O Church, Arise

This week, I am posting a modern hymn written by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend—"O Church, Arise."  This song calls the true church to know that we are truly in Christ, and because of who he is and what he has done for us we have a sure hope to boldly persevere in the faith despite our trials and struggles as we reach out in love to those in darkness.  That is what this song preaches to us so wonderfully.

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

"A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" is an old hymn from the early 16th century written by the reformer Martin Luther.  Luther wrote many hymns which helped to instruct people theologically and served to spread throughout Europe the truths restored by the Reformation.  This hymn is based on Psalm 46.  It has also been called "The Battle Hymn of the Reformation."  There is a reason that this hymn is still widely sung today nearly 500 years after it was written.  Here it is sung by Chris Rice.

2 Thessalonians 3:1 

Finally, brothers, pray for us, 
so that the word of the Lord 
may speed forward and be glorified…

Hello everyone! Thank you for your prayer support. Your prayers are a crucial aspect of the ministry I am doing here in Colombia. Please continue to pray for the advance of the gospel to the ends of the earth and for the work God has for me to do here in Colombia.

Here is an update as to what I'm doing:

I have been visiting with some of the Chamí that live in the shelter downtown. In some ways it has been frustrating because they are not always there. At times, I will have a couple of weeks with some good visits, but then I will have a couple of weeks when I can never find them at the shelter to visit.
