A Very Special Sunday for Sendero de Vida!

by Jim on 29 March 2009

I have here some video of a very special service we had here in Ixtapaluca today.  It was a worship service, a gathering of a church not four years old, to recognize its first elder/pastor and deacon, Martín and Miguel.

It was such a great time to focus on the Lord – what He has done, what He is doing here.

We read Acts 13:1-3, remembering how the Holy Spirit chose people for His service in the early days of the Church.  We also read Romans 11:33-36, which reminds us that God truly is great beyond imagination, and at the centre of everything.

Anyway, on with the video.  Some weird things about it – for one thing, I was at the front when we actually laid hands on and prayed for Martín and Laura and Miguel and Tania, so the "highlight" of the service is not in the video.  Maybe I can beg a photo from someone else to show you later.  For the same reason you miss some of the music (since I was playing keyboard).

And I don’t point out these two couples in the video, though I think you do see all of them.  However, there’s a nice shot of Martín with a video camera, and during Rod’s closing prayer you can see both couples to his right.  See some pictures of them here.

Antonio Muñoz also gave a challenging message – a great reminder of the responsibility we all have to be servants in the church – not just a few people.

I’m so thankful to be among people who are looking to the Lord and glorifying Him – that’s what it’s all about!

Thanks for sharing this very wonderful day with us Jim! Unfortunately it was very difficult to hear you at the beginning when people were still visiting before the service started. However, your other comments (both typed and on the video) and the captions all helped me to “get the picture” of what was happening.

Seems like people everywhere LOVE to eat, eh?! 🙂

I am praising the Lord for this little flock in Ixtapaluca!!
