Hope for Santa Fe
Spanish District’s Series Brings People to Jesus
Santa Fe, N. Mex » The Santa Fe Spanish district (Airport and Marcy Park Churches) held a week-long series of reaping meetings called “Una Esperanza Para Santa Fe” (Hope for Santa Fe) with guest speaker Ernest Castillo, North American Division Vice-President for Multilingual Ministries.
Castillo shared enthusiastic spiritual messages that engaged and encouraged our guests to attend without missing a night. On Wednesday night, Castillo made an altar call to pray for those who needed physical and spiritual healing. The next evening, he made another appeal, and 10 people decided to follow Jesus through baptism. Three more made their decision for baptism on Friday. We praise the Lord for the leading of the Holy Spirit in these lives!
Castillo gave a special gift to individuals who attended every night. Many visitors shared that they had been greatly blessed to learn about the Bible and that they didn’t want the meetings to end.
A great celebration took place on Sabbath, both at the church and in heaven, for the 13 people who took their stand for Jesus through baptism. Leonard Cummings, district pastor, made another appeal that afternoon and seven more people stood up indicating their desire to prepare for baptism. Praise the Lord for those precious decisions!
The week was not only one of hope, but of spiritual revival. “Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart” (Psalms 37:4).
