An update from Joselo Mercado, Lead Pastor of Iglesia Gracia Soberana in Gaithersburg;
On September 8 I arrived in Medellin, Colombia to participate in the Muestra a Cristo (Show Christ) Conference. On its second year this conference is becoming one the the largest in the hispanic world. At the University of Medellin Theater, over 1,500 attendees spent 3 days listening to teaching from Bryan Chapel, Miguel Nuñez, Juan Sanchez and myself on the book of Daniel. I was assigned to preach from Daniel 4 and Daniel 7 and I believe the Spirit helped me to show christ in these passages to reflect the theme of the conference.
The conference is organized by TGC and Poiema a Spanish christian publisher. It was clear that the presence of God was among us. Some of the greatest moments came during worship as many times we were singing SGC songs. It was very powerful to listen to songs that we have cherished for so many years in English, being loudly sung in Spanish.
The conference also gave the opportunity to connect with some pastors that I’m relating to in Colombia and have interest in SGC. God has given me favor in Colombia and there are opportunities to serve. In the next year I already have 4 trips planned to this beautiful country.
Please pray for God to give much fruit out of this conference and that the church in Colombia will more and more turn to the true Gospel.
