Second Family Conference in Mexico
––and not in a fearful love, but the kind of love that gives us an assurance that by doing so we are imitating the sacrifice that Jesus gave by dying on the cross. I believe it was said correctly that there “were many divine appointments,” as many shared that even though they struggled to make it to the conference, God made a way and exceeded their expectations. ––both the leadership and the assistants. It was exciting to see the team gather together in the Training Center three days before the conference to set aside time to seek after God in prayer. In the days leading up to the conference, they also received training, worked on the preparation of their lessons, songs, Scripture memorization and crafts for the conference. God blessed their efforts each day leading up to the CI presentation to the parents on the last day. And after the presentation, the parents and guardians of the children and orphans praised God, clapped their hands, and gave the team a standing ovation! We are aware that it was God’s grace upon each of the volunteers that made such an eternal impact on the children. The hard work of the CI team members was rewarded by the joyful tears of gratefulness on the faces of the parents. The parents were thrilled to see that God had spoken to their children as deeply as He had spoken to them!
