“ But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the
sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the
SURPASSING GREATNESS of knowing CHRIST JESUS MY LORD, for whose sake I have
lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain
Christ…” (Phil. 3:7-8) -> this is the essence of
Pastors Conference held in Monforte, Galicia. (Sept. 27-30 ’07) Rey’s association
with the local pastors gives him favorable credential to work with any local
evangelical church in Spain.
This is the platform he uses to maximize the effort of reaching cities &
towns with the Gospel using the creative performing arts. The relationship
with the pastors enables him to link with churches along with their
professional musicians and artistic ministries forming networks called ART
COMPANY network. As a result, evangelistic festivals are being set up, the
television program called “Repertorio” feature fresh talents and
new faces of artists testifying for God’s glory. And the ministry
could liberally promote unity and harmony among the family of God moving on
forward ravaging all forms and barriers of indifferences, religiosity,
denominationalism and legalism.
Integracion’ for the Evangelical Churches in Spain. A Historical event held at Pza. España last Oct.6-7’07.
The Spanish gov’t. could not help but recognize the evangelical
churches as legal churches and never to be categorized as a sect or a cult
group. The Lord performed a miracle that day, the storm stopped as a Pastor
boldly rebuked it through the microphone. The policemen ready to face the
counter attack of the opposition group didn’t bother to come because
the strike was cancelled due to the threat of a bad weather. Though it was
cloudy, there was no rain. Booths were set-up, most of the churches were
represented along with other Christian organizations. Evangelistic Festival
was held with songs, dances, mime, testimonies, gospel preaching and worship
celebration. Praise God, churches were impacted with our short performance
that we received a lot of invitation afterwards. Glory to God.
Torrijos Church revived
and mobilized. Last weekend (Oct.12-14), Pastor Mauricio from
Torrijos invited ART Co to train their youths in evangelism. Friday night:
we held personal evangelism workshop; Saturday morning: the youths learned
“I love Jesus ” pop dance. In the afternoon, the adults learned
mime and at night time along with the group we performed in two parks.
Youths crowded and people heard the Gospel. Despite the fact that we
didn’t had permit, the Policemen hid to allow us to freely evangelize
the town. Now ART Co. Torrijos is preparing for the next project: “EL
JUICIO FINAL” theatre play. The entire church will participate again,
English class is winning soul
session for us. Gladys & Donnah asked Rey
why they need to start with a simple English prayer in our classes. He
shared the Gospel as a reply. They both accepted the Lord & now
excited to learn more, not just English but also about the Lord. They learn
Christian songs, memorizeBible verses and learn to bless others in English.
Daniel from Italy joined ART
Company. For a year, Daniel Wilson
(19 yrs. old) committed himself to help us out in the ministry. Through his father’s
recommendation, after browsing through our ART COMPANY WEBPAGE, he was
convinced that a Sabbatical year will be worth spending in Spain as a missionary. Praise
God, He is now using all his songs (originally composed), ability to dance, theatre
skills & his entire year dedicated to serve for the sake of God’s
kingdom. Please pray for more talented artists like him to join us.
More stuff coming: Weekend evangelism; English classes;
Discipleship Module; Prayer Cell; Ev. Film Showing; “REPERTORIO”
TV program; Leader’s training conference in Toledo (Nov.6-9’07);
ART Co. Festival in Pz. España (Oct. 27’07); Church Convention in
Gandia, Spain (Nov.9-11’07) -> Please pray for God’s blessing
in all these wonderful opportunities to reach the Spaniards with the Gospel.
