First Day – Students Saved

FB_IMG_1467719804859After arriving yesterday to Guatemala the team eagerly anticipated getting to work. We arrived at the lodging and got settled in, had dinner and then practiced the drama a few more times to perfect it. We had a short commissioning service and then headed to our rooms to get ready for an early start.

Today did not disappoint anyone’s expectations. We presented testimonies, our drama, and the gospel of Jesus to 6 schools, most of them public, and over 2000 people including parents of some of the students! It was amazing!

At one school, one of our missionaries felt the Spirit urging her to go approach a student. She went with another male missionary since he was a boy, and the boy received Christ! In a different school, two girls were visibly touched by testimonies and two of our missionaries led them to Christ! These are just a few stories. Many people came to know Jesus as their Savior today.

When we arrived back at the hotel, we had dinner and then team time. We shared stories, encouragements and even a little constructive criticism. Then, we had a powerful time of worship when we were all reminded of God’s love and how much we want to see others here in Guatemala experience it. We feel refreshed for another big day tomorrow!
