Hola, todos!

The New Hope team is happy and healthy, full from the pizza celebration we had in honor of Alex’s birthday!

After practicing the drama this morning, the team headed for bilingual worship at La Comunidad Bible Church. The sermon stressed how we should follow Jesus’s example from Matthew 6, praying for God’s name to be glorified and for His kingdom to come. Our priorities and desires should align with our Savior’s, thus the spreading of the Gospel should be paramount in our lives. 

With this in mind,  the team headed to the market street called Cinco de Mayo to use the drama as a tool for evangelism. A national news camera caught the first drama on film, a large crowd surrounding the team on all sides. Sunday shoppers paused in their tracks during each of the four dramas the team performed today, and the story of God’s great plan was unfolded before hundreds. 

The team members are assigned into small ministry groups so that after the drama they are able to approach those in the audience to discuss the “story you can only see with your heart.” In these ministry groups, the team is able to engage in one-on-one conversation through translators with locals, tourists, people of all backgrounds and ages. As a group prayed with a man who wished to give his life to Christ, the man broke down weeping. Moments like this, in which hearts are truly changed, remind us that it is the transforming power of Jesus driving Christian missions (at home and abroad).

We ask that you be prayer warriors for the team this week. Please pray for:

  • Focus and Depth for the team
  • Open hearts
  • Ears eager for truth

In Christ,

Steph and Daniel
