I woke up quite tired after a short night’s sleep. I read Genesis 29 for prayer and devotion. God fulfills his promises (cf 28:3), whether through human affection (29:20), lack thereof (29:31), or deceit (29:23).

ICCC devotions were led by Rev. Dominique Épo from Yaounde, Cameroon.

Part of the morning was given to testimonies from some young people, followed by a group picture of them. May they seek the Lord and he send them out into his harvest field!

Rev. David Horta from Santiago, Chile spoke on God’s love manifested in the believer’s praise, worship, and obedience

This young man is Jhoss Mondragon, and we’ve developed a good friendship. He wants to study to be a pastor or missionary, and it’s been a great blessing to encourage him.

Technology helped me yesterday communicate with these friends! Google translate has an amazing app that has helped bridge the gap. It’s not 100% but it’s waaaaay better than my 1% Spanish (and that’s probably being generous)! We had a lot of laughs “talking” with each other 😁

Last but not least is Rev. James Mwangangi from Isovya, Kenya. We talked for a good hour about ministry blessings and challenges. I’m thankful for this brother’s perseverance, encouragement, and zeal for the Cause of Christ.

I have appreciated the friendliness and hospitality so many folks have shown. The love of Christ is truly manifested by such dear saints of God!
