Pastor’s Desk

It is a good Day, Hello! Ok, first while I think of it, this coming Sunday is Cookie Sunday. Please bring cookies. I prefer chocolate chip, or ginger bread!

 Our outreach this year has eight of our teens and eight students from C.E.C. coming to help. Pastor Mayra, myself, Mark, and Patricia of SCCC and Steve and Denver of C.E.C. were also present and helping. We were set up at the round about near Pemex gas and the Hotel Los Jitos. We really had fun doing this. We handed out about1500 books that were in Spanish telling the stories of living taken out of sin and into Jesus. Also about 1000 paper invitation to the church and just over 900 bottles of water.

The youth were so enthusiastic about this we had to remind them to stay on the curb and mind the traffic. The C. E. C. students showed their training and were very skilled in reaching people on the street. In two evening, we were all out of material and energy. What we thought would take three evenings was finished in two evenings.

The SCCC youth and Pastor Mayra stayed at our home. Have you ever had 8 teenagers play hide and seek in your house! It was hilarious. My wife and I really enjoyed our time with the youth.

I think it was a big impact and confidence boaster for the youth. They were timid to start but that did not last past the first evening. They also found my little aluminum crosses and gave away hundreds of those. They would even catch the people getting on the bus to offer them the gifts. It was a delight to my eyes and hearts to see young people powered by the work of evangelism.

Will we do this again next year? Oh yes, we will.

Now please pray for those who took those books that the contents of testimonies will convince them that the emptiness of the world can be removed by the full love of God.

We had a Good Friday service and celebrated the Lord’s Table. We had 65 people attend the service. At SCCC we have a lot to be grateful for. Our lives are changed by the sacrifice of Jesus. There are many martyrs through history. But this was not for any heroic cause but only that the wall between creation and creator could be removed only by this sacrifice. That Last Supper speaks to us even now. We pick up the bread and eat. We take a cup and drink and by this action we identify with the Lord’s broken body and spilt blood. It was for us.

I fear for the people who came to San Carlos this weekend and left without knowing Jesus. Their hunger is never filled.

Sunday the message was from Luke 24:1-9 of the resurrection of Christ and that the earth suffered a wound. But as a mother suffers in childbirth and then rejoices, so does the earth. The creation released its creator!

There was only one grave that was sealed and guarded in case the Silent should speak, or the Dead should walk or the Pierced should breath. The dead are not suppose to talk, or walk or breath. But there remains an empty grave.

There He was the Light of the world sealed up in a small dark, damp room mummified in wrappings of cloth, closed into the blackness of dark earth. The Creator was resting in His creation, crucified upon wood of His own creation. How great it was for a tree to be shaped to hold its own creator. What honour given to a tree that it would hold the blood of the creator.

How famous amongst the rocks was the stone that was cut and carved to become womb and the birthing place of its creator.

The stone was rolled away. The empty grave speaks. The earth was void of the treasure it held. Jesus had left. And for a testimony we have a stone rolled away. We have the testimony in the Scripture that He arose from the grave. The earth received its wound when the Creator that it tried to hold, stepped out. And we as a church testify that Jesus is Risen and the Lord! A message each believer witnesses from their heart.
