Hi everyone, just a quick note about the latest goings-on in San Pedro...
Last week we enjoyed the annual Destiny Church missions conference, "Light Your World". Many of the speakers addressed the ongoing economic crisis facing the world, and we were reminded that God's economy is not dependent on the world's economy, and that he is not limited by banks, currency, employment, etc. In Genesis 26 we read of Isaac, who was facing a severe famine, yet in obedience to God he sowed crops and reaped 100 times what he planted because God blessed him. In his letter to the Philippians, Paul thanks them for sending him aid and reminds them that God will supply all their needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus - not some of your needs, not the needs you think will be most easily met, but every need. In Psalm 23 David says that God prepares a banquet in the presence of his enemies - even in the midst of difficulties and trials, be they personal, relational, economic, God spreads before us all the riches of heaven. At times it is hard to do this; our minds limit us and we think, "But this need is so great, it's impossible", but nothing is impossible for God!
Thanks to everyone at Destiny for another great conference.
El Calor opened the second part of the 2008-09 season with a 9-0 victory on Saturday afternoon. This week they travel to Chihuahua, so please pray for their safety and that God will bless their efforts.
