Bello Day 1

Our Team has arrived safe and sound in Colombia! We excitedly hit the ground running on Day 1. Here are some images from the day! Please continue to pray for open doors and hearts!
 
Mike had an opportunity to appear on one of the largest television stations in the Spanish speaking world, reaching about 45 million people around the globe. The network is owned by Christians but the programs are not heavily religious, reaching a mostly secular audience. The Lord gave Mike great favor during the interview and he was asked by the network to record a number of spots that can be shown on a regular basis, with each giving a life lesson and pointing the audience to Christ.  Mike will record several spots later this week while we are here and they will begin airing immediately!

Our Serve Teams had the opportunity to visit an orphanage as well as an organization that feeds street kids. This is a photo of the Team sharing testimonies and presenting the Gospel to the street kids whom they served.

This is Angelica. She has lived in the orphanage for 9 years. Her mother died when she was 10 months old, leaving her with an abusive father until the orphanage found her at the age of 10 and received her into their care. She is now 19 years old and is grateful for this home and the people who have cared for her.

At the orphanage, we found empty cupboards. We were able to provide a couple hundred dollars of rice and beans that will feed the kids for a month! What a blessing! THANK YOU for making this possible!
