Bible Study with the Firefighters
We had a group come down from St.. Louis, Missouri from Summit Church to work with the local volunteer fire department. It was an amazing week of training and getting to know the firefighters. And now the doors have been opened to minister to the firefighters. The director of the fire station here in Chiquimula is a Christian and gave me permission to come every Friday to give a Bible devotion to the men and women before some of them start their work shift and before the others there from training go back home. We did our first week of Bible study together two weeks ago and had about 22 or 25 there. They received an emergency call and a few of them left before I got an accurate count. I also had another guy from our local church, Eduardo, who came with me to help teach and pray with these firefighters. We spoke on the house on the rock and the house on the sand. There are a few there that are already Christians and know the Word. They were adding comments and scriptures to help teach the lesson! I was amazed and encouraged! And Eduardo also was a huge help explaining things and praying for them at the end. I was thinking to take about 15 minutes to share a message and pray for them. But many of them were adding comments or asking questions that we ended up staying for almost 45 min. But it was wonderful!! I was not able to go this past Friday b/c we were finishing a week of helping a group of eye doctors. But Lord willing I am going to pick it back up this Friday. I also plan on giving them some type of food once a month to show our appreciation for their work, and so they can have a break of having to listen to me. Haha I also am trying to plan a night were I can show them the movie Fire Proof and give them the devotional book that goes with the movie to do at home. Please pray with me that God will continue opening the doors and continue blessing these firefighters. Also pray for their relationship with Christ to either start or grow deeper! God is good!!
