On May 11, we received the visit of 9 young people from the YWAM Foz de Iguazú base, in the state of Paraná-Brazil.
We have previously received teams made up of YWAM DTS students from different countries, but this was the first team from Brazil that we received at our base.
At first we thought that the language barriers and the absence of translators on both teams would represent a great challenge, but once again God glorified himself in the midst of this, reminding us that languages and cultures are not a barrier for Him. But rather bridges and opportunities, nations are part of the heart of God.
The team was a great blessing to our church and community. They assumed the leadership of the different programs and services that we offer as a church and foundation. Ministering in prayer services and Sunday services, praying and blessing the families of the church with their visits and participation in the cell.
Its impact was not limited to our “four walls”, in the afternoons the team dedicated itself to community service by cleaning public spaces, parks and sports fields. On more than one occasion we saw an immediate result: children from the community, seeing them clean, also joined and became aware of cleaning and caring for public spaces. This also served to be able to share the message of hope and love with the neighboring neighbors who visited the parks or who were around.
The evangelistic heart of this team burned with passion. Every night we make impacts in the streets with evangelistic dramas and fire shows, in public squares and places in Cieneguilla and Manchay.
We also had the opportunity to visit the “Casa Don Bosco” program for a whole morning inside the “Maranguita” prison for minors in Lima. This time was very impressive, both for the boys in the prison and for us, we could see the hand of God, moving and once again loving the lost.
