Today we were able to be a part of the celebration of the 7 year anniversary of the Zone 21 church. What a great day of celebration it was! Not only were the members of Bautista Elim Church in Zone 21 in attendance but also members from each of the other 3 churches that they have planted over the last 7 years. It truly was a morning filled with heartfelt worship as we all sang praises to God regardless of what language we were singing.
It was also a time to reflect on the great things that God has done through this church, not only in Zone 21 but also in the 3 other communities where churches have been planted. These churches continue to grow and be a part of the community by getting into the schools, making house visits and providing for the needs of the communities in which they serve. God is doing amazing things through each of these churches and He will continue in the years to come under the leadership of all 4 of these pastors.
We spent the rest of our day eating an authentic Guatemalan lunch in honor of the anniversary as well as continuing in the ministry of Bautista Elim by doing house visits to deliver food for their needs and the Gospel for their hearts. This truly was a day the Lord had made and I a so glad He chose us to be a part of it in Guatemala.
