Time to Dance

We celebrated the day of the Bible this weekend; 445 years ago it was translated into Spanish and I got to see a miracle happen that I have waited for, for two years – my friend who had back pain due to a fracture in a disk in the low back was completely healed and &hellip Continue reading »

This week I have been at the National Pastors’ Conference for Nicaraguan Assemblies of God and gotten really inspired by the gumption I’ve witnessed. The denomination invests in sending out Nicaraguan missionaries internationally in a nearby future. When I came here two years ago Nic.
