The Connection Conference started on Thursday March 24. What was interesting about this conference is that our vision/theme at our church, Light of the World Christian Tabernacle in Stockbridge, GA is Commit 2 Connect: People to People and People to God. I had ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with the naming of the conference in Peru. Holy Spirit did it all. I spoke that night at 8pm on worship. The people were very receptive and it was a good night. And, did I tell you that Peruvian food may be the best in the world!
This was a very full day. I taught a class during the day on how to do a close reading of the Bible and I taught it using all four Gospel accounts of the feeding of the 5,000. This was also the night when the Glory of the Lord fell in the place during worship. I started laying hands on people before I preached. That is rare! I preached on Holy Spirit and we think over 20 people were baptized in the Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. Praise God for His faithfulness towards me and Peru!
Saturday was another powerful experience in God...the Glory fell again and the people were laid all over the place. If you notice in one pic, they are sitting on the floor while I am preaching because I told them to just stay where they were and don't interrupt what God was doing in their hearts. Not church as usual and I love it that way! This was the night when God spoke through one of the brothers in the congregation. I preached that night after a couple did a great presentation on holiness. Holiness IS right. After service that night, a young man whom I had met the day before asked if he could speak with me. He told me, "I believe in Jesus Christ!" That was music to my ears. Praise God! Then, Resurrection Sunday morning I preached for the last time before returning home. Both Saturday night and Sunday morning's messages were about working in the Kingdom. Getting into the game and a call for workers! Bless you and thank you again for your support!
