This was our second time to return to Sechura and once again we witnessed an abundant harvest of souls.The 3rd and final night of crusade in Sechura the Holy Spirit fell on the crowd of over 1500 in such a powerful way that may received fresh baptism while hundreds spoke in tongues for first time.The youth were especially moved, fell on their faces in worship and could not be contained in their new-found adoration of their Saviour.Even at 11:30 p.m. the crowd didn’t want to leave as they just loved basking in His presence.
Sunday morning we were invited to the swearing-in ceremony of newly elected leaders by the mayor of Sechura.His assistant, a Christian lady, had invited us to come and pray over the mayor and new officials.We were ushered inside the mayor’s expansive office where Jim shared some testimonies and spoke prophetically over the mayor and this region before saying a prayer of blessing over him.The mayor listened openly and seemed happy to receive these words.
In the afternoon the local church hosted a Children’s Show, which they do every 3 months, inviting all the children from the church and asking them to bring their friends.It was electric in the auditorium packed with almost 500 children who watched the clowns, listened to the gospel through drama and words and responded eagerly.Our team had fun passing out candies and cookies, which we bought, not anticipating such a large crowd.
Tonight we are holding a one-night crusade in outdoor park in Piura.Our team took to the streets, passed out flyers and invited people to come.Jim shared on the 7 mountains to a group of 30 hungry pastors and their wives in hotel this morning, which was well received.
The team of 13 from 5 nations (U.S., Canada, Australia, Mexico & Peru) has been giving out and enjoying seeing the way the Lord is touching and changing lives.We are blessed to have a young friend Victor Hernandez with us preaching powerfully at nights along with Jim.
