Easter celebration

Yesterday was a great day. Jesus is alive! We had a good service at El Camino, where they baptized 10-12 new believers, and then we hustled back over to Pueblo Nuevo for our own service. Things went well. We had good food, a good turnout, and I think some really good conversations with people. We actually started pretty much on time and stayed pretty much on schedule.

We started with a meal. Everyone was going to bring food, but one of the families had made lunch for 200 police officers on Friday (who were on duty for the big neighborhood Passion Plays, yes, plural) so they brought their left-overs and everyone else kind of filled in. Then we held a low-key celebration, with an ice-breaker, reading the story of the Resurrection from Luke, music, a 4-minute Gospel (not Music) video (click here for Spanish subtitles!), and a short message by Abelardo Aguilar. Then we had a Dulce Final–dessert! And people stayed, and talked, and talked, and stayed! We had some really good conversations, including a family that wants to start studying the Bible. In all we were about 50 people of whom maybe 20-25 were non-church people (others were our leadership team and small group members). It was a great way to honor and celebrate Jesus together.

These quarterly get-togethers are one of the steps we take towards an actual church in Pueblo Nuevo Keep praying!

    Thanks for the post about your Easter celebration there with all of the pictures and the video link. It is exciting to see God at work there!

    We wanted to leave a comment to let you know that we read your post and that you are in our thoughts and prayers. I (John) can speak for Bethany Bible Church and say that we are so happy to be involved in what you guys are doing there. God is good and He works in His time as we continue to be faithful to Him.
