My recent post included a testimony of the work of Franklin and Hilde in planting the new La Red (The Network) UMC in Barquisimeto targeting the Sunday vendors in the Central Market. They continue to do construction on the site of this new congregation. Here is what we just heard from them through Dan yesterday:
“Jairo (a student in the Seminary and General Contractor for the church construction) brought a new worker to the job site for Franklin and Hilde's church construction project. Franklin asked the new worker his name and whether he knew the Lord. The man said he used to know the Lord but had strayed. Then the man began to cry and couldn't stop. Frank led him in a prayer of re-commitment, and asked all the other workers there to pray for the man. They had church! God is good.”
“Later today two ladies came to visit the construction site because some of the workers had told them it was going to be a church. One of the ladies told Franklin that some time ago she had been praying and God revealed to her that that precise house would one day be a house of prayer. She went to the house and anointed it with oil and asked God to make it so. This was very encouraging to Frank and Hilde because it confirmed that they are in the right place at the right time and that what they sensed God telling them concerning the direction of their ministry, their target audience, when they were praying in your (Warren’s) January Seminary class, was indeed from the Lord.”
I just wanted to share this good news and let you rejoice with us concerning some of the ways the Lord is moving in the work of the church in Venezuela. Your prayers and service and giving are having a huge and eternal impact for Christ in Venezuela. Thank you.
