Wednesday was a continuation of working with our house church team to share the gospel and follow up with discipleship meetings. It is amazing to see the nationals take the reins of the ministry. By this time in the week, my goal is to simply walk along with the nationals to be a cheerleader and an encourager.
Today, we had the opportunity to go and minister to senior adults in a nursing home facility. Kelsey had prayed that God would lead me to do something out of my comfort zone, and this was definitely it. At the nursing home, we were not able to preach or share the gospel. We were simply there to model the love of Jesus by loving on people that others had forgotten. This was a powerful time as a prayed over senior adults as the nationals trimmed their beards and talked with them. Jesus cared for the least of these throughout His ministry. Today was a good reminder that I do not need to neglect reaching out to those who have been forgotten.
Our dinner for tonight was the beloved Ecuadorian rodent, Guinea Pig. It did not have much meat, but I survived eating it. It is always interesting to eat local dishes. You never know what you will get.
Tonight, we had our first I Am Second study with children and adults hat we had been sharing with this week. The nationals led both studies. It was a blessing to sit back and see the Holy Spirit working through His people to minister to new believers.
