True Path Ministry Inc. went to Purisma, a tiny village deep in the mountains. There were twelve who made the two hour trip with us from Galeana. The last hour was on gravel road that was extremely steep and rough. Plus, the temperature was below freezing, ice covered the treetops. Worship was in a pavilion covered on top but with no sides. Our bodies were cold but our spirit-filled hearts were warm.
Pastor Leobarreo built a small fire beside the meeting place and it helped warm our bodies. The two hour worship service was filled with music, songs, testimonies and a stirring sermon by Pastor Jose. He and his family came along to help. Our good friends Juan and Sandra were with us too. She sang and he played the accordion.
Martin and Ana were also with us to help keep things moving. After the service we gave each child a Christmas gift bag filled with small toys, soap and candy. The adults got to select items from a pile of donated clothing. We also gave out several pairs of reading glasses and Bibles. Sandra operates the Nuevo Corazon feeding ministry and she brought bags of food for every family.
Even though it was very cold, the weather did not detract from the fellowship and love of Jesus we shared. It was a joyful day serving the Lord!
