Arrival in Acarigua

Buenas noches from Acarigua!  We are still in the state of Portuguesa, so our travel to this city was about an hour and a half.  On our way into the city, we stopped and worked with a church.  They are in the process of building a new structure, and once it is completed, it will house hundreds of people.  When we arrived to perform the drama here, the church was bringing in students by the truckload.  Literally.  There was standing room only in the beds of these trucks, as kids were packed in there like sardines.  It was awesome to see our students love on all these kids, and the church was very thankful for the ministry that occurred today.

After moving into our new hotel, we returned to ministry to work with another church.  The first site we were in was a high school.  One ministry team had been challenged all day, as every group they talked to was not interested in Jesus.  This team strove to encourage each other, reminding themselves that they are the messengers but Jesus is the message.

Another team was speaking with a large group of students composed mainly of guys.  These guys were rather indifferent to the Gospel, but there were a couple of girls standing nearby that drew the attention of the prayer person in the group.  This student began ministering to these girls and spent a while explaining things and answering their questions about Jesus.  At the end of their conversation, these girls chose to accept Christ.  We saw fifty-one people respond to the Gospel at this site.

A particularly exciting aspect of this afternoon was the opportunity to meet some of the families of our Venezuelan teammates.  After living with them and serving with them for several weeks, it seems like their families are part of our families now.

Please continue to pray for the ministry here, that tomorrow the students will be refreshed and ready to give their all to serve the Lord.

Your Country Coordinators,

Kenny & Whitney
