Prayer Letter/Ministry Update

He's Risen Indeed!
We had a record attendance at El Estar Alliance Church on Easter Sunday. We worshiped, heard the Resurrection story, creatively participated in stations, had an Easter Egg hunt, ate brunch and celebrated Christ's sacrifice for us. John Piper sums it up well..."The highest act of love is giving of the best gift, and if necessary, at the greatest cost, to the least deserving. That's what God did. At the loss of His Son's life to the totally undeserving, God gave the best gift, the display of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God."
Earlier in the week several of us gathered in our living room to watch the movie "Risen." One of the ladies was impacted by the fact that "we are the Church." She said as she thought about the recent fire at Notre Dame, "we are what is left after the church burns...before the people had to go to the Temple to meet God, but now we are the temple, and He lives in us."
In March we celebrated the first anniversary of the El Estar Church. Words like "family," "comfortable," and "meaningful" were used to describe our community of faith. People are beginning to come more often and have even begun to get involved in serving. Our team is currently leading 5 different small groups, ranging in age from teenagers to octogenarians. What a thrill to read the Bible with some that have never read it before and to watch them begin to interact with God's truths, promises and stories.
Thanks for your prayers for Adventure Camp in February. Everyone had a great time, leadership skills were developed, friendships were forged and lots of fun was had! They loved the outdoor activities, the time around the campfire at night...but not washing the dishes!
All of these are reasons for us to celebrate! We celebrate the fact that you are part of our prayer team, and for this reason God is at work. Remember our friend who was sent home from the hospital to die last year at this time, he called us last week to invite us to his 80th birthday party next month! We decided as a team that we need to celebrate the "small" victories, which in the end are actually big victories. In this most secular city in Latin America, we are sensing that God is at work, and that we are just along for the ride.

Thanks for being on our team! Bruce and Steph
