Monday - We went to a private school on Monday evening. Hannah led worship
and Erica McNease shared her testimony. Tough crowd. No response.
Tuesday morning our team went out to serve by taking baby gift packs to the
hospital in Ocotal Nicaragua. Hannah, Erica and Jackie were able to hand many
packs to many of the young mothers there. Rayland, Hannah, Jackie, Erica and
I were also able to pray for one of the ladies who had cancer as well for healing.
Later that same day our team visited a transition home for ladies with newborn
babies. We ministered to a lady who was a dwarf who did not know Christ. Rayland
began to share the gospel with this lady. Our interpreter Heidel took an espanol
Gideon's Bible and continued sharing the gospel with this lady. She decided to
trust in Jesus as her Savior. This was a powerful moment as it was our first convert.
We were also able to pray that her baby be dedicated to the service of the Lord.
Later the same day our team had the opportunity to sing and share a brief testimony
about what celebrate recovery is all about as well as Jackie sharing her testimony
to be recorded for a local sports channel that was broadcasted out to reach 60,000
potential viewers. Hannah was able to lead five different songs during this recording.
The sports caster recording us made a comment after he heard someone say the
guitar sounded really good – he said "it's the person playing the guitar that makes
the guitar sound really good". Rayland also gave a summary about Celebrate
Recovery - Jackie shared her story of encounter with the Lord from hopelessness to
hope in Jesus.
