The Serve Teams are Hard at Work

The serve teams are using their gifts to share the Gospel in Colombia. Here’s just one more example of the impact our team is having sharing the Good News in Cartagena.


After a much-needed night of rest, our serve teams have hit the ground running for day 2!  Our outreaches this week will be our water project & the pastor’s conference tonight.  Over the years, we’ve found this to be true of every city we visit (and Cartagena is no exception): “Growling stomachs have deaf ears.”  It is for this reason we put so much emphasis and effort into Compassion Aid outreaches that will address practical needs, fill stomachs, and bless households in the community first; then we will introduce them to the Bread of Life that will satisfy their thirsty souls!

Our Serve Team Has Arrived!

The time has finally come!  After a long trip down to Cartagena, Colombia, we are thrilled to report that all 57 members of our team have arrived safe, sound (and tired)!  We experienced the Lord’s traveling mercies in every detail thus far.  The serve team had great first day preaching the good news at schools and orphanages throughout the city, and we know this is just the start of an incredible week!  Please continue to pray with us for the spiritual transformation of this beautiful city!

A Word From Mike!

From Madrid, Spain

As I was standing on a rocky hillside in Madrid, I was in awe of the undeniable beauty and rich history found there.  I couldn’t help but think of the Scriptures when Jesus says that if we listen to His teachings and put our faith and knowledge in to action… then we “will be like a wise man who built his house upon the ROCK…” (Matthew 7:24, ESV).  Friends, when you pray for us and give to our ministry, you are investing in the Great Commission!  You are putting your faith in to practice and building your “house,” your LIFE, on the immovable rock of Jesus!  Join me in praying for God to do a new thing, build a new Church, and resurrect a bright and burning passion for His name, in this city!  -Mike Silva 

I Am On My Way!

Hey My Friends,
Happy New Year!  2018 is off and running for us with a sensational opportunity. As you read this, our Spanish World director, Bayron Lechuga and I are on our way to Madrid, Spain and then on to The Canary Islands (located off the coast of Northern Africa).
This trip is a critical launching point as we go to these places in hopes of establishing key relationships and cultivating future opportunities for evangelistic outreach in this part of the world.
Would you please pray with us and for us this week?
  • The President of the Ministerial Association in Madrid will be our “host” and introducing us to key pastors in Madrid and in The Canary Islands.  Please pray for favor.
  • Pray for pivotal connections to be established and doors to be opened for future outreaches.  We plan to do multiple Pastors Meetings this week.
  • Please pray for a filling of the Holy Spirit and for the Lord to move in the hearts of local pastors – that they would be compelled to partner with us through discipleship and facilitation during a future festival.
  • Did you know there is a pocket of displaced Latinos from Central and South America in Madrid who have fled there for political and economic reasons; and now find themselves isolated in this city?  They are the reason we are going there!  I want to go to them with the Good News of the Gospel! Don’t you?!
  • As we ask God, “Is this a place you would have our team go?” Please pray that He would make the answer crystal clear.
This is just the beginning of what we hope for in 2018/19.  This year we are going to be more strategic, focused, and God willing, more fruitful than ever before!
Stay tuned for our praise report when we get back.
Mike Silva

This Is Your Fruit – THANK YOU!
