Planting God’s Word in Rayones

The woman came forward “I want this Christ you talked about in my life.” Pastor Reynaldo prayed with her as she repented and opened her heart to a new life for Jesus. Pastor Rey’s text for his powerful sermon was from 2 Corinthians 5:17; “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”

She was not the only one moved by the presence of God as the group from Galeana, NL, lead worship, kid’s time, handed out gifts and clothes. Both the givers and the receivers were blessed by a great day in the Lord.

Going to Rayones involved about a two hour drive to travel just 20 miles. The town is directly through the mountains on steep and very rough roads. While the drive may have been slow, we enjoyed the beautiful scenery.

A Christian tract was inside each child’s gift (click on a photo to see it larger).

Pastor Reynaldo brought a deeply moving message.

Juan gave his testimony how the Lord brought him through a serious medical issue.

Several others gave heart-felt testimonies.

Each child received a gift bag and a stuffed animal.

Clothing was laid out on a tarp.

Reading glasses were popular.

A good size group came from Galeana.

The road was difficult but beautiful.
