Tuesday was our first day of regular ministry. We began at the church where we prayed with our team of nationals and set out to do ministry. This consisted of door to door evangelism and follow up discipleship meetings with new believers. It is awesome to see God empowering and emboldening the nationals to both share their faith and disciple new believers.
At one of Carrie’s team’s discipleship meeting, we learned that a Catholic man who was open to studying God’s Word was a cousin of the woman who died. This confirmed hat God was working despite our changed plans on Monday at the funeral. This man had seen us attempt to model the gospel before him at the funeral, and he was now hearing the message of the gospel through discipleship.
Tuesday evening, Carrie taught an I Am Second lesson on John 4, the woman at the well. It was a blessing to be able to worship with the women who gathered together to study God’s Word. God is moving through His church in Riobamba.
