was so awesome to see the relationship that the pastor has with the people in his church and in the village. Everyone knows him and seems to really appreciate him. I loved watching and listening to how he interacted with and loved on the people there. He is very tender and patient with them. We saw everything from real medical necessities to simply needing to talk and someone to listen. He even sat and sang hymns to a 90 year old man who can't leave the house any more because he can't walk. I was very moved and hope that I can continue learning how to love on the people God puts in my life and for me to minister to like the pastor is doing at the church on the rock. And I hope this challenges y'all to think about those people God has put in your path to minister to and love on as well. We are recognized as His disciples by our love! Go make disciples and love on some folks!! We are going to start this at least one day a week and see if it goes to other villages or just there for now. Y'all please pray for us as we enter each house for God's love to fill each person and for the Spirit to touch the hearts to see and understand. I had a great time! There you go....
