The Month of August
Each week God continues to use the ministry and it's leaders of the New Life Church to reach, serve, and love those who are at the heart of Jesus Christ.
God continues to use teams in mighty ways as they generously, obediently, and joyfully serve God and the people of Costa Rica.
We just finished up "The Month of the Future" and move into August which is, "The Month of Fruit, More Fruit, and Much Fruit. I'm looking forward to this series as we look at some challenging ideas, such as the difference between a Christian and a Disciple.
Arriving yesterday was the Compass Church Team of 31 from Naperville, Illinois. Serving alonside this team, we have the opportunity today, to start some work projects and continue throughout the week with the weekly prayer service, an ALL church dinner, Kids Club, and other community outreach events. Please be praying for the ministry and the hearts of this team, as well as those we will see during the week, that the Compass Church is visiting. Please be praying that hearts would be vulnerable to the very hand of God in our lives and the lives of those around us.
