“The Church is the Church only when it exists for others…not dominating, but helping and serving. It must tell men of every calling what it means to live for Christ, to exist for others.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Sunday in San Pedro Sula has been a huge blessing. We had the opportunity to attend three church services, two at Impacto, and one at Paraiso de Villa Nueva.
We meet this young man named Moses, who is the son of the pastor in Paraiso de Villa Nueva. He was wise beyond his years and a true leader in the church. From wrangling the youngsters to sharing with adults about his life and faith, Moses was a huge blessing. He was telling Shannon about where he lives and what the living situations is like for him. He said, “You don’t need things in this world, at the end of the day it’s just gonna be your faith when it’s you standing in front of God.” It’s such a powerful reminder that the things of this world will fade away and our faith in Jesus is all that matters in the end.
As we were leaving Moses gave a heartfelt farewell speech and assured us that we are his family and that we will always be welcome in his home and church. We were all touched by Moses’ love for Christ and how that love shines through in everything he does.
We are reminded that we worship one God even though we live in a different culture and have a different language we are unified through Christ.
It’s been amazing to see how God has been working in this community and city.
We met this man named Solomon. He’s a lawyer who works for the mayor and became a Christian about a year ago. He’s been on fire for Christ and bold in sharing his faith with those in his office.
He invited us to his office after the service as he had prepared a special lunch for us. It was some of the best food we’ve ever had! Solomon went above and beyond, not only in providing the lunch but serving and making sure everyone was comfortable.
As he’s been boldly sharing the gospel in an office that most likely would be closed off to Christianity, you can plainly see the impact he’s had on these guys. Many of them came to the office on their day off to help prepare and serve lunch. You can see his servant’s heart rubbing off on others.
Please continue to pray for our team and the work God is doing through us and with us.
