Our First Sabbath Church Service

What would church be like so far away?

God is good and we found ourselves among the worldwide Adventist family. We were greeted by many handshakes and hugs, and we knew we were not away--we were at home!

Worship started with Sabbath School, studying the same lesson everyone studies around the world. For the church service, the pastor spoke from Colossians 3:1-3, " If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God."

This was a very timely message for those just baptized last week, because they have made a break with the world and are seeking "those things which are above." But if we will hear it afresh, it is a message that will help us all grow. The picture is of some of these new converts receiving their own personal copies of the word of God. "Amen!" sounded through the congregation.

But the surprise was to find that three of those baptized here in Suchitoto were ones that Jorge had been praying for a long time--family members! Our God is an awesome God!
