Monday night at the Gathering, the women had an incredible time of prayer for healing over 2 month old baby Scarlet. Her parents Rosa and Adolfo are members of Iglesia Bautista Betel, the Hispanic church meeting in our building.
They shared their testimony of hearing God calling them in their lives, but not taking those steps toward Him, making promises to God, but not fulfilling them. Eventually God blessed them with a pregnancy after three years of trying to conceive, but their sweet baby was born with lots of medical problems. Cleft palate. Breathing problems. Almost slipping out of the hands of her caregivers several times. Defective chin which caused her not to breathe right. Stomach infection. Two High Risk surgeries in the Intensive Care Unit. This child brought them to their knees begging God for mercy & healing.
With God's shower of blessings & answers to prayer in His own time, came salvation, forgiveness, redemption, freedom from guilt and shame, hope, strength, and dependence on prayer.
We listened in two languages, but we heard with one heart, the one Christ united us in. All glory be to Him!
Our friend Sam is moving away on Tuesday so we had a farewell gathering at our house. We ate some black bean chili, chatted, and then sang songs of worship to the Lord and finished with prayers of thanksgiving and blessing for Sam. He will be missed.
This is a portion of the message from the August 2nd, 2009 service at Fellowship North. Harold Nash preached about Sexual Immorality from a man's perspective and then invited Ines McBryde to share from a woman's perspective.
