Just a quick update to let you know a little of what’s going on in the days before our church’s inauguration. We’re excited about what God is going to do on Sunday the 13th.
We have had another big opportunity dropped on our doorstep. I received a call two days ago from a Colombian lady living in the USA. Her mom, who also lived with her in the US, came back to Colombia to visit family. She arrived Sunday in Bucaramanga, where we live and minister, and that day had a massive heart attack and brain aneurism. Sadly, this dear lady passed away early yesterday morning. Her daughter, the one who called me, found our information online and asked if we could do the funeral at our church. Both the lady who died and her daughter are believers, but nearly all of the family here in Colombia is not. The dying wish of this lady was that the Gospel would be preached to her family at her funeral.
Today, Wednesday, at 3 PM Colombian time, 2 PM Eastern Standard Time in the US, I will be preaching this funeral. This will be the first service officially held at our new church building. The family expects around 50-80 people to attend, almost all of which would be family.
Pray as I preach the Gospel, honor the deceased, comfort the family and encourage these dear people to place their focus, their faith and their life in Christ. He gives hope. He gives peace. He gives life.
“Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.” Romans 15:13
Thanks and God bless you all!
– Aaron & family
PS – Also be praying for my pastor and a group from our church that is already on their way here for a visit. We will pick them up from the airport immediately after the funeral.
