Some long time friends came to visit us here in Pisco. They brought along their inspiration to minister to women by hosting a ladies conference and a community outreach. We felt like we were just resting from the last flurry of activities but I guess the Lord didn't want us "taking it easy". Although we had just about two weeks to plan these events, they were a great blessing.
Pastor Roberto Vargas serves in Escondido, Ca along with his wife Ruth and son Lucas. We have know them for years and were so refreshed by their visit. They were used greatly to refresh the body of Christ here, provide biblical counseling and encourage a family that were particularly afflicted due to severe trials. We could clearly see God's perfect plan to bring Roberto and Ruth here. Pastor Roberto shared how the Lord saved him from dealing drugs in the cartels of Mexico and transformed him into a child of God. One never tires of hearing how the power of God can change and transform any soul that is lost.
Ruth was used mightily in the ministry to women as we hosted a dinner. She shared how God's healing touch can cure our hearts and liberate us to love those who have hurt us the most. Many of the ladies, as well as the youth, shared how they were touched by the Lord through Ruth's testimony.
We were blessed to receive their comments about the church here. It was shared by them that they could see warm and loving believers who are servants with heart. They felt warmly received and have a desire to return next year with an outreach team.
Our church has been invited by other city leader to do a community outreach in August. Please pray for our worship team, kid's outreach team and the hearts of those who will attend. We will keep you posted as the event gets closer. Once again, thank you for lifting us up in your thoughts and prayers.
