Tejarcillos is an area well-known for the control and influence the local gang has on the lives of those living there. It is comparable to a mafia that controls every aspect of the city. It is because of this, that the New Life Church has been called to reach the individuals that live there. Over the last two days, I have had the opportunity to partner with the visiting team in sharing the gospel through a series of VBS (Vacation Bible School) events.
As we conclude this three day series of VBS in Tejarcillos, please be praying...
that God would be glorified for the fruit that begins from these VBS events
for the hearts of those attending...that they would be absorbent and receptive
for the Gospel to be illustrated and exemplified in a real and attractive way
for both immediate and long-term fruit to come from these events
for the safety of the youth as they return to a home filled with violence, addictions, and loneliness.
for the safety of us going to Tejarcillos
for the pastor and the church body...that they would constantly seek after the guidance and power within the Gospel
for a future piece of property that will serve as a place of discipleship and worship where people will be encouraged and challenged.
for the acceptance of Christ in this area that will lead to long-term discipleship of many kids, parents, and families.
