Feliz Segundo Dia de Ministerio!

Today we are thankful for the victory we have found in Jesus. One of the best parts of the performing our drama is that we get to publicly declare over and over that we have overcome through Christ. Praise the Lord!

Today we got to witness many souls surrender their lives to the Lord. In the morning we performed three dramas at Pulga Frente de Chedragui. This Pulga was very big and has huge waves of people going in and out. Today we had several students who had never shared the gospel before lead someone to Christ. They shared their stories with such enthusiasm and joy, truly excited to see many lives forever changed.

One of the coolest parts about being in Mexico is our ability to work so closely with the nationals. It is heartwarming to watch them share the gospel with their own people with so much eagerness. They always notice those in the crowd who might not have been seen by others and are quick to go over and share the love of Christ with them. One of Awe Star’s favorite verses is John 13:35, which states, “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Our team displayed this love towards one another and to the people of Mexico.

After we ate our traditional peanut butter and jelly, the students got the oppportunity to assist in helping with some construction work. All of our students participated in carrying cement blocks to help some men directly across from the church. We love seeing the serving hearts of our students.

We then drov to a church called Bethesda. This church is located in a neighborhood, but it is a recent church plant and is still relatively small. Thankfully we were able to perform the drama for them.

After the drama ended, one of our ministry teams didn’t have anyone to talk to, as everyone else seemed to already have someone sharing the gospel with them. They immediately began to pray for the other ministry groups. As soon as they started to pray, a family walked up to our site. They hadn’t seen the drama, but the students went over to speak to them anyways. This family used to go to church but because of various situations in their life, they felt like they had fallen away from their faith. The Lord spoke through our students and everyone in the family ended up rededicating their lives to a relationship with Christ. Gloria a Dios!

We performed one last drama at Plaza de las Banderas. Although this was a very large Plaza, it didn’t seem as though a lot of people were there. Our students went out to invite people to come watch the drama but it still seemed as though no one was coming. Thankfully, we know that no matter how many people are watching our drama, we are only doing it for The Lord. Our students eagerly began the gospel presentation. By the end of the drama, a huge crowd had gathered and many were saved.

God is doing great things in Mexico! Please pray for our ministry tomorrow, pray that the team will stay focused on our ministry and that the enemy will not let anything distract them from their work. We are excited for what is God is going to do in our remaining time in Mexico!
