What an amazing day!
We started the day with spending time with Jesus and then had a great breakfast. A local church called the Upper Room provided a great breakfast of eggs, tortilla's, fresh fruit and cereal for our students. We are grateful for the partnerships we have here in Nuevo Laredo.
Afterwards, the students jumped into drama training. They did such a great job and our team directors led this effort in training for a week of ministry. It was awesome to see new students to Awe Star, alumni, and students from Mexico all join together with one cause in sharing the Gospel.
For dinner, the Upper Room church provided dinner again for the group which was followed by a final practice in full costume of the drama. In our evening devotions, students led in worship and we had a time of testimony. One of our team members from Nuevo Laredo shared this story:
"Six years ago, I saw your drama at a market. At that time, I was not a believer, however God continued to work in my life and I accepted Christ. The impact of the drama years ago is one of the reasons I am here today. Not only I am excited to share the Gospel with you this week, but God has called me to be a missionary."
A holy moment.
A divine moment where God's gentle whisper spoke volumes about our purpose here in Nuevo Laredo. There was no more wondering if God was going to come through. There was no more questioning, "Why am I here?" That holy moment of a fellow team member spoke volumes to our team.
A simple reminder that we never know what fruit will grow through simple obedience. We will never know the full extent of what God is going to do in the hearts of the people of Nuevo Laredo, but we simply need to be obedient messengers of the Gospel.
Pray for a great nights rest tonight in preparation for Jesus ministry tomorrow. Pray for us that we would walk boldly this week. Pray that there would be divine encounters with people that will be able to share a similar story as our team member.
