Dear Loved Ones, Friends and Partners in the ministry,
MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Another year of victory and marvelous blessings is about to pass and memories of God´s unfailing love and faithfulness will remain in our hearts as we face this coming year filled with His caring promises & abundant blessings. To all of you who along with us served the Lord through your prayers and support, we love you and are grateful for all your loving kindness shown to us throughout these years.
“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” – Ezekiel 36:26
About 500 participants from all over Spain, England, Portugal & USA enjoyed a three day annual conference in Valencia. Praise God for the opportunity for us three (Rey, Vivs & Daniel) to be able to attend along with our church leaders and networking friends Ptrs. John & Shiela (from England). The teachings shared were confirmations of what God has been revealing to us as a church. The accomplishments we are doing for God are not based on our own resources whether it be manpower, finances, etc. but solely on HIS PRESENCE AND HIS POWER! Thus the greater the challenge the more time we need to spend in HIS PRESENCE to experience HIS UNLIMITED POWER. Amen!
For the second time, Jose – (50 yrs old, a bachelor) attended our Thursday Cell Group. We prayed for him because of his critical health condition, cancer of pancreas. He was antagonistic of the gospel according to Jorge, (our CG host who invited him). But this time he was grateful that we prayed for him. Together, we enjoyed the dinner prepared for the group, not knowing that it was our last supper with him. After two weeks of absence, we found out that he was already buried. We trust that the time he prayed to accept the Lord was the gift given to Him by the Lord, even before He took him home. Indeed, life is short that we need to urgently grab every opportunity to win souls for Christ.
13 Youths were able to attend to a day´s retreat in Punta Prima, Menorca. We began with an English Breakfast then on to discipleship teachings. After a sumptuous lunch we did an inter-active workshop teachings. Our climax activity was a family time by the chimney fireplace together with the entire church that joined during our evening session. Rey dealt on 1 Thess.4 – on Second Coming, about 10 people accepted the Lord as a result. PTL!
The demonstration of God´s power was evident as people who didn´t have work for three months affected severely by the crisis after a united prayer got a job. About 4 of them testified of such a miraculous provision. The healing of Vero´s Mom & the child of a Nanny, the reconciliation of Mom & son, the provision for the church needs etc. All these have been happening since we started dedicating our Saturdays into prayer power fellowship. Hallelujah!
Praise God for how the Lord has been using Dani every time he teach in the Sunday School, preach during our Youth Night Service and minister to the youths. People are blessed. Glory be to God!
Please pray for our FIRE VISION Leadership Development Course to be held this January- March 2010, the weekend conferences in March for the couples, youths, ladies & family. Ptr. John & Sis shiela will help Rey in all the teachings. The MOVIDA Festival to be set up in Menorca for the first time. The multiplication of FIRE vision through our firsthand experiences in doing pioneering work here in Madrid and to the extension projects. Once again, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR PRAYERS AND SUPPORT.
