It reminded me of Psalm 133:1-3 How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity! It is like precious oil poured on the head … for there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.
We met with another group at a prayer meeting at a supporter’s home. One young woman spoke of needing to buy a second hand baby carriage for her soon-to-be-born child. At the end of the meeting, she gave my daughter the money to buy a cell phone to replace the one stolen from her (reported in the June newsletter). Perhaps this lady has limited funds, but that did not stop her from sharing what she Gwendy, Stan and German with a Bible art painting, at a house meeting in Ottawa. We very much appreciate her gift, and the many gifts from other supporters as well.
In Colombia, not everyone is as kind. Many Christians do not tithe, so it is difficult for pastors to earn a decent salary and for the churches to pay their expenses.
I was invited to give the sermon in Ebenezer Church, a Spanish-speaking church in Ottawa, whose members are from Central America and South America. It was with great joy that I met their young pastor and his wife, the other leaders, the young people in the praise band, and the members of the congregation.
Both Gwendy and I felt the presence of the Holy Spirit, as we wept tears of joy. It was a precious gift that I received on Father’s Day.
