God did it again! He showed up and showed off. This time it was in Lima, Peru.
This July I had the honor of being one of 136 people who answered the call to go on a short-term missions trip to Lima with Missions.Me.
I had traveled with Missions.Me last year to Honduras, but this year I was the only New Yorker on the team. I didn’t know anyone, but no matter. God once again connected me with a super team and wonderful roommates!
Every day my team of 33 (Go Dream Team 3!) would travel to schools, marketplaces, and parks to perform skits, dramas, preach the Gospel, and pray for young and old. The people were so warm and friendly. And they were hungry to receive Jesus!
A combined total of 1,000 people came to the Lord each day! Every day, all six teams were coming back with testimonies of how God was saving people, setting the captives free, and healing the sick.
I was personally blessed to be able to minister to people in Spanish, which is usually like asking a righty to do everything with her left hand.
I’ll share more about some of the people I met in another post. For now, I’d like to rejoice that some 50,000 people came to the Crusade we held and that 13,001 people made decisions for Christ that day!
I’m so grateful that we got to preach Christ freely and openly! I pray that the seeds we sowed will be watered for years to come!
A special thanks to Agua Viva church for making us feel so welcome! God is doing an amazing thing in their church, which has 80,000 members!
Whenever I see God do miraculous things in foreign countries, I come back hoping and praying that He’ll do the same here in the United States! Jesus is Alive and Active my friends! May you see His Miraculous hand working in your daily life as well! And may you never tire of sharing the Good News about Jesus with others!
“As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.” (Acts 4:20)
