On the Chipurana: Day #4

Thursday, April 22, 2010

This morning our meeting with the church went from 8 to 12. I preached Philippians 2:1-4 and afterward Edy preached Acts 2:42. Two sermons wasn't enough for them so I then went through a Bible overview. To finish it all up we had a great time of questions and answers. The brothers were begging us to come back soon. Santa Martha is a very nice village. After lunch, once again we went back to the boat and back to the “Book”. We read 1 Corinthians out loud today. Arrived in San Jose and were served a second lunch (maj├áz, plantains and chicha). Prayed for a girl that was supposedly sick from a witchcraft curse. The girl is the grand daughter of the main elder in church here. Sadly, the elder was planning on taking the girl to a different witchdoctor to reverse the curse. The church here has a very bad testimony. Two of the other church leaders are drunks. I had to come down pretty hard on them. That night I preached open air 2 Kings 5:1-14. Lots of people (150) were there to listen and seemed quite moved but no one made a public profession of faith. It seems that in a lot of these villages (especially this one) a lot of people want the gospel but they don't want to have to be part of the existing church because of its bad testimony. Very sad....

To be a stumbling block to someone else, that is a sad (and scary) testimony indeed! I am glad that the call of Jesus Christ is strong. I will be praying for the people of this village today.
